In complex place files, whenever an autorecovery file is created, Studio locks up for a moment, forcibly deselects any text boxes you’re typing in and blocks all keyboard input, including in the script editor.
This is jarring and incredibly frustrating. This issue manages to catch me typing in the properties window extremely frequently, and messes up my typing when I’m programming and pulls me out of my work.
This operation should not block Studio so intrusively. These same symptoms do not happen in simple places (e.g. default baseplate).
At the very least this shouldn’t deselect my textboxes. It would be awesome if saving could be made asynchronous like publishing though.
To reproduce, you must have a complex place file open (i.e. an entire game). Set the autorecovery interval as low as it can go so it’s easier to catch, type/wait in a properties widget text field or the script editor until autorecovery creates a file. If the file is sufficiently complex, the properties field will deselect, or your typing will be fully blocked in the script editor while Studio saves the autorecovery file.
I only started to notice this starting this week but it may have been happening for at least 2-3 weeks, or even much much longer and my games just weren’t complex enough until now.
My C drive is an older SSD, and all of my other drives are WD Black drives, so my storage hardware is not unreasonably slow.
I only have the Safe Studio Updates beta feature enabled.
Disabling all plugins does not help.
