ORD changes not saved in original file after activating and deactivating a reference

In OpenRoads Designer (Version 10.09.00), when I am working in a dgn (File1) for some time and make changes, then activate a reference (File2) for example to move a text element, then deactivate File2 and resume editing in File1, any edits that I made in File1 did not save. Is the autosave function not working (it is turned on in my Settings)? A workaround for now is saving just before activating a reference file just in case, but I wonder if anyone else has experienced this issue.
