How to switch Auto Save off ?

I use your editor for developing Corona SDK games and noticed it auto saves frequently.
How do I switch that off ?
Trouble is the Corona simulator detects the file is changed and refreshes and sometimes I don't want it to, as I could be half way through something and then it starts complaining about errors.
I moved from Text Wrangler to your editor and that never auto saved.

Currently, you can't. I'll consider adding a switch to disable AutoSave. Since Versions and iCloud depend on AutoSave, these features will also be disabled if you disable AutoSave.
I'd also like to see this feature. I have my FTP client set to auto upload files to my server when saved locally, so the auto-save generates tons of unneeded, and sometimes unwanted, uploads. I really like the app other than this functionality, but until that feature gets added I'll have to go back to another editor for web development work.
