    Problem

     

    It is far too easy to accidentally leave unsaved changes to themes lying around in various layouts.

    And because there is no information available as to WHAT has changed it is too dangerous to save theme changes if discovered later, as you may  overwrite OTHER changes already saved elsewhere.

    And in fact - in the majority of cases - there is no NEED to EVER NOT save the changes.

     

    Idea

     

    Add a "Save theme changes automatically" to the layout setup dialog:

     

    SaveThemeChangesAutomatically.png

    When checked any changes to the theme in the layout should be automatically saved to the theme.

     

    And, of course, if a developer does NOT want to save the changes to a theme, (s)he can reset the them via the little red triangle in the Inspector before exiting the layout.
