save as > pre-selection of filename removes my current copy-buffer
Problem: Select a text (=> text is in your copy buffer)
Do a "save as" in an application: the file name is pre-selected so I can overwrite quickly.
This can be handy but for me it is very annoying as I am loosing my previous copied text.
I bump into this quite often when I open a just downloaded pdf with a unmeaning-full name. Select the title of the article. Hit 'save as' Then I like to paste the title as file name. This is impossible as I just lost my previously selected text as GTK just selected the 'old' name of the current file. Also when in the file save window I cannot return back to re-select the title. So now I have to select the title. paste it into an editor or something from a different application. Hit save as. delete the pre-selection. (re) select the just pasted text. paste the desired filename. hit save. This is very tedious and way to much work for such a simple task.
Possible solution perhaps(?) Use the already copied buffer text directly as filename instead of using the 'old' filename. Or delete the pre-selected 'old' filename so that it is not selected.
