Really annoying when auto-save start
on: December 23, 2021, 08:30:47 AM
When in the file dialog, importing an image to a layer or similar, the auto-save closes the dialog by force. Can the auto-save be run in the background without closing the file dialog or stay on hold while in there? It happens all the time and causes a lot of distress. Not knowing when auto-save is going to happen and have to go to the same folder again after a sudden close is really annoying. Especially when working with matte-painting or concept art where you look for images frequently.

Spawning a thread in the background would be perfect but might be tricky when changes are made at the same time. Snapshot of the data?

It's not a bug and really easy to test. Create a new image, add new layer from file, browse to some directory and wait for auto-save to start. Pop! And you have to go to add layer from file again and you have to browse to your last location again.

Christ! I feel goofy. I'm using the desktop version. I was using Astropads Luna and it's so crazy fast that I was thinking I was on the iPad version. Sorry!  :-X
