[Gimp-user] HATE the new save vs. export behavior

I sell LibreOffice, by pointing out that not only can it OPEN almost everything, including DOCX and old

everyone-- though with a "you will lose formatting" warning (that can be disabled).

Saving to JPEG from Gimp is more like exporting to PDF from OO (that, 
incidentally, OO calls "export").

I would say it is more like saving to RTF, which is a "save" option, though a crappy one.  (JPEG and RTF are 
both low-quality editable formats which lose data/formatting, compared to the native XCF and ODT formats).  
Exporting to PDF is converting from an editable format to an essentially non-editable container format, and 
IS an Export--Incidentally, one printer in my area prefers even image files to be exported to 
PDF...*sigh*...because Windows prints it directly instead of shoving it through that crappy photo printing
