Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1248111
gedit close of changed document, save before close saves but does not close
Last modified: 2016-07-19 13:15:23 EDT
Description of problem:
If changes have been made to a document and not yet saved, a close of gedit displays a window "Save change to document ... before closing?" with options of "Close without saving", "Cancel", or "Save". Selecting "Save" provides for saving, but then returns to edit session for document instead of closing after the save, requiring a separate close request to terminate.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. gedit a document
2. make some changes without saving
3. Request close of gedit
4. Respond "Save" to action to be done for unsaved document
gedit returns to edit session on document after saving
Document should be closed after save.
This is the way gedit used to work prior to f22 and the convention that seems to be consistently followed by all other editing apps. If your intent was to continue editing the document and you requested "close" by accident, the ony response to the "Save changes ..." query screen that is appropriate is "Cancel". The other possible responses should both close the document, either without or with saving, as requested.
