Double-click on a file in the 'Save As' dialog should trigger save, as in the 'Open' dialog a double-click triggers open. Obviously after this the 'Overwrite?' confirmation dialog will be presented.
This change would speed up my workflow considerably. Also, this is the default behavior on all of the previous well-known DE's that I used.

Please explain your workflow where you frequently save files to a different, but already existing name.

Not sure if I understand correctly, but that's not what I meant. The workflow I mean: replacing a file with a new file, using the same name.
1) Double-click (or otherwise select) existing file (selects the file).
2) Click 'Save'.
3) Click 'Overwrite' in the next dialog.
4) New file replaces old file.
1) Double-click existing file (selects the file and triggers 'Save').
2) Click 'Overwrite' in the next dialog.
3) New file replaces old file.
Like mentioned: this would be consistent with behavior of double-click in the 'Open' dialog.
To illustrate: I need to serially download files and quickly review those. There is no reason to keep the file after review. The files are downloaded with the same name and I don't want more than 1 file to accumulate. In the current situation I need to manually remove the file after review, or replace the current file with the new file. I'm opting for the latter b/c this saves me from switching to a terminal or dolphin. The suggested change would further speed up this workflow.
I hope this clarifies. Thanks for looking into this.
Thanks for the clarification. Merging with an older request.
