I would like to suggest an enhancement (unless I'm missing something and it's already there).

I would like to see the possibility of configuring an option for an "Are you sure" prompt if you have items in the "Merge list" but that are not saved to a file, and you try to exit the application without saving.

I have just had one of those occasions when I had a collection of five items from five different sources in the Merge List to be saved as one PDF (one of the best uses of reDirect IMHO).  I forgot to save the lot as a single PDF (a very "doh!!" moment!) and closed the programme.  (A few choice expletives at that point, but the important bits could be recovered so all was not lost!)

It may be too difficult to add this functionality into the software given the multitude of ways the Merge List can be created.

Perhaps it could be a universal "Are you sure you want to exit" when trying to close the application if there's anything in the Merge List.  If this prompt could be a configurable option in "Preferences" then those that don't like it don't have to have it, and those who want to be certain they won't loose their work and can put up with the "nag" can have it?

Just my 2 pence/cents worth!

Hi,

   Good suggestion, thank you. It should be fairly easy to implement, and I have added that to my "todo" list for an upcoming version.

   Cheers!

Michel

FYI: I have added the improvement in the new version. Not sure when it will be out exactly (I am adding other things), but your request has been completed.

Cheers!
