Saving Edit With files

I've just tried using the "edit with" option for a file, and whilst it comes up fine in notepad, when I save it it isn't saved back in CD. Using 2.05, am I missing a step somewhere?

Does Notepad's titlebar show a filename similiar to PTMFG0000000026.txt while editing?

Do you get dialog box similar to this?

The text in the
c:\docum~1\davidb~1\locals~1\Temp\CityDeskExternal_1496\PTMFG0000000026.txt file
has changed.

If you close without saving, do you want to save the changes?
                [Yes] [No] [Cancel]

I am using CityDesk 2.0.5Beta and see changes in .txt and .html files when saving from the toolbar, the File pull-down menu and closing the window and choosing Yes.

Yes, I get Notepad opening with similar details to what you mention.

However, when closing NotePad there is *NO* detection of the changed file status.

Running Win2K SP3, and CD 2.0.5.
