Thank you for your answer.
- AutoSave option is indeed useful to avoid loosing too much work
- sydstech idea is not practical (extra step required we might forget)
It doesn't solve the root problem.
Following worked for me
1. Disable start up page - File -> Preferences -> UI settings -> Uncheck Show start up page
2. Increase java runtime memory
Hope this helps.
This happens to me too. Soapui was going to be an option for our testing but the bugs have ended that. The community version is meant to be an example of what you can get in the paid version and this has given us no confidence that it will be worth it. If a cut down version has such a major and long lasting defect then what kind of defects will there be in the more complex paid version?
I agree with your assessment. The paid version should have more features, but the free version shouldn’t freeze on a regular basis and at this point I am surprised they haven’t fixed it on such a widely used tool. I will say though that version 5.5 freezes less often, but it does still happen occasionally. No other tool I used does something like this on such a regular basis.
