Thank you for creating a superior product that knows when I don't really want that last 10 minutes of work I just did.

Now wait just one cotton-pickin' minute.....we all signed that legal and binding contract when using this software where the catch-all, save their arse phrase of "save often" is listed.

 

Now in the theme of President Clinton, it depends on what the definition of "often" is.

Obviously it's under 10 minutes in this case.

Thats all well and good for what i call a 'hard' crash.

But i sometimes get what i call a 'soft' crash.

 

Sometimes inventor 'crashes' in the background and lets you keep working away non the wiser.

Then when you reopen...the last hour of saves did nothing.

 

Used to happen a fair bit back on 2009/2010 but not so often on 2011 and less on 2012

I think you'll find that Inventor was so impressed with your desktop picture that it decided you needed another look.... immediately.

My personal fav. is when this scenerio happens...

"OK Im just going to extrude this last sketch and then I will save.... "(Extrude Performed), (White Snowy Background Appears), (Blue Ring of Death Appears) CRASH.

That's exactly what happened in that photo, except I was just going to deselect that punch center and then save. Of course if it wasn't for IV's random mid-save lunch breaks I wouldn't put off saving. The truly worst part was that I had fixed some faulty geometry right before this and it must have taken me half the morning just to remember what I had done to fix it.

I don't like to make posts like this but I needed to vent and everyone in my office had gone home for the day. This was all I could do to keep my fist out of the monitor.

Do you check your processes before forcing Inventor to shut down?  Sometimes what appears to be "Not Responding" and the infamous rolling donut of death... is just a slowdown.  Lots of times it WILL come back if you give it long enough.  Sometimes... not so much.

 

But... I have to say... Pro E was the worst I've worked with for CTD with no warning whatsoever.

What is even more annoying is when Autodesk LOWER END software, NO I'm not knocking or anything like that, AutoCAD has a setting for automatic timed saves with out user interaction.

 

So the question should be "AUTODESK WHY CAN'T THIS AUTOMATIC SAVE BE INCORPORATED INTO INVENTOR SOONER RATHER THAN LATER??"

 

May be we should start a petition for this to be included in the next release or two
