When the tool crashes (this is happening less with the recent updates, but still happens to me a few times a week) I loose any unsaved work in my scripts.   This really kills my productivty.  Sometimes I don't remember to save...and I'll have several script windows active...I loose them all!  ArgH!!!

This just happened to me a minute ago and I am really hosed now.  Should have saved my work but just forgot. 

Please add an autosave feature that will completely recover my last session...all the same tabs open to all the same SQL servers with the last known/saved script in the editing window.  

How to repeat:
get a crash, loose your script and all your unsaved work

Suggested fix:
Add autosave to completely recover ALL tabs

        been changed to autosave the content and state of the SQL
