Does RoboHelp 2017 save temp files somewhere?

Unfortunately after spending a significant amount of time on a topic (Responsive HTML5 format) I seem to have lost all the content. I put my computer in standby mode, but later restarted it, and I can only assume I hadn't saved the file in question. So frustrating.

Is there a location for temp files that I might be able to recover from? And for future reference, is there an autosave feature that I can set to save all unsaved files every so many minutes?

Go to File > Options > Settings > General and you will see a check box (Display confirmation dlalog when) A file is saved. That will force a dialog if you attempt to close a file with unsaved changes.

That's not what you asked for but it is the nearest protection. The other thing is simply get into the habit of before you go into standby, get focus on RoboHelp and press CTRL S to save all.

Personally I see AutoSave as dangerous unless you can revert to before the last manual save. You sometimes start on changes and then decide they weren't the best and want to go back to square one.
