Title: Auto-save dialog
Post by Tom Shannon on May 7th, 2011, 7:30am

I think the auto-save feature in 5.9 is absolutely outstanding.  I've lost significant amounts of work because I have stupidly forgotten to save my files often enough since starting to use TB.

Unfortunately I had to turn it off.  The problem is that whenever the file is saved, the dialog that usually appears steals the focus.  This causes a rather serious distraction from my work (not to mention the interruption), especially if it happens more than every 10 minutes which, to my eye, it seems to do.

Is there any way this could be shifted invisibly to the background?  I really don't think there's a need to see the dialog unless you are actually manually saving the file.

Congratulations on the update.  Its wonderful.

Tom S.

The auto-save dialog in 5.9.1 is dialed back to the intended 10min interval.

Zane: just choose Save or Save As... From the File menu.

Probably worth noting that Simplenote sync (slaved to Saving) isn't triggered by autosave (v5.9.1 tweak). So to re-sync your SN, do a manual File menu -> Save (SN sync still occurs in file open too).

Another save related v5.9.1  tweak is that a manual save resets the autosave counter. This avoids the odd scenario of the user doing a save only to have TB then do an autosave.
