#99 Auto-save disrupts editing

v1.0 (example)
Interface (47)

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.

    Interestingly, if I hit the F9 key to sync, there is no disruption in the UI.

    I'll see if I can recreate it.

    The auto-save only tells Nixnote when to save a note while you are directly editing it in case it crashes. When you change notes or close it should save automatically regardless of the interval.
