Hi James,

I finally realized I could make a split view and switch to a different tab that way, but not before I closed Textadept and lost my changes because it asks if I want to close without saving changes, but I didn't have the option to save, just cancel. Can you add the option to save when there's a buffer without saved changes?

Unfortunately, initialization errors cannot be recovered from. Even if I added such an option, there is no guarantee that a save would happen because Textadept is in an unstable state.

You can send them to me. Random crash reports do not help much, but ones with steps how to induce the crash help immensely. Keep in mind that badly behaving modules (such as that markdown module) may induce crashes that I may not be able to fix.
