The naming convention Studio uses differs from the one used in Section manager.
For instance, assume the name of the FAP file is test.fap.
• Section manager creates a file named test.fap~.
• Studio creates a file named test.fap~$$.
Studio also automatically saves other file types such as BDF, GRP, and FOR files.
The naming convention used for these files is the same, for example form1.for~$$.
Database files are not affected by the Use Auto Save option. Database files are
updated after every record change.

Auto Save Interval

You open document B at 10:02
Studio saves document A at 10:05
Studio saves document B at 10:07
