I have been using my own Autosave code (from ~2013) on our computers... Today I recalled that IP9 has Autosave, which means I need to disable my own code. I went shopping for IP9 Autosave without reading release on the web site, manual, or any help. Kind of like regular user --- who reads manuals today anyway? I found (greyed out) "Run Autosave Now" in File menu, but not way to enable/configure it... hm... When I failed to find it in File menu of IP9, I opened Help and went shopping there for information. After some serious searching, beyond what regular user will likely do, I found everything, read manual, and should be happy.
Except, that means this is unlikely to get used by my users at my instrument. I could setup my instrument computers to do Autosave automatically, but large experiments may need different period than small ones, especially on network drives. Easy access to GUI for users would be useful.
Is there some way of either:
1. opening Misc/Autosave GUI for users which I could add which would open Misc/Miscellaneous Settings on Autosave tab? I can open the Miscellaneous Settings (DoIgorMenu), but it will open on previously opened item, which may be anything.
2. Create new GUI which would control IP9 Autosave? I do not see any controllable parameters available for programmers.
3. Disabling IP9 Autosave when my own code is enabled so there is no chance of conflict?
