Saves your drawing automatically at the intervals you specify. You can specify the location of all Autosave files by using the SAVEFILEPATH system variable.SAVEFILE (read-only) stores the name of the Autosave file.
Note Automatic save is disabled when the Block Editor is open.
(SAVETIME system variable)
- Created based on the time interval specified by the SAVETIME system variable, or in the Options dialog box, Open and Save tab.
- Saved only if you have modified a drawing and have not subsequently used the QSAVE, SAVE, or SAVEAS command.
- Saved to the directory specified by the SAVEFILEPATH variable, which by default is taken from the TEMP environment variable.
- Even if a drawing has been created and not saved, an automatic save file will be created based on the drawing name, for example, DRAWING1.bak.
