Yep, people complained that they lost data because the client required the user to click the save icon. So Laurent added auto-save.
I myself have serious issues with autosave and it’s one of the reasons why I use a separate app to write text and then copy it over to Joplin. I tried to introduce an option, but Laurent was against it.
I will most likely create my own apk where this option is included. It’s kind of stupid to use a separate app for actually taking the notes, just because the auto-save screws everything up…
Maybe at one point it will sink in that it makes the app useless for note taking, which should be the primary use case for this app.
