Bug Description

Deleting a file which is open in Scratch makes Scratch ask if the file should be updated, and if updating is accepted, the file is written back to disk. It's just me or something is wrong here?
(yeah, I know, I do lots of stupid things with open files)

Maybe if scratch opens a file and its deleted by an external source, saving will open the save as dialog?

Showing the save as dialog is not too obvious

I think maybe what Harvey was trying to say is that when you delete a file, the "Save As" icon is shown in the toolbar (as if it's a new file). And we just treat it as a New file.

Which I think isn't a terrible idea.

I suggest to show a dialog saying something like "This file was deleted, do you want to recreate it?"

Mario, what if you're not focusing the tab that has the deleted item? Maybe it should be an infobar?

There could be an infobar after focusing the tab...

Yea that sounds fine to me :)

Oh I'm just realized that there is a warning dialog in the case a file was deleted but it wasn't shown for a little bug. So this bug is fixed for the moment. I don't want to do it for now but for Scratch 1.2 I will need to create a better InfoBar system because, if I use the current one to fix this bug, there could be problems when showing a warning message in the InfoBar. For now it is ok so
