Exporting bitmap, confusing Save button in Browse dialog

Bug #168976 reported by Orpolo
This bug affects 2 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

A potentially confusing issue:

Using the menu File/Export Bitmap, open the "Export bitmap" dialog window.

Press Browse next to the file name, it will open another window titled
"Select a filename for exporting". You will be able to choose a directory
and enter a name.

Press the SAVE button, you will return to the "Export bitmap" winwod. A
user might assume the bitmap file has been saved at this point. The path
and file name are now in the "Filename" input box, but the file was
actually not saved yet. To save it you need to press the "Export" button.

The "Save" button in the "Select a filename for exporting" window could be
set to "SELECT" to avoid this confusion.
