Loading a file automatically preview in Windows 10

runsun
Just got a new laptop with Windows 10 pro. I installed both OpenScad 2015.03-2 and 2015.10.17 snapshot.

I am surprised to find that, in both versions, when loading a file, it is automatically previewed. This never happened when I was using Linux.

Is this an intended behavior ? (but not so in Linux)

When in Linux, in some occasions when my code goes into endless recursion or whatever reasons freezes, I could at least restart Openscad, reload the file and make corrections before preview. This is impossible if it is auto-preview when loading.

Design->Automatic Reload and Preview.

I believe it should be off by default, but keep in mind that settings are shared between OpenSCAD versions and possibly kept between uninstalls/reinstalls.

Arrhhh ... so embarrassing. Didn't even think of the  Design->Automatic Reload and Preview setting ...

Both versions are freshly installed the very first time in this laptop, though. Besides, the last time and only time I used that setting was about one year ago. So it seems unlikely that it's turned on manually.

Anyhow, even so users can just turn it off. That's good enough.

On Windows, it will be in the registry.
This is managed by Qt, see http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qsettings.html
