Re: [Gimp-developer] Save/export, option to change dialog

I think it might be helpful if the gimp Save dialogue had a button to

But I expect few if any of the developers are still reading this thread.

I think that the idea of another button was rejected early on.

However, hopefully some devs are still reading: What if the file dialog was modified into a tabbed interface instead, so that it hitting <Ctrl>+S brought up:

||  Save XCF Project ... ||    Export to ...   |
||                       ||____________________+
||- - - - - - - - - - - - -====================|
||                                             |

And hitting <Ctrl>+E brought up:

|   Save XCF Project ... ||    Export to ...  ||
|________________________||                   ||
|========================--- - - - - - - - - -||

|                                             ||

One big downside of the current implementation is that if I choose the wrong "save" option I usually don't realize it until I've already navigated away and hitting <Cancel> forces me to navigate again. Aside from that issue, the current philosophy is better and I think this might help solve both complaints.

There may be other ways to combine the two functions into a single dialog while still making it abundantly clear that there is a distinction; this is just one idea.
