Summary0002416: need for a history menu to revert to recent projects
DescriptionI don't always save my projects.. actually I seldom do, just because I don't want lots of saved files that I won't use again.

But sometimes I am caught out because a mistake was made and I need to make another edit or render again, but I've already started a new project.

When we choose New Project, why not have the current auto-saved into a back-up folder? Then in the History menu I can see my recent projects and select one to go back to. I could open all history too.

there could be a 'clear history' option -but in settings so that its not accidentally done.

perhaps I'm just too lazy to save projects though.
Steps To Reproduce1. Render a project, then click New and don't bother to save the project.

2. start work on a new project but find a mistake in the previous render.

3. get caught out because the previous project was not saved.

4. restart from scratch on the previous project and waste a lot of time.

1. When I need to go back to a recent project I click on History

2. I select the project I need from the drop down list.

The list shows most recent at the top and up to ten projects.
But how they are named automatically I'm not sure. first clip name?

Actually, it would serve my purposes well if every project was saved to a back-up folder at rendering.

Then in the Job Queue I should be able to click on a job and select 'revert to this project'
OR, in a fourth tab in the Render dialogue, Jobs Rendered, I could have a full list of the projects I've rendered and the ability to re-open any of them.

This would be a great safety device. any one agree?
