Auto save changes focus away from work
As a user, I want to be able to adjust the auto save frequency on cloud documents so that I have more control over my system and my file, and my workflow is not interrupted.
Right now, the auto save seems to save my work every X edits, which would be great if XD didn't slow down or freeze during this, unfocus typing, and generally interrupt my entire workflow.
For example this just happened to me again: I manually saved a document. Then I clicked into an element (not component) and adjusted the text, then I clicked on the parent element and used `alt+drag` it to create a copy. While dragging, the auto save feature kicked in, which unfocused my `alt+drag`, leaving the parent element moved instead moving a duplicate element. Pressed `ctrl+z`, then used `alt+drag` on the parent element again, only to have auto save invoked *again* only this time after I regained control, XD registered the `alt+drag` on a different element, creating a copy of that one.
Imagine this and similar situations literally 10-12 times an hour. Because you can only use cloud documents to create design systems and you can't replace a cloud document with a different local version, this undesirable execution of a feature makes using design systems difficult.
Please consider allowing us to adjust the frequency of auto save for cloud documents, or at the least allow us to turn off auto save.
Thank you for your time!
