Automatic backup option missing in Program Options/General

Unread postby Patrick Dardenne » Sun Apr 08, 2018 8:32 pm

Hi,
The option "Automatically backup project file every N minutes" does not show on the dialog box "Program Options", "General" tab.
Is there any known reason for this behavior? (I join a screencapture with a red cross where it is supposed to appear according to the help)

Also, I have encountered several times this abnormal behavior: editing a topic A (and not saving it explicitely), when I simply click another topic B to read it, than come back to topic A, my changes in A are simply lost... Did somebody encountered this issue?

Many thanks in advance.
Best wishes,
Patrick

Hi Patrick,

That option is obsolete, see: https://helpandmanual.com/help/index.ht ... eneral.htm

from which:

"Auto-backup removed! The old auto-backup option that used to be available in this location has been removed and replaced with the automatic rescue copy feature."

Information about the rescue feature is here: https://helpandmanual.com/help/index.ht ... encies.htm

cheers,

Martin.
