FS#742 - Autosave weird behavior ...

QCAD 3.0.5

Start QCAD → Went to the Menu → File → Open recent → choose a Drawing out of the List → click to open this existing drawing.
Message windows appears: QCAD found an Autosave drawing .... will you open it? I choose NO!!!
I go back to the Menu → File → Open recent → will choose the same Drawing .... but it is not anymore listed!!!
Ok - I’m not lazy ...
... back to the Menu → File → Open → find the original file on my Hard drive → click to open it and get the Warning Message:
“Can not open the File ...... Please check your access rights bla bla bla....”

Question: In this case I’m only able to open the bak file and “Save as” under the old name to get my starting situation back ...?
Just because I said “NO” to load the Backup File in first place ... ? :-(

This seems to be correct behavior, yes. Answering the recovery question with 'no' means that that QCAD will try to load the selected file (not the autosave file). The autosave file is backed up for exactly that reason that you might change your mind after trying to load the selected file.
