Re: Annoying auto-saving when leaving Zim window


Current version it is hardcoded, so requires patch to disable.

Maybe instead of just disabling, the logic should be refined to check the
timer and only do the save if e.g. within 80% of the time to next save.
Result would be that 10 minutes becomes somewhere between 8 and 10 minutes.
