Option to disable compile on save


I oftentimes find it impractical that Cabbage compiles the csd on save (Ctrl-s). Would it be possible to add an option to disable this?

all best

I thought there was a compile on save option? If not I can see about adding one :+1:

Thanks :slightly_smiling_face:
I did look for it in settings, but could not find it. Maybe it is in a place where I did not find it(?)

Turns out it is there, but set to 1 and with no way to change it :rofl:


I’ll add a way of changing it now :slight_smile:

I just pushed a fix for this now. You should now be able to save without compiling. I have to say, saving without compiling is a real power user move :rofl: I’m not sure how many of us would trust our Csound skills enough to work at this level!

Thanks so much for the quick update. Just an additional snag, I think: If I uncheck the “Automatically compile on save” flag in the settings, it won’t compile at all (not if I click the play button in the file tab).

Hehe, I do not think of it as a power user thing, just that sometimes I like to save after writing a few lines, even if I know the whole instrument won’t run yet.

Oh I see, now I understand how you want to use this. Leave it with me. I just thought you were looking for a way to disable compiling altogether.

This is sorted now. Even when saving on compile is disabled, the Play button will still compile the .csd and showed the instrument’s UI. :+1:

Wonderful. Thank you so much!

Is this in the current release version of Cabbage? For some reason I’m not seeing this option in the Cabbage Settings window

It’s in the current dev snapshot.
