Manual save and auto-save are the same operation, so this means changes since either. Auto-save runs as part of closing the project, so backups made during that procedure weren't affected by the bug. Likewise, if you used the option to create a backup when performing a manual save, those backups saved all changes. It was only when running either "Back Up Now" or "Back Up To..." after making edits but without saving or leaving enough time for the auto-save to run that those edits could be missing from the backup copy.

The addition of define and especially synonym is most welcome! Just one thing -- at first I couldn't find it because I was highlighting the word and then right clicking -- if you do this, these are not in the context menu. This is how I usually do it in Word, so I was confused at first.

Yes, we're aware of the bug with that, and it will be fixed with the next update so the "Define" option appears for selected text. Glad you're enjoying it otherwise!

Great to hear. Yeah, before this update I kept going to thesaurus.com and it was breaking my flow.
