Shutterfly Has “No Immediate Plans” to Add Autosave Feature
Thank you for contacting Shutterfly.
We are sorry to know about this. We shall suggest you to save the project you are working after every 3 minutes [bold /italic added for emphasis].
We are continuously working to improve the performances of this and also have planned to add more features for your conveniences in future, but have no immediate plans to do so. Any way I will pass on your suggestion to our Engineering department. We do take suggestions from our customers very seriously and are grateful for your insights.

No problem. All I have to do is remember to save every three minutes. Does this remind anyone of the old IBM “Word” crashes half-way through writing a term paper in college? Surprised I didn’t have a nervous breakdown way back then. Thinking back, I probably did. I remember throwing myself on the floor and hitting it repeatedly. Maybe that was just a fit.
After a while, (maybe I scared someone) they actually had the computer lab people lock down computer work every so many minutes and make us run saves. Unfortunately, I don’t have Computer Lab Assistant to help me today.
The good news is, it only seems to log you out after five minutes of inactivity. The bad news is, taking care of the dog can take that long, or taking a phone call, or getting a cup of tea, or answering the door. SAVE FIRST.
