    That’s useful - could this be modified to autosave with a timestamp? That way you can roll-back the changes when you really mess something up!

  2. I have been visiting this site a lot lately, so i thought it is a good idea to show my appreciation with a comment.

    Thanks,

  3. Having lost TOO MUCH work because of my inability to remember to save, this is a godsend

    Excelent add-on… though it should be part of Flash by default… well, that’s Adobe for you.

    Do you think would it be possible to add a selector for Flash CS3 or Flash 8 (just like in Save As…)? Sometimes I save in Flash 8 mode, for compatibility; due to it, when I use Ctrl+S (Save), appears an annoying dialog telling me that it will save it as CS3, when I want to save as Flash 8. So, as this add-on works over the Save option, the dialog appears. It would be nice to have the Ctrl+S remember what you chose when you first saved, and even nicer if Auto Save extension could add the mentioned feature.

    Anyway, congratulations for this extension, I know it will save the life of hundreds.

    Thank you very much for putting this up! I can see it saving me tremendous time in the future. After losing about 1.5 hours of work I decided to see if there was a tool to auto-save. I found yours and it works great!

    Very indispensable.

    Just to comment on James comment at the top, I can’t believe that this wasn’t enough for him, and that he had to ask for more. This tool fixes a feature that Flash really should have included, but all that James can say is “Can you add more??” Well James are you paying for this?

    As a free feature, it is perfect. Thanks!
