Hello, i made a mistake. When you try to open a function that doesn’t exist, it shows a message asking if I want to create it. I pressed yes and « do not show msg again »… Now it creates empty files and it’s a problem. I would like to find the option to cancel this, not to create many empty files all the time while debugging haha. Thank you !!

I've made this mistake many times. Fortunately, the fix is easy.
1. Press the "Preferences" button in the "Environment" section of the MATLAB Toolstrip
2. In the tree on the left of the Preferences dialog, select "MATLAB" -> "General" -> "Confirmation Dialogs":
3. On the right, check the box next to "Prompt when editing files that do not exist."
