Quote from: eumagga0x2a on May 28, 2021, 04:33:00 PMThe session restore function in designed to recover editing steps (not filter and encoder configurations in absence of editing steps which is somewhat contra-intuitive as it may not necessarily the last session which it would try to restore) from mishaps like accidentally closing the application window. It has nothing to do with crash recovery.

This would be possible via scripting, if a save_project script binding was available.4) Overwriting a single save file (lastEdit.py) is a deeply flawed concept, which doesn't allow for normal user mistakes.5) If an automatic autoSave feature is turned on by default, the user should have the ability to turn it off if he doesn't want it (ex: Autosave Interval (in seconds) of 0 in preferences).
