Why oh why does Creative Suite not auto-save

I’m facing a crash in Illustrator at the moment. I’m going to leave it for a little while to see if it gets its head together, but it’s not looking promising.

I know, I should remember to save things on a regular basis, and I’m usually pretty good at it, but any application in which you spend long amounts of time doing detailed work, whether it be something like Cubase (music production), or OpenOffice (word processing, spreadsheets etc) offers the option to automatically save your work to a temporary file which, after a catasrophic crash, allows you to recover the most recently auto-saved version.

Adobe Creative Suite is the leading collection of creative design tools, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, After Effects, Dreamweaver, and others.

As far as I’m aware, the only auto-save feature comes in either Dreamweaver or Contribute (not sure which), but none of the other applications offer it.

So please, Adobe, I’m sure I’m not the only one clamouring for this addition – bring auto-save to Creative Suite. Save us from tearing our hair out.
