New empty document in PrimalScript 2014

Post by clum09 » Fri Feb 06, 2015 6:52 am


I noticed the feature changed in PrimalScript 2014.

When I start a new document from the top left corner of PrimalScript 2014 and I write some code on the new document and click on the Run button, I am prompted to save the current document to a script file before I can execute the script even if my default script language was set to Microsoft Windows PowerShell.

Is this the behavior I should experience in PrimalScript 2014?

I know that in PrimalScript 2012, I do not have to save the current document to a script file before I can execute the code on the new document.

It has to save the script in order to submit the file to the PowerShell engine. Otherwise the changes you have made would not be executed.

In 2012 it simply saved the file and now it correctly prompts you, which it the standard behavior for editors.
