Auto-saves coming in InqScribe 2.0

It’s so easy to forget to save when you get sucked into a rhythm of transcribing or video analysis. Everyone has their own techniques, but I like to save files with progressively numbered names, so that I have older versions in case I need to go back to a previous incarnation, or in case the latest file gets corrupted, e.g. “ClassAlpha_v1.inqscr” and “ClassAlpha_v2. inqscr”. I do this with all of my software work: Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop, etc. Each day gets a new name, and I’m in the habit of hitting Command/Ctrl-S every 5 minutes.

To make life a little easier, we’ll be adding an auto-save/auto-backup feature in InqScribe 2.0, to be released shortly (You can buy now, and upgrade for free). But don’t let that stop you from saving frequently!
