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.

Why not? But maybe just keep it simple ;-)
Whatever, do you think I should open a ticket or there are really more important things?

    Got it. What is annoying for me is that Zim is synchronized and
    versionned with Seafile: each saving also does a sync, which is
    not useful and creates tons of versions.
    Could it be disabled?

    Yes it is a feature. Saving can cause hiccups in the application
    when typing. So we try to schedule it when focus leaves the window.

        Hi all!

        I'm facing an annoying behaviour (while not so important):
        when I write
        in Zim window and leave it for another window, Zim auto-save
        the current
        content, even if I told him to save every 10 minutes in the
        config file.
        Any idea?
