This is a familiar workflow  for me. I do this very often. Exporting a
view of the master is a task for the future nondestructive editing. It
should not require a creation of a new document. Some day it probably
wont. And you will be ble to create several export graphs for your
image too... This export/save separation is just one step on this way.
We wont get to fully nondestructive editing today, but we will, some
day. And unless you do not wish us to release anything for a next
decade or two untill we get there, the interim inconvenience needs to
just be lived with...
