Diff and deleted file
« on: August 18, 2022, 05:30:18 pm »
1 Copy file.txt file2.txt
2 echo THIS >> file2.txt
3 VS.exe file.txt file2.txt
4 In Slick, diff the two files.

5 From outside slick, delete File2.txt
6 Go back to slick.

7 Slick prompts to Save Deleted Files
8 Click Close Selected.
9 Slick prompts
SlickEdit Pro
You cannot close this file because it is being diffed.

Now, everytime I try to activate the diff window I get the prompt to save deleted files, then complaining that I cannot close files being diffed.
After closing Diff, the deleted file is still a buffer in Slickedit, but it doesn't show as modified - typically files that have been deleted from disk show as modified in slickedit.

I'm going to be looking into this.  The solution is probably not to allow closing the file if it is being diffed.
