Render an error in generated content on closing the inspector
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points

Description

Currently, if an extension inspector is closed while there is an error in the generated content, the last valid rendering remains, with no visible prompt that there is an error until after the page is saved. The only reason for not rendering an error while the inspector is open is to prevent the inspector from jumping around. So errors should be rendered once the inspector is closed.
