save on exit
It used to work. As usual. Past tense… If I change a file in the editor, and click the big red x to close notepad++ completely, I want it to ask me if I want to save recent changes… It doesn’t :(
Go to Settings (menu) -> Preferences -> Backup. I think you’ll see “Enable Session Snapshot and Periodic Backup” is checked. Remove the checkmark and then upon exit Notepad++ will prompt you to save the contents of the tabs that are red (changed, or never saved in the case of “new _” files).
