You can set save preferences — such as whether to be prompted before saving a file — in the Options dialog box. By default, the Text editor saves all changed files before building an application. The following table lists the save preferences.
|Save before running tools||Saves files before you build a project or run a build utility such as NMAKE.|
|Prompt before saving files||Confirms (with a dialog box prompt) that you want to save files.|
|Automatic reload of externally modified files||Automatically reloads externally modified files that have been loaded (but not yet changed) by the editor.|
To change the save options
From the Tools menu, choose Options.
Select the Editor tab.
Select any of the Save options.
- Click OK.
