Auto "save"
I would like to see a feature similar to what MS Word has, where if something happens, the changes that were made were saved (but not applied to the actual file). A versioning system and a regular autosave would be fantastic, too.

There is an auto save, every 5 minutes the project is automatically saved.
What's next to be added is undo for all editors.
Yeah versioning system would also be cool but that would take some work smile

You might as well use an external version control system like Perforce or TortoiseSVN.

Esenthel: Fantastic. That's perfect.

Tottel, that's what has to be done for, but with the Esenthel 2.0 system, a versioning system would fit right in and be a huge asset; especially with cross-platform concerns-which versioning systems will work on Android and iOS?

By the way... SVN or Perforce is great. And there is the free Assembla host if you keep it under 1GB. That would be quickly eaten up if you store assets there. So the trick is to store all things EXCEPT the assets. I have no clue how to sort that out though.

You can put certain file extensions on the ignore list (at least in SVN, I don't know Perforce), in Git/Mercurial as well. Easy to do with a tool like TortoiseSVN (right-click on a dds file and select ignore *.dds, e.g.)

Yes. Exactly (the ignore thing). What a simple and bright answer.
Ignore (and all those .png, .dds etc etc). Why didn't I think of that.

Great Rastar grin

How would you do it if you can't see the file name/extension?
V2 uses hash codes for file names.
