No auto-save in Ardour 4 ??

Dear all,

could it really be possible that there is no auto-save feature in Ardour 4 ? I can’t find it anywhere in the GUI, there’s also no word about this in the documentation.

Without this feature the program is not of worth for any effort-rich work. It’s simply too easy too loose much content.

You would help me very much if you can help me regarding this setting a little bit. And of course I’m convinced this must-have-feature is also very important for all other users (also in this forum).

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards

The naming is less clear than it could be, since it suggests that it saves to some other file. It does not - this is autosave. Ardour also autosaves after a recording pass.

Hello Paul.

Have many thanks for your very quick and helpful suggeston.
Have a nice evening.

Kind regards
