Issue 603: Make project autosave optional
2 people starred this issue and may be notified of changes. Back to list
Reported by, Dec 22, 2009
What steps will reproduce the problem? a project
2.close a project
3.observe that the project has been saved

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
opening a file does not mean i intend to edit the file, and it certainly
does not mean i want the file automatically edited or save or touched at
all automatically. I would expect that I could disable the project
autosave, globally. Not only is this a usability issue, but the current
implementaion throws an exception when you close a project that is managed
by a source control system and the project is not checked out, which
usually means it's read only.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
3.1 build 397

Please provide any additional information below.

Good point.

1. We should fix the implementation so it doesn't crash if the file cannot be written.

2. We should provide an option to disable auto-save.

An option to enable/disable AutoSave on Shutdown should appear as of build 3.3.343
Defaults to disabled (which I think is the more sensible option, albeit a breaking change).

The problem is that user options (filters specifically) are tangled up with the project options.

I think the solution is either to move the filters to the user options file (which shouldn't be source controlled), or better yet to provide both user & project level filters.
