when you close the last window processing quits. double clicking it to restart it will open a new
blank sketch. adding code to that sketch and pressing save will open the save-as dialog. since
it's a blank new sketch, can't it just be saved into the sketchbook as with older releases?

not sure where this is a bug. the release notes describe that we've changed
to a standard new/open/close/save model. that means untitled documents
(that default to being saved in the sketchbook folder) and the rest, the
same as you'd get in a text editor or whatever.

yes it is standard behaviour and not a bug ... maybe i have to just get used to it.

i just liked the fast copy-paste-save or write-run-save cycle .. not forcing me to think about a
name and things. more like a true sketchbook: open, draw, close.

.. on the other hand this tends to clutter my sketchbook with millions of sketch_** files. as i
said, have to get used to it i guess.

right, i think it's bad to lose it, but i think as the project evolved,
more people were confused by the sketchbook model than were helped by it
(where the f-- are my files!?) so we decided to make the switch.
