Postby Hermu; Sun Jul 16, 2017 3:07 am Please, stop needlessly autosave, which blocks only the TX16Wx GUI!

it's really annoyed, every time if a intrument from a GM soundfont file was selected, TX16Wx starts a needlessly autosave and blocks the GUI, because if another was selected next, previous save was needless.

if really needed, the autosave process should be realised as a own thread and should never block the TX16Wx GUI.
what should Saving content "not used" mean which can never be aborted?
the setup option "Show load/store progress window" is actual senseless, because both blocks the GUI.

TX16Wx does not do any auto saving. You are most likely experiencing "undo state management" in REAPER, which, when a parameter in a plug-in is changed, asks plug-in for the whole state blob, which in the case of TX16Wx means it must save a bunch of stuff.
(And this cannot be done asynchronously, as the request is made from the DAW on the UI thread, and it expects a response back in the same call, synchronously).
You can find other mentions of this in the forum. The solution is to turn off "save complete plug-in state" for undo in REAPER settings.
