    Autosave with user selectable time (i.e. ten minutes, twenty minutes).

    Also, Increment and Save, v2., v3., etc.

    I second both as user-customizable auto-options.

    Yeah that's how i work also, i do it manually, i hope the new version won't leave blank file name box when we "save as".

    However, it never crashes to me so i never lost hour of work...

    I can see why some people would want the feature. Personally, I've never been a fan auto-saves, so if it does make it in I hope to see it as an option that can be toggled on and off.
    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.

    You are right, it d be annoying if a long saving process just pop when you are painting, it can be very distracted and huge works can take up to one minute progress bar saving...

    Save early and often

    When I was first learning to work on a computer, I was told to "Save Early and Save Often." This was a play on words based on corruption and voter fraud in Chicago, Illinois (USA), where the admonition was "Vote Early and Vote Often."

    I still save early and often.

    Being limited to the import/export is simply not very practical if want to save often.
    Black triangle cursor option for ArtRage 3 please!
