Attribute Manager Warning

LGreen

Could we please have a warning when closing the Attribute manager (and other element attribute windows) to ask if we mean to close without saving changes. I know it's a user issue thing, but all too frequently I hit esc out of habit to de-select something, which wipes all the work I just finished.

A little thing, but it would go a long way to helping me retain my hair.

I'll give you my view on this:

I know what I am doing and why I am doing it so I don't want such confirmation dialogs interfering with my work. So when I click the Cancel button I want the program to do as I say (any program, not only ArchiCAD) and not bother me with "are you sure you want to do this" kind of messages.
Obviously sometimes I will hit Cancel and I wish I hadn't but in most of the time I don't make this mistake and this would just slow me down.

Maybe this could be implemented in a way that these confirmation messages would appear if you enabled them in the Work Environment or something. That way we both could have it our way.
