When I publish my edge files sometimes it makes me resave the document. For example, after I've select a directory to publish my file I hit the publish button then back in my edge file sometimes i see an asterisk sometimes i don't. When I do see it i click save. Am i doing something wrong? I noticed that if i run the page a few times, go to publish settings and click save a few times then hit publish the asterisk goes away. Also, is there any harm in not publishing the edge file? I could simply but all the files on the server and everything works fine :/
You are not doing anything wrong, its simply the nature of the application. When you apply the Publish it saves a setting to the project configuration and recognizes that a 'change' has taken place. You may not have made any alterations within the project, but the Publish option is recognized as a change - hence the asterisk.
No harm in not resorting to the Publish version, I often resort to the 'non-published' files.
Cool. Thanks, D!
