As a "forced" Windoze user with nearly daily machine crashes (Blue Screen of Frustration anyone?) with a high loss record, I have my autosave set for every 5 minutes. I can live with the 3 second pauses. Well worth the potential loss of an hours worth of work that would be impossible to recreate.

Hi :)
I change the default autosave time to something fairly long, around 1 hour or so.  So, if i do 
accidentally spend a lot tooo long making a cuppa tea then at least my work gets saved.

I think the default is fairly annoying but it depends on the person.

Tom :)

        if that was the reason for 'save' then it would save in the same
           rather than some temp [?] folder with some strange name where
it's not findable  ;-)

        I think this same un-findable folder is used for saving when the
program auto-saves;
           for that reason, I always turn off the auto-save ... [I think I'm
capable of knowing when & where to save ;-) ]
              [it's so frustrating since it always seems to happen right
when I'm in the middle of thinking through a thought I'm writing ;-) ]

are you perchance clicking on 'save' rather than 'save as'?

I don't know why the 'save' is there;-)

Obviously it is so that you can easily save changes to a file that has
already been saved/named, without having to save it to an ever different
