If a source code, currently loaded in the PB IDE, is modified and saved with an external editor (e.g. Ultra Edit), PB pops-up a message window asking if the source should be updated. That works perfectly well.

However, one of the advantages of using an external editor is that you can run the code in PB debug and correct any observed faults (typically gadget layout faults and actions not resulting in expected outcome) in the external editor, on the fly. It's a very efficient way of working but unfortunately PB detects that changes to the source have been made and pops-up the message window during debug, when of course it cannot update the code.

So, my request is that PB only pops-up the message window when debug is not running.

This is a poor man's "edit and continue".
Even better would be full up "edit and continue" like MS Visual Studio :idea:
