don't use autosave on Pluma, if you look at the keyboard to type


One of my frequent text editors is Pluma and I like it, but I have been figuring out that if you can't type without looking at the keyboard (as I can't--never learned proper typing technique), it might not be a good idea to use Pluma with autosave. I have the autosave interval set at 1 minute, and I have noticed Pluma freezes during the save.

This would not be such a problem if the keyboard input registers immediately afterward, but it apparently doesn't. Any characters typed in that 1-2 second interval are lost; the result is that whenever I look up at the screen (I do look, just not often enough), I have at least one badly misspelled word. Good thing I don't usually use Pluma to type any interpersonal communication.
