Managed to lose an hour's work due to the program crashing - when I ran it again, I found I'd lost everything I did subsequent to the last time I manually saved.
Couldn't find an "autosave every x minutes" option anywhere. Is it possible that such a comprehensive program has such a huge defect? Is there really no autosave?

There is no Autosave function in Studio Oct 11, 2009

However the translation memory is saved with every new confirmed entry, so the loss shouldn't be that much, as you can retranslate the file from TM.
You also can "autosave" with your fingers, pressing CTRL+S every now and then.
As Studio SP1 does not crash nearly at all, I do not feel so bad without autosave now, however I would really welcome that and suggested that more than once here and on ideas.sdl.com

TOPIC STARTER
using TM Oct 11, 2009

thanks Jerzy, when I went back to retranslate the stuff I'd lost, it in fact popped up in the TM, which was a huge relief. I have also been pressing CTRL+S somewhat obsessively ever since...
Nevertheless, quite a big oversight on the part of SDL...

Hi Simon,
AFAIK, there is an idea on http://ideas.sdl.com/ideas/detail.asp?i=2258
