No warning when quitting with changes

I don't know if this is new or not, but B24 will quit a file that has changes to it with no warning. I opened my test file, typed a new sentence, then Ctrl-W'd out. It exited without warning me that there were changes to the file. I looked for a setting in Preferences and searched the menu for "Chan" and "Save" but didn't see anything.

An editor should never exit a file that's been touched without warning the user.

    And sorry, meant to say, it's late, so I didn't test the jumping fix, I'll do that tomorrow.

    You keep saying "an app should never...", but once again, this is
    standard (in fact, enforced by macOS) behavior if you have Auto Save
    turned on. Which means, as the name implies, that the file is simply
    saved automatically.

    Turn off the preference if you don't like it (I don't use it), but it
    has been standard macOS behavior since Lion.
