BUG - Cannot 'Save As' to existing file
« on: September 05, 2007, 09:41:11 am »
In Build 816, when using the File | Save Project As function, the Save As dialog is invoked. If you browse to a current file (so that you can replace the file) you will be asked to confirm that you want to replace the file. If you answer Yes you are Brought back to the Save As dialog.

So far so good...

However, if you now click OK on the Save As dialog you receive an error message: "You cannot specify the name of an existing file. Please enter a new project name." There is only an OK button on the error message, and you are returned to the Save As dialog.

The behavior should be changed so that the user is prompted only once. If the user confirms that the target file should be replaced the Save As dialog should do so.
