Topic: How edit tabs are being saved
I don't know whether the way in which editing tabs are saved has changed recently or has been like this since this feature was first introduced, but I am not finding this as convenient as it might be.
With this new feature, I have been expecting to find, when I re-open a current project, that all the editing tabs I had open when last I closed Simply Fortran, would still be there. What I've noticed, instead, is that the editor keeps losing the tabs I had open and is reverting to the tabs I had open some time previously, making it necessary (a bit laboriously) to close all these one by one, then to open again the ones I was last working on.
I've investigated why this happens and what I've found is that the editor reverts to the tabs that were open when last I did a manual project-save. This is better than nothing but it isn't terribly helpful.
I don't know if a Windows limitation means that everything is lost, at the instant when a user clicks the 'x' Window-CLOSE icon, meaning that tabs simply CAN'T be saved unless the user actually SAVES them, but if this is the problem then could Simply Fortran possibly save all tabs every time anything was saved, not just the project?
If this is not a great idea for everyone, then perhaps it could be made an editor option whether tabs are saved when saving the project, when saving any file, or not at all.
