Given https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=41483, it's pretty serious that you can spend quite some time typing, then inadvertently click somewhere and get a crash, losing all work.

Ideally we should save the workbook to a temp location while typing (like Office/Word does), and upon restarting the same-name workbook, detect the autosave copy and offer to restore its content from it.

This would allow continuing work, without necessarily saving the content automatically to the main document, which may not be what I want.
