auto saving assumes no mistakes have been made. and that any deletions are intended to be forever.
not a good assumption.

Scrivener has the best save/backup function of every program i have used in nearly 40 years.

Please add this to Scapple. Otherwise it requires too much attention to be useful, cuz I am afraid of losing important stuff.

Thanks, we do have a request to look into this filed already. The lack of an option is probably an oversight seeing as how there is no such feature on the Mac—but there auto-save is a system wide preference so in effect Scapple can have the feature turned off.
