Previously restricted only to Spine Professional users, we've now enabled
Auto Key for Spine Essential users, starting in version 1.9.08+. This is a bit of a "thank you" to our users for supporting us. You guys rock!
Automatic keying can speed up your workflow because a key is set any time you make a keyable change. This also means you will never scrub the timeline and accidentally lose a pose you forgot to key. It can be very helpful, but keep it in mind while it's on so you don't insert unwanted keys.
