Auto Save / Revisions = Doesn't Seem "Right"



New Member
A New WP "Feature" or Elementor "Feature"??

I am running in circles with this one. Have post my question multiple forums and not hit the nail yet.
I have a 100% new site, (rebuilding it). New hosting package, new WP install (5.6),no db rolled from the previous db, a FEW "new-to-me" plugins, etc. I am LITERALLY starting my site over from scratch.

My concern.
Revisions are driving me nuts! I did not have this problem on my old site using the previous version of WP. The WP forums say it is a Elementor issue. (I was using Elementor on my old site too, and this was not happening there).

I create a page, save, exit back to "all pages", chose that same page, and i get a auto save notice at the top of the editor (using Elementor). When i click "Edit With Elementor" the page loads and i get a pop up at the bottom left telling me about revisions. The page SOMETIMES has my most recent work on it, and other times my most recent work is a few revisions back. I understand that WP saves revisions every sixty seconds.

Steps Tried:
> Deactivate all plugins except Elementor. Clear Cache.
> Test. Same thing.
> Changed cache setting around in WP, clear, test, same thing. Set back to original setting.
> Host cleared the server cache. Same thing.
> Host has turned off server cache to eliminate that from my testing.
> I have switched from using FireFox to Chrome. Same results. Back to FireFox now.

Is this revision thing something NEW in WP 5.6, or is it in Elementor, and how can i stop this mess? It's a chore to need to check the timestamps in the revision list every time and try to remember how long ago i was on THIS page ver one of the OTHER pages.

Thanks ahead of time all! It's getting frustrating.
