Thanks. Perhaps we could divide the request into several pieces. For example, changes to the 'Make module' could be one problem piece to solve and changes to checkbox options in the tabs could be another problem piece. I would regard it as a useful advance if you could solve either of those problem pieces.

Hold on. I often make incremental adjustments to "Find & Replace" while processing a list of articles, and don't want to save new settings until they are tested on a few articles, so I would not have 'auto-save' turned on in that situation. Before exiting AWB or before loading a new settings file, I would like to be reminded that I have unsaved "Find & Replace" changes to the current settings file. This part should not be difficult to implement, especially if the request for "Unwanted saving of Find & Replace changes" is taken care of by dropping the "Done" button and adding "Apply" and "Cancel" buttons. If the "Apply" button is pressed, just make a note that the settings file has changed and may need to be saved on exit; the heavy operation of comparing settings against saved ones would not be necessary. A similar technique could be used to mark changes to skip options, etc., and all the checks would not have to be added at once.
