5.1isp3 ISE - HDL Editor does not detect file changes, and does not prompt users to save files before closing


Keywords: save, changes, prompt, Project Navigator, HDL, editor, ISE, edits, lose, data, text

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
I open and make changes to a file in the ISE HDL Editor. If I close the file by selecting the "x" in the upper-right corner before I save, the file closes without saving and without prompting me to "Save Changes to <Open File>?", and my changes are lost.


This issue is fixed in the ISE 5.2i software, which will be available in late February, 2003.

Meanwhile, to work around the problem, be sure to manually save changes before closing or use the File -> Close option, which will open a "Save Changes to <Open File>?" dialog box.
