New v3.0 Autosaves crippling the performance

Postby oligardner » Tue Apr 14, 2009 8:18 am

I love version 3.0 so far except for the autosave. It's happening so often (after every mouse click or every few letters when typing rich text) that it's making the system run very poorly.
When creating an element (box for example) you place it and try to drag it but you have to wait for the autosave, re-select and then slowly move it - it's become so finicky that it's simply annoying and is slowing down my work tremendously.

This aspect was better in the last version. Not sure if you've changed the timing or just set it for every breath.

Engineering discovered an issue with autosave where unnecessary actions were being performed. They did a patch this afternoon that should speed things up. To make sure you have this patch applied, please clear your web cache by going to Tools > Clear Recent History... > Web Cache. Then do a SHIFT+Reload on ProtoShare.

Please report back if you are still seeing problems after doing this. Thanks.

With ProtoShare 5 (released Feb 28, 2011), we added the ability to turn Auto Save on or off.

From the Editor, click the File drop down to manage Auto Save.
