In the Tools.Options.Advanced/Expert Configuration there is an 'autosave' option. Is this a document autosave or is it a recovery information autosave?

I was hoping that since we already have a simple configuration for recovery autosave, this would be a document autosave. I set to true all three boolean fields: Autosave, Autosave/Enabled, and UserAutoSaveEnabled.

Restarted LO.

I have a document open to which I have made unsaved changes but the document is not autosaved in the sense I am hoping. I.E. that the changes will be saved to the document..

What should I be expecting from this feature?

As far as I know it only does Recovery Information autosave. If this helps then please tick the answer (✔) ...and/or show you like it with an uptick (∧)

It this is recovery save, why it is included as an advanced option? Autorecovery is standard.

Expert configuration contains every configuration available in the program; some of them are also available in other places of Options dialog and/or elsewhere in the program. Seeing something in the Expert configuration doesn't imply it's unavailable otherwise.

@Mike Kahanski Now I'm not so sure. What do you think of this , It suggests to me that the autosave in the advanced configuration is a different feature than the autorecovery.

I didn't say that "this expert config is that dialog config" - I only answered "It this is [somewhere else], why it is included as an advanced option?" part.

@Mike Okay. Thanks for the clarification.
