How often does Taskpaper auto-save?

I tried searching the forum and User Guide, but was unable to find the answer.

TaskPaper is a “macOS document based app” as described here:

The autosave behavior is scheduled by macOS’s cocoa frameworks, so I don’t have any definite answer. Just testing now it seems that it autosaves:

  1. Immediately after switching to another app
  2. After 30 seconds of inactivity

But that’s very much just a guess, probably changes behavior depending on many factors.

Thanks for checking. Interesting that the title bar (is that what it’s called?) maintains the –Edited designation even after it saves. I thought that indicated a file had unsaved changes.

That used to be the case, but changed quite a while back (again standard macOS behavior) …

I think “Edited” sticks around until you manually save. It means that a new “version” hasn’t been saved. So if you go to File > Revert To > Browse All Versions then the version save points will be where you did a manual save and “Edited” went away.

Thanks for the explanation!
