Autosave !
It is really frustrating sometimes, when construct crashes after a few hours without saving...
if the problem is backing up in the background, i would prefer having construct stopping me every 15 mins for 30 seconds of backup or reminding me if i want to backup, instead of losing my work.

Thanks.

Would be nice. I am now in the habit of pressing CTRL-S every time I make a change... although I've reached a point where it takes about 5-10 seconds to save, so having that on auto-save would annoy me.

I too develop a habit to save every each action i take. I don't think auto-save is a good idea. It is best if one remember to save every now and then. I should have use the latest stable release to reduce crashing.

There's an auto backup feature in the preferences.

At 6 am after a long session you tend to forget pressing ctrl-s :)
I am not asking to make it a default action, but let me choose if i want it to pop up and how frequently, sometimes a little reminder goes a long way.

I am aware of the auto backup, but it won't do you any good if you didn't save.

The habit to save by muscle memory is a must when one works with software.

Autoback means that every time you save, the previous save becomes the most recent backup.
If you don't save, you won't have a backup.
