Prompt to save modified files on tab close -- bad default

darkangel's profile image darkangel posted 6 years ago in General Permalink

I noticed semi-recently that when I closed tabs (or the application) that it wasn't asking me to save the contents of the query tabs.

It seems like this is off by default, which I think is a very bad idea. If you accidentally close HeidiSQL, you can lose a lot of unsaved work.

Please enable this by default.

No, the default is "on" here. You must have disabled the checkbox in the dialog "Keep asking this question". You can activate prompts again in Tools > Preferences > SQL > "Prompt to save modified files..."

Hmm, maybe I did it accidentally.

Thanks for your reply, and for the software. :-)
