PSF file not saving

To help you better we need some information from you.

*** Please fill in the fields below. If you leave fields empty or specify 'latest' rather than the actual version your answer will be delayed as we will be forced to ask you for this information. ***

Product: PowerShell Studio 2020 (64 Bit)
Build: v5.7.172
OS: Windows 10 Enterprise (64 Bit)
Build: v10.0.18363.0

*** Please add details and screenshots as needed below. ***

Lost all of my revisions because the .psf file did not save. Very disappointed in this product so far.
I created an exe yesterday which has the revisions in it and also saved a copy of the .ps1 (Hidden file) which has the revs in it.
Much to my unhappy surprise, when I opened the file this morning it was not current. I did have one other psf file open at the time yesterday, and was copying some code from one to the other. And yes, I know I saved the one in question, with a right click and Save.

Although is unfortunate that you have experienced losing the work, and we all have been in the same position, we take your feedback very seriously.

Look in the editor Option menu, you'll find the Backup tab where you can set the time for the autosave to kick in. By default is set to 0 minutes.
Here's where we give the control to set the time to automatically save your work.

We give the scripter the power to customize their editor environment.

Anyway, we'll discuss the issue with our team so we can improve the user experience.

It seems a little odd that building the exe has your changes (it has to save for that) and then the PSF would have reverted back to an earlier stage by itself.
Where *exactly* did you right click and select "Save"?

Exactly.
I right clicked on the .psf file tab in both Designer and Script mode.
Odd thing, some of the code changes stuck, but two of the form objects that I had deleted were back when I opened the psf the next day.
