I know it's been said (by me) before in other types of posts, but I don't see it here or fixed yet, but it would be nice if when you go to quit Layout that rather than just asking if you are sure you want to quit, that it asks if you want to save all objects as well. Or another option is to be able to just turn this on in the options panel that with every scene save it also saves all objects associated with the scene.
I won't mention (out of embarrasment) how many hours of texture manipulation I wasted in LW because I forgot to do the secondary step of "Saving all objects" and just saved the scene itself.
I would imagine that every newcomer to LW from another 3D app that isn't divided into 2 separate pieces has run into this same problem until they trained themselves to manually do it themselves.

I second that. It's a complete workflow no brainer to couple object saving with scene saves. This can't be that hard to implement.

I use that one. But it's only if you actually hit "save". I think he is looking for if you close layout, it will only ask to save the scene.

I don't have this script, but I swear LW 8.3 has asked me SOMETIMES if I want to save the scene and all objects before I quit. It's kind of been freaking me out since it isn't consistant. Has anyone else experienced this?

I just downloaded and installed the save plugin from here (http://www.thomas4d.com/html/free_3d_tools.html) but I don't see a new button for it being added to the menu. Help!

same for me, LW ask if I want to save all objects… sometimes… I mean, it doesn't look very predictable !

something I don't like about this "smart" saving, is the "ALL" object ! I would prefer LW to save only the modified ones…
