Creators should be able to quickly get in and out of Studio. When coming back after a short break, this means jumping right back into action with zero friction. As part of this, we are releasing a new feature that automatically reconnects Team Create users — you will no longer be prompted with a dialog asking you to reconnect or close.
To enable this feature, follow these steps:
- Go to File > Beta Features
- Check the box Reconnect automatically to Team Create
- Click Save
- Restart Studio
Reconnect automatically to your Team Create place to resume work
There are several ways creators may be disconnected from Studio. For instance, the network may temporarily go down, your computer may go to sleep, or you may move to a location with a different wifi. In these cases and others, you may lose your connection to a Team Create session. The new beta feature enables Studio to automatically reconnect when your computer reestablishes an internet connection.
Previously on Team Create disconnect, the dialog below would pop up, blocking you from immediately resuming work:
If multiple instances of Studio with Team Create places were open, this dialog would appear for each one. With the new Beta feature, you will no longer see this dialog. Instead, it will attempt to reconnect.
Note: Studio will attempt automatic reconnection to your Team Create place only if Studio was kept open. If Studio was shut down for any reason, you will see the Studio start page when you relaunch Studio.
If the initial reconnect attempt fails, Studio will continue to try reconnecting periodically. You can also manually click Reconnect between attempt intervals:
The new reconnection dialog also has a few UI improvements, showing:
- The place name more prominently
- More meaningful error messages
We are continuing to invest to make Team Create connections frictionless, fast, and reliable. We’d love any feedback or questions you have regarding this feature. Please comment below!
