No I get that. What i want is the following use case:
1) My files has > 2 merge conflicts, with potentially complicated resolution
2) I want to save so i don't lose my work if i mess up. Also i'm in the habit of saving frequently in sublime text so it's hard to avoid hitting my save hotkey
3) Continue resolving
4) Exit resolution
currently if i ever do 2, i get shot out to the stage screen. If i try to continue resolving conflicts in the file it reverts all the changes i made previously.
