Please help me find my autosaved document- the program closed and I know it's set to autosave every five minutes. Can't find the new version of the document anywhere.
I had the same issue. Lost 3 hours of work. Awesome.

That's because there is a long-standing bug in the software. When you set up automatic saving (select automatically save document changes to temporary file every XX minutes" it changes your user preferences in the AppData>Roaming...UserPrefs file. Except, instead of setting the parameter as "1", it sets it as "true". I'm assuming this was just a typo in the code that hasn't been corrected for years. If you manually go into that file and change "true" to "1", then it works perfectly.

Thanks for reaching out.
You can set Autosave changes from 1-99 minutes. Here are the steps to do so -
1. Hit CTRL+K on win or CMD+K on mac
2. Goto Documents in categories
3. Under save settings set the time to 1 min (in case you want to save it ASAP)
After setting this if you acrobat is auto-closed, it will prompt you to recover old files in next launch.
Do let me know in case you need any further info.
