Autosave is here!
If, like us, you’ve every lost work through Illustrator quitting when you’ve forgotten to save, then Ai Auto Save is the app for you. You can set it to check for unsaved, modified documents* on an interval that suits you (1-60 minutes). No more cursing the lack of a built-in Illustrator Autosave feature!
Top Tip: To be extra safe, add Ai Auto Save to your Login Items (System preferences > Users & groups > Your Name) to make sure it starts up automatically every time you log in to your Mac.
Ai Auto Save is available from the Mac App Store. Click the link below for more info and to get your copy.
* Be aware that your Illustrator document must exist on disk to be saved.
