    This is a brilliant add-in. I use it to keep a record of versions of my drafts because it saves the file but also it timestamps the file name. Now it doesn't work with the latest Libre Writer. I look forward to your return. Please update it quickly

    This works great. I'd love to be able to assign a keyboard shortcut to 'Save and Timestamp Backup' --- and in fact, I'd like to assign the normal save shortcut to this, so I'm always saving versions.

    I understand that there's a modification required to the extension to make this possible, e.g. https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/112656/set-keyboard-shortcuts-for-extensions/
