Probably need to raise this on some "feature request" chat but here it goes. Any chance we can have an autosave option on this wonderfool tool? Corporate policies mandate restarts periodically and if you don't remember to save lots of work goes away upon a restart.

Hi, this was raised before and, as I said in that thread, I'm not prepared to handle cases of corrupt data. Is it really so hard to press Ctrl-S?

Fair point was think more of create something similar to the .bak file every X mins until I do Ctrl+S if outstanding save is pending.

When you have multiple windows and are doing a lot of context switching in calls etc sometimes you forget to do Ctrl+S. This is for those moments  :)

Yes, I can understand your use case. I did try it once in a test build. the problem was a noticeable delay in the UI as it saved, even though it was a background task. Perhaps it needs more investigation at some point.

I have to admit to having had lost data and time to recode based on this, so if feature was available I would be using it even if it slowed down every 5 mins. My ctrl and s keys are the ones almost worn out now :) :)
