I had the same issue with kicad, but at the time it was more extreme, make a change save, every change... they seemed to make it a bit more stable, but it gave me the "ki cad twitch"
it hurt the first time, almost an hour's worth of work gone in a single "fu" message, I am so glad that the company I work for issued me a decent 8gig, 2.5Ghz i5 laptop with a altium designer license.
yea I have to drag a computer home, and make space for it to work on home projects, but that activity is encouraged as I am expected to learn altium, moving me up the food chain, which is cool considering I started this company as a 1 day temp job moving boxes, and now I am valued member of the engineering team. (or so I am told)
Not saying altium wont crash (well I have not had it happen on my insperion laptop, but those precisions the real engineers use like to barf at critical moments) but it saves a workspace almost too often, so worst case you only use a few min
still have "the ki cad twitch", drag a wire, save ... but getting a bit more relaxed with professional grade software
I dont want to think about if I ever lost this job ... the money is replaceable eventually, the toys are not (and we got some nice toys)
