Windows 7: Save image overwrites existing file
show user profile  del3d
Did you notice that you get an overwrite prompt if you populate the filename field with an old filename with the intention to rename it?

Here's a cheap workaround: http://connect.microsoft.com/LiveMesh/feedback/details/527004/file-save-as-asks-to-overwrite-a-file-that-it-will-not-overwrite

Does anybody have a better fix, so it acts normally i.e. as it did in XP?

Does that for me in vista too but there is a very simple workaround, select the file to put it's name into the name field then click an empty area inside the folder to deselect the file, then it will let you save without the prompt.

unfortunately win 7 is stubborn enough to display the last files properties even after clicking elsewhere. "Up a folder, back into the folder" does the trick, it's just it's totally lame :)

Or you could turn on "Increment on Save" and just press Ctrl + S whenever you want to save as a new file.

the other way is to start typing the name, then click down and select the one you want and edit that.

It's a mix between autodesk and microsofts fault.

ie. ultimately a MS problem, but it IS something adesk could fix.
