Hi Italo , Paul , Hi guys  !

I have just remember how I have said in the previous emails : Why do not
made Autosaving Implicit By Default Very Frequently , By Default it is like
10 minutes , I have manual Choose 1 minute the minimum but I have Remember
that Google Docs has the AutoSave like every 2 Seconds ,

Why you do not do the same ? Autosave every 1 -2 Seconds ? and by Default
do not let new Libre Users choose them because can be too late and they
will loose they words , work and the Libre File  and the people will be
very upset .

This should be a Priority , it is a Major Issue and and Urgent One  in IMHO
, Google Docs is doing the same for example .

Loosing your Writing is very frustrating  and people could lose
precious and very important documents , it was not my case , still I was
upset but you got my idea .


I don't know what the <beep> going on but I just saved my work to close it
and reopen it because spellcheck wasn't working and I reopened it and it's
saved 2 words? It did something similar last night but I thought I just
hadn't saved it properly cos it only lost 200 words or so.

2. Same Why the Backup or Temporary File Salvation it is not working
properly too ? As a second net save mechanism in the case like something
Bad is Happening like in my case : saving as Docx , Black out , no more
Electricity so on ?

3. Microsoft Word , Google Docs they have better Recovery Systems I think ,
I think we can learn from them and we can implement ?

4. I have give you the details requested , can you reproduce my case and my
error ?

Thanks .
kind regards,
adrian g
