Hi Anne,

You turn the Notify watchers checkbox on and off on a page, not globally.  So it's b, the last lime you edited that exact page. 

You can test this yourself by creating and saving a new page.  Then turn Notify watchers off on an existing page.  When you edit the new page you just created, Notify watchers will still be turned on.

But on the same new page, though i Turn off the Notify watchers and save the page, again in edit mode, still the Notify watchers is checked.  I use conf v5.10.8. 

So is this an issue or i understood it wrongly?

Hey , This is working fine as expected. I observed that one of my third party plugin is causing the issue.
