I think it is time to either make this a preference, with the ability to save in Debugging mode turned off by default, or at least make it more difficult to accidentally saving in Debugging mode (multiple warning dialogs).
This feature has always been cool, but I haven’t used it in a long time. I mostly debug droplets by dropping files directly in the script window with debugging on. Now with Mojave changes, other uses of it—such as folder actions debugging—are no longer practical.
This request is not just because more users in the forum are saving in debugging mode accidentally—it has happened to me as well. At minimum, I’d like a warning alert whenever I close script which is presently saved with debugging on. Hmm…maybe this is already an extended preference I have missed? Regardless, thanks for listening.
