It is an interesting discussion.A while back auto-save was losing my images from the document, now that seems well and fixed. I have a UPS with 15 mins. or more reserve to give me plenty of time to save when the beeping starts, and LO seems so stable now, my multiple documents can sit open for a week or more and I cannot remember the last crash/hangup. I almost wonder if I can turn auto-save off.

My beef with autosave is that it seems to start saving just as I start typing and it does not save my keystrokes while it is saving and I don't notice it is saving. I end up after the autosave, having to evaluate what keystrokes worked and what didn't, and redoing the keystrokes that got ignored. I still find the autosave benefits outweigh these aggravations, though, so I have it enabled all the time.Girvin Herr On 02/17/2018 04:52 AM, Tom Davies wrote:Hi :) +1 to all points there! I hadn't thought through my suggestions!The autosave thing is something that annoys me more than it helps. I don't like my machine putting me on hold when it suddenly decides it needs to dosomething. I tend to switch features like this off where I can and thenjust try to make sure I do my own saving and backups on my schedule ratherthan on the machine's.

Such options used to be in; Tools - Options - ... or something like that and prolly still are.Not a good idea if one wanted to auto-save the "live" document, however depress F1 and search for "auto" in Help. -- To unsubscribe e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org Problems? https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to- unsubscribe/Posting guidelines + more: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/NetiquetteList archive: https://listarchives.libreoffice.org/global/users/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
