In the Autosave field a backup functionality may be activated, which automatically saves the project when the editor is idle.
If the AutoSave function is activated, then the Idle time defines after which time, without activity, the project will be saved automatically. The default setting is 10 sec. The Max. time defines, after which time the project will be saved automatically, even when there was no idle time.
The AutoSave files will be numbered sequentially and may be imported with the menu command File → Import....
Under Project the default path for saved projects is entered. Below you enter if project files should be saved including audio files, or only with a reference to the original files.
Additionally, there is the setting Conversion: Files will be embedded and converted, if required: Audio files that cannot be embedded in a project file (e.g. mp3) will be converted automatically before saving the project.
