PS: We are only referring to the issue that got introduced in CC 2018. As I can see there were few workflows that were existing even in older releases. Please log a separate request for it so that we all can track it better

This also happens to me since upgrade to 2018
I love that you can now save in the background but unfortunately, because of the way AI works (when saving a pdf - replacing the current open file with the pdf) it creates a a huge issue with the native file then not being saved, because it switches and saves the pdf if you tell it to do so - meaning the native ai file saving is halted - so the next time you open the ai file it has not saved - but rather the pdf has saved, so you end up having to recreate. I have lost so much time and artwork this way. its just counter productive and irritating to say the least. I cant understand why it cant just work the same across the whole suite.
