    Sketchbook Pro 6: Save As name problems

    I encountered one annoyance in the software that should be fixed asap. I found this out when I went to save my new project in Sketchbook Pro 6, but in the Save As bar didnt clear itself as other software does, instead keeping the name of the previous file used. This can be a problem when some one is not paying attention or forgets, and accidentally overwrites a previous file with the new. Sucky issue but it needs to be fixed.
    Ive been more careful to take the time and remember to clear the Save As bar name first, each time.

    Maybe you have an awful computer.

    It's just that you get the weirdest bugs I've never had or seen anyone else have.
    When I do a save as, it actually changes the number of the file.

    I don't believe it's a bug. It automatically enters the last file name used but with a next number added, a kind of automatic iterative save. The upside is that you won't inadvertantly overwrite a previous file.

    But the OP sounds like it's not happening and is accidentally overwriting files. That's why I said they must have an awful computer because I don't get this behavior, it adds a number to it to prevent overwriting.

    Yup, I suppose if the exact same filename appears then it's not behaving properly. I was assuming that the OP expected the Save as field to be blank, like other programs.
