Using Audacity 32 version 3.2.5 under Windows 10 Pro, I have the “Saving Projects” and “Saving Empty Projects” preferences un-checked, but after importing, editing and exporting a file, I am constantly prompted to save the project when closing down Audacity. I do not use projects and it’s kind of annoying…Is there any way to disable this prompt?
This is unlikely to change , I believe, as it was put there as a safety net to try to help users not lose valuable data. May other apps do this, including Microsoft Word and Excel.
I, personally, never see what is wrong with just simply clicking the “no” in that dialog, or tabbing to it an hitting “enter”. In QA testing I open and exit from thousands of projects and I’ve never found that dialog overly burdensome or onerous.
Thank you. I probably exaggerated by using the word “annoying”, but it seems to me that if you are going to include a preference to avoid the prompt, it should work, no? Or am I not understanding the intent of the preference?
