Auto-Save, as much as it saves me… Also causes problems.
For one, on huge sessions… saving in general takes some time, so the session has to pause.
I feel like potentially it also causes crashes if some sort of process has been executed and an auto-save happens to happen at the same time.
What about offering the user a preference that can be activated in which they are prompted to save?
This would be a non-invasive screen overlay pop-out that can be closed. Or the user can click two visible options
- .bak save
-.cpr new version save.
If the user does a regular ctrl+s save or regular ‘save new version’ save, this would also close the side-screen pop out
