Saving in sketch mode

One suggestion for Autodesk for Inventor 2013, the ability to save while in sketch mode - if you're going to be spending a lot of design time sketching then this needs to be addressed so that the drawing is automatically saved. Otherwise if Inventor crashes (which it often does) while you're busy sketching away you loose your work.

yes, i've made the same suggestion recently

it's worse in 2012 because the view changes when you exit sketch edit if you're looking at the sketch straight on.
