Premiere 2022 does not seem to recovery saves when it crashes. Autosave still works as expected, but when the software crashes (annoyingly often in this set up) it never offers to recover the project upon restarting premiere.
Its hard to pinpoint what is causing the crashes but it seems to happen often when manipulating transparent "essential graphics" text layers. simply clicking and dragging the head or tail of a text layer can cause a freeze which will then need to be force quit. when re-opening the software i have not once gotten a recovery prompt. The behavior seems quite random as it will freeze once every 40 or 50 times i adjust a text layer.
Needless to say i'm an animatic editor and every single shot in my timeline has an essential graphic label that i'm often trimming or mouse dragging out with the rest of the footage.
I'm running premiere 2022 version 22.5.0 (I'm currently stuck on this version with the rest of my co-workers until we complete this phase of edit)
MacOS Catalina 10.15.7
Is this a known issue with this particular version? is project recovery still supposed to work? or is there a way to jumpstart it by trashing preferences or something? Thanks so much in advance.

gotta say, I've never found the project recovery to happen dependably... I have my autosave interval set to 5 minutes so if I have a crash, I never lose more than 5 minutes and usually much less. Autosave only takes a second or 2, so I barely notice it...
We might be able to help determine what's causing the crashes if you tell us your system specs beyond what you've included in your post: amount of RAM, Hardware specs including graphics card and your source properties and sequence settings. And by any chance are you any of your sources from a smartphone or screen recordings? If so, the issue may be caused by sources with variable frame rates which can cause intermittent and unpredictable issues...
