Render pulldown needs confirmation prompt.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Blender Version
Broken: example: 2.79

the top level UI to select an active renderer (blender/cycles) pulldown needs a "Warning: Changing renderers will change all rendering related nodes in scene. data may be lost. confirm/cancel"

it's too easy for novice users to destroy their materials when exploring. they should be warned.

AFAIK unless you start changing materials you don't break anything. It would be fine to have a warning but this issue kind of resolves itself with 2.8 materials being synchronized across renderers.
