Bug Description

What do I have to tweak in scribe's code to turn off every kind of autosaving, except when I press Ctrl+S? I'm especially talking about the saving happening when just closing an unsaved document.
Background: Just broke my CMS while reading the sources. Must have accidentally pressed a key when the search-bar didn't have the focus.

Im not an expert in the Scribes code, but I would suggest you take a look at /scribes/SCRIBES/SaveSystem/AutomaticSaver.py

The following seems to work, although I have not fully tested it yet (use at your own risk). Edit /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/SCRIBES/SaveSystem/Manager.py and comment out the following lines:

from AutomaticSaver import Saver
Saver(self, editor)
from FocusOutSaver import Saver
Saver(self, editor)
from QuitSaver import Saver
Saver(self, editor)

This single feature keeps me from using Scribes - otherwise a very good editor.
