While it is comforting to see that my entry is being autosaved, the manner in which that is being communicated to me is very distracting. Especially since it changes the size of the button and alignment of other buttons in the area. I'd recommend having it be a small bit of very light text, with minimal movement or animation. It could even be a text string that says when the entry was last autosaved.
This was somewhat anxiety inducing for me, so my workaround has been to hit enter a bunch of times so that the autosave animation is below the fold.
We pushed an update live a couple weeks ago to make the autosave more subtle in the web app.
Let me know if you think it is still do distracting!
Thanks Omead! Was thinking the same thing. We have made the button stop resizing but for now kept the animation this update will roll out within the week with the next update. Let us know if its still too distracting after the update goes live and we will find another solution!
