I have a few times experienced that Studio suddenly closes without any apparent reason (I probably unintentionally hit a key combination which results in this). When I open the project again, nothing of the work I've done since I last opened the project, is apparent in the project.

I have checked, and Enable autosave is ticked in the options.

I have a few times experienced that Studio suddenly closes without any apparent reason (I probably unintentionally hit a key combination which results in this). When I open the project again, nothing of the work I've done since I last opened the project, is apparent in the project.

I have checked, and Enable autosave is ticked in the options.

Of course, my work isn't all lost, since it's saved to the TM, and I then can to a ctr+T to have the current contents replaced by the most recent contents in the TM, but it means that if I've worked for instance 2 hours and this suddenly appears, I get an extra 1/2 hour to get back the work I've done. This is frustrating, and is part of the reason I much prefer Dejavu over Studio, since I don't lose any work at all - except if a major crash should happen of some sort, of course.

I can, of course, close the Editor window from time to time to ensure that the contents are saved, but is there something smarter I can do? As it is, there seems to be a bug, since the autosave doesn't seem to work as expected. (I take it the autosave is supposed to save the project file and doesn't mean that each segment is sent to the TM when I leave it, which is a different matter.)

Crtl + S May 10, 2019

Hi Roy,

I very often press Ctrl + S to save whatever the trados program or other program.
It has become a reflex !

Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I am so used to automatic saving in the different programs, even Word, so I never use that. I would have expected Studio to be better than that, though. Dejavu manages to save the project each time one leaves a segment without the user having to be concerned about it. But at least this is much better than having to leave the whole project.
