Quitting without saving
There are several times where I want to leave a score that I made changes to. Right now, after I leave without saving, sometimes intentionally and sometimes not, the next time I pull up the score it asks me if I want to keep the changes or discard them. I'm sure you're aware of this.
Let's say, for example, I left a score without saving the changes. I didn't come back to the score for a month. I pull up the score again. "You made changes to this score at March 2, 7:51 pm that didn't get saved to the cloud." followed by "Discard changes/Save changes."
It's been a whole month. How do I know what changes I made? Was a whole twenty bars? Just a simple change in the zoom level? It'd be nice if there was some way to view what changes you made, THEN decide whether or not you want to save/delete them
Secondly, sometimes I make changes to a score and don't want it to be saved, or I don't want it to be reposted. Maybe next to the save button could be a "save without reposting" option, or pressing shift while clicking save, it doesn't repost. Another convenient option would be a "exit without saving" button, followed by an "Are you sure? The changes you made will be erased forever" prompt.
Lastly, if I say I want my changes discarded, I want them discarded. I'm not sure if this is just a bug, or it's something that's supposed to happen, but right now, if I leave a score without saving changes, go back and discard/delete the changes, then exit AGAIN to make sure they're gone, the score gives me the same prompt (do you want to save/discard changes).
Thank you! If I need to clear anything up, let me know.
One thing - if you aren't sure if you want the changes you made a month ago saved or not, just save them. Then, take a look at it. If you decide that you don't the changes you made, easy enough to go back to the previous version and make that the current one. If you want to save without reposting, copy the whole score, then save the copy without making it public. The thing is, Noteflight never wants you to lose something you might have wanted to keep. It's always easier - and better - to delete something you don't want than it is to try to recover something you DID want it if it's gone for good.
