Unsaved changes


#1

Now that there is an autosave feature, does it still make sense to display the annoying “unsaved changes will be lost” pop-up? (annoying because it pops up even if you saved)


#2

Agree that it’s not ideal. The best thing would be to detect any change and only ask at this moment. Still not sure if it’s a good idea to remove it, because it acts as a protection if you misclick on the button to close the application/or pressed Ctrl+Q instead of Ctrl+A (or another shortcut) in a text field.

I suggest replacing the popup with auto-save with a timer. That is, the user must set the timer so that the changes are saved after a certain period of time, for example after 5 minutes


#4

Ctrl+Q? Is that an Apple shortcut? Quit is Alt+F4 on Windows.
Isn’t the current autosave based on a timer?
Yes detecting changes would be great. Another option would be to autosave after each change (building a change history instead of rewriting a whole json to avoid performance issues?). The “more recent autosave” popup at loading is really handy.

Sounds very good! It’s really not bad idea

This is already in roadmaps I guess, I’ve already talked about this improvement somewhere :thinking:
