As an addition to this: I’ve noticed that discarding unsaved changes has no use and I think this is connected to this issue.
So let’s say:
- I open a document
- I save the document (clean, no additions to the default document)
- I add a piece of text
- I quit the Hype and don’t save
- I reopen the document
- the piece of text is still there
Please see: Quick Question on Auto Saving
Autosaving is a system-level feature that Hype takes advantage of. It ensures that you don’t lose work in the event of an improper shutdown.
Once you save a file once, it will autosave automatically. [quote=“oneuppedgames, post:2, topic:10163”]
So let’s say:- I open a document- I save the document (clean, no additions to the default document)- I add a piece of text - I quit the Hype and don’t save- I reopen the document- the piece of text is still there
This is expected. Hitting ‘Save’ creates a version at that moment, but saves occur automatically unless you adjust your settings explained here.
Just an addition here. I am currently experiencing another separate technical issue (the guys are well aware ) which means I have to quit and re-open and if it wasn’t for the “autosave” feature I would have many projects lost and having to start all over again so, in my opinion, it’s a good thing.
I did not know this was an OS-setting. Thanks!
There’s a way to change this on a per-app basis too. You can disable it in Hype via this Terminal.app command:
defaults write com.tumult.Hype2 ApplePersistence -bool no
Note that we don’t support this change, and along with autosave it also disabled versions for backup.
How can I disable autosave in Hype?
From what I can tell, Apple no longer seems to support this in macOS 10.14 Mojave.
