Autosave Extremely Annoying!

Something that happens with Rhino 6 and did not used to happen with Rhino 5 and is extremely annoying. I step away from my computer or work on something else for a while, as you do in a design office. Later, I go to continue working on my Rhino model and the second I click to do anything the first thing the software does is start autosaving!!! its infuriating, especially if you are working on a large model that takes time to save!!

Why can’t Rhino’s autosave continue to function at regular intervals while I am not using it and it is sitting idle, and when I want to jump back in and continue working, I want to do so without having to wait for autosave EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!

Is there a setting I can change? I do not want to turn off autosave completely or make it less frequent. I want it to autosave at regular intervals like its supposed to, not as soon as I want to continue working!


I second this. It’s quite annoying on large files.

Rhino should detect it being idle for a minute or two and then do the auto save. Not when you’re about to start working again.

Options command has Idle Processor options. You can disable Autosave and include Save command in the Processor options.

so doing this, it will only Autosave when I am not using Rhino.
And when I am busing modelling I will need to remember to manually save?

is that how you have it setup?

I too would love to see this fixed. Have autosave work in the background, that way when I come back to it, it will have already autosaved.
