FEATURE REQUEST: Intelligent Save Icon on Toolbar

Please can you make the Save icon on the toolbar show two states - "there are unsaved changes" and "no unsaved changes"

During development I hit the keyboard shortcut to save and would like some visual feedback this has taken place. Occasionally I hit the wrong keys or the window doesn't have focus and the code changes don't get saved and I waste time running the old version of the code. Having the toolbar icon change colour to indicate whether the current document is saved would solve this problem.

Hello Ben,

In fact, with PyCharm you shouldn't need to worry about saving your changes

at all - PyCharm does this automatically for you at relevant times (for example,

when you switch applications or run an external process).

If you really can't live without seeing your unsaved changes, you can enable

an option in Settings | Editor | Editor Tabs to mark modified tabs with an

asterisk.
