The only Dorico hang I experience regularly is when trying to transform regular notes into dotted notes using the mouse click in the left side panel in Write Mode. Usually, I force Dorico to shut down as soon as it happens.
However, today there was an almost 15-minute time lapse until I shut it down. When I restarted it, Dorico unexpectedly offered to recover the file and the timestamp was ~ 10 minutes after the hanging behavior began. Miraculously, I didn’t lose any work at all!
It looks to me as if allowing it to stay in hanging state made it possible for the default auto-save behavior to continue and for the save to take place. Could that be the case? Or did something else take place and this isn’t a reliable/reproducible practice? Thanks.
