I have pushed changeset  http://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/ce972086bfd6, where the run action (F5) triggers dbcont when in debug mode. However, I have left the extra action and toolbar button for continue.

This feature request has still not been fulfilled in Octave 4.2.0.

Retagging release from 4.0.0-rc2 to 4.0.0.

Apparently F5 calls Debug Continue if the script is already running, or Save & Run otherwise.

In contrast, currently there are separate buttons for Debug Continue  (Play icon) and for Save & Run (Play over a sprocket).

I'd suggest having a single button that is never grayed out, corresponding to the experience of hitting F5 on the keyboard.
