I’m so glad you created this; I feel like I’ve been going crazy, and searches for something similar were coming up empty. It seems like everything will be going fine as I’m building a model, and then at some point, seemingly randomly, I’ll get caught in the autosave hell, where it just keeps saving after every single action. And it takes a long time to finish saving. It interrupts my whole workflow. I can’t work. I can’t undo. It drives me insane. I have found that I can resolve it at least temporarily by closing the sketchup browser window (I’m using Chrome on Windows 10) and then loading it all over again and opening my model and continuing my work…until it happens again a little later.
I haven’t identified a common pattern to explain when and why it does this. But it interrupts every single session now, and I sure wish someone would solve it, because it’s driving me crazy.
