jdavee Posted June 28, 2011 Share Posted June 28, 2011 I found the prior discussion on the Save Dialog in this forum. Unfortunately it devolved into some bitter commentary. However, the main concept is worth revisiting. I have hundreds of images on which I'm performing very basic editing. The mandatory Save Dialog is providing me with nothing I need to change. It only causes delay in my work effort. I can understand opening the save dialog if I change formats or do a "Save As", but here I'm opening a PNG, editing it, and saving the results. No change to bit depth, format, etc. Why would a mandatory Save Dialog be needed here? I know it's only "hit enter", but after a few dozen times one does question the value of the mandate. Not to mention the efficiency of moving the mouse from the upper left "Save" button to the lower middle "OK" button on the dialog, or removing my hand from the mouse to hit "enter" then moving back to the mouse again. Or releasing my Jolt Cola with my non-mouse hand to hit "enter" . A few times is nothing. Dozens or hundreds is not. I'm not suggesting it be eliminated, only more selective when it appears, or user selectable via toggle. I will concede that there may be reasons to keep it for which I am unaware. The prior thread was not able to get to that level in the discussion. If there are such reasons, I'd certainly like to understand them better. One might be this: I noted a comment from a developer in a different thread that Paint.net will never default to something that could introduce data loss (this in regards to setting JPG as the default save format). Laudable, but I don't think that logic is applicable to my scenario. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
