This simple macro will remind you to save modified scene over a specified period of time.
When working on large scenes often happens that the autosave starts to freezes viewport and slows down the work process.
My solution allows you to decide when you want to save the file or to continue with the work.
Drag and drop *.mcr in viewport. U can find this tool under category "bgaTools" > "Save File Reminder". Place this tool on some toolbar.
>>> How it works:
When toolbar button "S • F • R" is checked then AUTOSAVE will be disabled and "Time Setup" dialog will popups. There you need to setup period of time for notification.
Spinner value represent time in minutes (default: 5 minute).
After you close the dialog the tool starts automatically.
Uncheck "S • F • R" to stop this tool and enabled AUTOSAVE mode.
This dialog will popups in a given time period only if the scene is modified.
