Don't Autosave When I'm in the Middle of an Operation


#1

Autosave is not instant and it locks up Studio when it happens.

As a near-term fix, I think Studio should be smart enough to not autosave when I’m in the middle of a drag operation or I’m navigating the system menus.

As a long-term fix, I don’t think auto-saving the level should cause the GUI and 3D scene to become unresponsive.


#2

If it’s any consolation, if you’re in Team Create this won’t happen as far as I’m aware. Most of the time though I’m not working in Team Create, so this is a good feature request.


#3

No this happens in team create. I work in team create all day and it’s incredibly annoying when I’m using terrain tools or resizing a part and the place auto saves.


#4

This is still happening and has been annoying devs since at least 2016.

As a quick fix, just don’t do it until I haven’t pressed a key in Studio for 20 seconds.

Related / the same but a bit broader:

Also related, but Studio completely ceases for a good 10-15 seconds whenever I go to change an Image of a Decal, Texture, ImageLabel, or ImageButton, and it’s super annoying.I’m not sure why Studio can’t just cache the images instead of having to load them in each time you click a Texture / Image property.
