Although the autosave works fine in my case. I face a problem.
I am guessing that the autosave feature saves our working file once in every 5 seconds. In this span of 5 seconds I usually loose the text I type when the * (asterisk) symbol disappears from the filename on the top.
I did not had this issue in version 1.6, but I get this problem now in 1.7.
Platform: windows 10.
