I think once you realize that your script is being saved automatically, it’s easier to work around it, yet still a bit annoying. It’s not very handy for trial and error type coding, which due to the fact that I’m a toolmaker, not a programmer, is pretty much how it goes for me on every project. Well, maybe it’s not quite that bad, but there are times when I want to experiment with an idea, and the only time I really want to save it is if it is successful.
I could live with it the way it is, but the constant redirection of the Python editor to the last opened file is about to make me blow a gasket! Can we please get that fixed!! If I open a file using a script, I certainly don’t want the editor to be looking at that location next time I open a script. I’m sure most people keep their projects in one location, not scattered all over the place. The editor should always open to the same place. Maybe it could be a set path in the options?
Open a Python script from a specific location. Now open a Rhino file. Now go back and open another script. See how the editor is looking at the location the Rhino file was opened from? That’s what I’m talking about, that’s just wrong!
