Is there a way to save all layer edits at once (preferably with a shortcut)?

This would be very handy to easily save and protect layer edits routinely in the event of a crash.

I often find QGIS crashing (for various reasons) and it's heartbreaking when all my layer edits were not saved.

Under the Digitizing Toolbar, there is an option to save edits for all layers.

enter image description here

It will be active once you edit a feature or features of any layer loaded in the project.

If the Digitizing Toolbar is not shown in the project, you can activate it from View → Toolbars → Digitizing Toolbar, or easier, right-click any place in the Toolbars under the Menu Toolbar and select the Digitizing Toolbar.
