I just threw together a dyn that grabs a specific portion of a directory’s contents’ filenames into a list of strings. Long story short, I fed that input into the “SendToClipboard” node and Dynamo Core crashed on me. Before I saved, and that got me thinking.
What about a feature that you can toggle on/off on in the settings, that will force you to save your work. It would allow you to “Run” an unsaved.new dyn a user-specified number of times, before it asks you to save and name the current file.
For instance, toggle “SavedYourLife” option ON, with a set value of 10.
You open a new dyn, end up clicking RUN/F5 9 times, and on the tenth time a save dialog pops up (before the script actually runs) and you can save the dyn file or cancel. Continuing to test your luck with avoiding the impending/growing frustration of a lost dyn file.
“What if you leave the default Run mode in “Automatic”?” You ask?
Well then it would count down the same X value (that you set in the settings) in minutes.
So if X was set to 10 then it would wait 10 minutes before the save dialog appears for you.
As I said, it was a thought that occured to me earlier and I was looking to get some feedback on this theoretical hair-saver.
