Hi Alain,

HE has as Auto Save as save of Auto Recovery.
Difference is that Auto Save is same as normal save (as you press Ctrl+S) but Auto Recovery is additional file with most recent document state stored for "unsaved" documents (file *.auto.tmp). Auto Recovery enabled by default and used if HE or system has crashed to restore your changes.

For configuration of Auto Save: Tools->Options->General  + you can have file specific settings in File->Auto Save.
For Auto Recovery configuration you need to change xml files. settings.xml:
Code: [Select]
<General>
<AutoRecoveryExtension>.auto.tmp</AutoRecoveryExtension>
<AutoRecoveryDelay>30</AutoRecoveryDelay>
</General>

Here 30 == 30 seconds

Best regards,
Alex.
