Feature request
#1
From my limited experience so far, gimp overwrites the on disk file as soon as it begins the export process, resulting in an empty file for the length of the export. I would prefer it to only delete the on disk file once the export process has completed. If there already exists a way to change this behavior I would welcome the information.

CorelDraw used to do that too and it often resulted in broken files.

No Gimp developers on this forum. The place for feature requests is https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gimp/-/issues

No setting that I know of. An automatic backup at timed intervals has been requested and might be in Gimp 3 (sometime)

There is a plugin that will make incremental backups in case of accidents. I know - not what you are requesting Wink

This plugin that does backups at 10 min intervals has been working for me:

Just stick the gimp-autosave.py file in this folder:
C:\Users\(your user folder)\AppData\Roaming\GIMP\2.10\plug-ins
It saves the backups to the Temp file.

Thanks for the link, sounds like just the thing I needed.
