Branch switching doesn't autosave projects


Recommended Posts

The following image shows a typical issue when switching branches in Visual Studio.


I had added a file to a project, but didn't check in before switching branch expecting this and other changes to be shelved.

Instead I got this dialog. I could use save and save the project as a temporary, switch back the shelved branch and copy the temporary over the project file and check in, but it is a lot of work.

I would prefer, if branch switching saved all unsaved files before doing the switch. Possibly warning me that I have changes and giving me the option to cancel the switch.
