I am a novice to Mathematica (using v10.2) and was wondering why:
SetOptions[SelectedNotebook, NotebookAutoSave -> True]
does not switch on
Autosave when I check in
Global Preferences -> File Options? It works in that my works is autosaved but it does not check as true under file options.
Any help would be really appreciated.
PS I found this command:
CurrentValue[FrontEnd, "NotebookAutoSave"] = True which does turn
Autosave as true and does the job but as a newbie to Mathematica I don't know why this is the case. Am I missing something here?
