Close doesn't "know" a file is in the process of saving

Recommended Posts

In Designer, if you open a file and ctrl-s (save) then ctrl-w (close) in rapid succession, a dialog box will ask me if I'm sure I want to close without saving. But the file is still in the process saving in the background. If I tell it not to save, then try to close again, it closes without asking and the file has saved successfully. This doesn't occur with longer save processes when a progress bar appears. The progress bar seems to lock out the ctrl-w close command. The problem is with saves that are a few seconds but not long enough to bring up the progress bar.

Along the same lines: if you ctrl S and shift-ctrl-alt-S so do a quick save and export. Sometimes the save hasn't completed before the export windows comes up. After exporting, hit ctrl W and it asks if I want to save...even though I supposedly saved before exporting. This happens only with saves are quick enough not to bring up the progress bar.

Minor text edits don't trip the change flag. If I save, then make certain types of text changes like individual glyph tracking* then hit ctrl S to save, nothing happens. When I hit ctrl W it asks me if I'd like to save changes. Several times I was able to save, make a individual glyph tracking changes, try to save (nothing happened) close the file (never asked if I wanted to save). I reopened the file and the changes weren't applied.

* I don't remember the exactly kind of adjustment that was made when this has happened. Just last minute tweaks...most likely tracking. Perhaps it's related to the other bug I posted recently about mixed tracking? Perhaps adjusting the tracking on a single glyph doesn't register as a change?
