Export name same as file name by default #1964
This is a small quality of life issue, but I'd like the ability to make it so that when I go to export a project, it always uses the name of the project by default for the exported file.
Currently, if I make a new project, call it "project1.ase" and then go to export it as png, the default file name will be "project1.png."
If I then save project1.ase as project2.ase, and then go to export project2.ase as a png, the default file name will still be "project1.png." Often I don't notice, and accidentally save over the original file.
I think it'd make more sense that the default file name would be "project2.png" to avoid this issue.
Lots of people have probably gotten used to this quirk, but I use so many different programs that make the default export name the same as the current project name that it's hard to remember to check. I often don't notice the issue until I've overwritten several files, and have to go back and re-export a bunch of sprites. So, if we could have an option to decide which way file names are set when exporting, that would be awesome.
