Please remove "Auto-save" function from stopping the workflow.
I have auto-save setup for every 2 minutes because Premiere crashes so much. I've used this product since 2010. I'll be in the flow of editing and auto-save will pop up and temporarily disable everything until it goes away. It's extremely distracting and I wish it didn't disrupt me.

Hi James, I would get to the bottom of why you are crashing so much as that is not normal. Auto Save is interruptive, but your Auto Saves are too frequent. Every 30 min. should be more than enough and would bother you much less. Come to the forums for troubleshooting your crashes.
