  • BC no longer prompting to "Save changes to session

    All of a sudden BC is no longer prompting to "Save changes to session?" when I exit from the application after altering a session. I cannot seem to find a place where this could have been switched off. Any ideas?

    Is your session locked? If you lock a session in the session manager, BC will no longer prompt you to save changes when you close BC or switch to another session.

      No they are not locked.

        Are you changing the default <untitled> session? BC will only prompt to save changes if you change settings after loading a saved session.

          I am experiencing a similar problem, but it does not occur on exitting BC2.

          I can call up a named session and alter it by excluding a directory. If I exit (hitting the X on the system menu, using ALT-F4, or selecting the menu sequence Session -> Exit) I am asked if I want to "Save changes to session?" followed by the session name.

          But, if I load the same session, modify it, then load another session (Menu items Session -> Session Manager then select a saved session), I don't get prompted to save my changes to the modified session, thus losing the changes.

          I seem to remember getting asked in the past about saving the changes.

          Using BC2 2.3.1 (build 231)

            These are prevously saved (and used repeatedly) sessions. This feature was working a week or two ago but now it's not prompting.

              When BC detects a session has changed, it adds a * to the end of the session name in the window title. Do you see a * in the name before you switch sessions but don't get a save prompt?

              BC won't prompt to save display filter (all, mismatches, etc) or column changes to sessions. They are saved automatically.

              What are the exact changes that you make to a session that result in no save prompt?

                That must be it. I went back and tested this and sure enough when I changed the file viewer display, it didn't mark it as a change. This is strange because I thought for sure it used to do this. I figured that any change in a session (including the type of display) would indicate a change. Anyways...it is working as you have describe. Thanks!

                  Chris, I am still not prompted to save a (named) session if I change it before activating another session. I normally save my sessions manually, but sometimes forget.

                  I can launch BC2, select a named session. From the folder view, I can right click on a file, select <font color="blue">Exclude</font>, hit <font color="blue">OK</font> from the resulting popup. The window title is updated to include an asterisk following the session name.

                  At this point, I can activate another session, using the menu sequence <font color="blue">Session</font> -> <font color="blue">Session Manager</font> and selecting another saved named session. When I do this, the new session is activated without asking to save the previous session's changes.

                    Hi Ernie,

                    Thanks for pointing this out. Before I was changing sessions using the Session: toolbar. Using the toolbar it does prompt for a save, but opening another session using the Session|Session Manager doesn't prompt for a save and it should. I'll add it to our bug list and we'll try to get it fixed for our 2.4 release.

                      Ah!

                      I've been using the keyboard/shortcuts more often now. I know a while back I was always using the mouse/toolbar. That's why the behavior changed.

                      Thanks for confirming and handling.
