    Foundation auto-saves, so you don't have to.

    I'm thinking that when the dogear is folded and green, your project has been saved. You can click on the unfolded page and that will manually save for you.

    Good metaphor!

    So once the document autosaves, and then you start writing again, what happens to the corner? Does it return to grey until it next autosaves?

    Is there any other feedback that it is being saved? I wonder if this is not verbose enough. If I am writing something, especially if it is long, I want to feel really confident that I won't lose it if i accidentally close a tab or something.

    @Henry Modisett: I'm thinking of having some sort of toast for when you're scrolled down and the dogear is off the page.

    I think confidence is really important, but to an extent that confidence is something we build when we can play with parameters like autosave interval. If we build a toast or overlay message, it can't get too annoying or distracting.

    Also, keep in mind that you can still manually save!

    Really clever. The only concern I could see is that dogearing is associated with bookmarking, which I guess is similar to saving but not quite.

    @Justin Edmund I think you are definitely reaching a good solution. Looking forward to seeing it.

    This animation still doesn't really communicate the process of saving. A fixed position text label affordance (if user scrolls) affordance to indicate state change (Save, Saving, Saved) would go a long way. I imagine located to the immediate left of the fold corner state.
