Changing settings and using a blank template patch

I am hoping someone could offer some knowledge that I have been unable to locate using our friend Google. Is it possible to turn off autosave? I have tried changing “autosavePeriod” in the settings-v1.json file to zero but it doesn’t seem to stick. I am also curious about having a blank template loaded each time. I have recently run into several occasions where a patch has crashed VCV Rack and, because the file was autosaved, I could not get it to load again. In all cases I have been able to determine the cause of the crash but have, on a few occasions, had to recreate the patch from scratch.

Are you editing settings.json while Rack is open? You need to close Rack before editing this file.

To save a template patch, choose File > Save template. You can delete all modules from your patch and save it as the template patch.

Ahhh. Thanks. I was editing while rack was open. Sometimes it’s the simple stuff that gets you.
