I keeps many notes that are several pages long. I typically take up to an hour to key in one of these notes. While I am typing the auto-save (set to every 5 minutes) kicks in and saves the note. During this process I am still typing, but the UI flashes and I find myself typing into ovlivion. I then need to select my note, scroll to the location where I last was, and continue typing.
I've extended the auto-save time to 15 minutes to minimize the problem, but it would be great if Nixnote, like other text editors could autosave in the background without disrupting the editing/typing process.
