Change "save as" starting point from "untitled" to last saved name. #746
As discussed on the pd developers mailing list:
When you do a "save as", instead of starting from the name, "Untitled", Pd should start from last saved name, for example "CombFilter1" and then you can go on and change the name from there.

I did a quick test on my system (macOS 10.14) by adding a post to
The expected filename is printed and I don't see anything weird happening with saveas for both new and existing files.
EDIT: Filenames with spaces also work as expected.
This is because "Tk 8.5 on Macintosh" has hickups when the
I don't know which Tk-version is used for which Macintosh packages.
Apparently. The commit in question basically applies the same bug to all other platforms.
8.5.19 as embedded frameworks in the .app bundle (uses Cocoa)
8.4 system frameworks which probably work ok (uses Carbon)
FOLLOWUP: Overall, Tk's transition to Cocoa still has issues.
Here is a 32 bit Pd build with the savers fix and an embedded Tk 8.6.7: http://docs.danomatika.com/pdbuilds/0.51/Pd-0.50-0-saveas-fix-tk867.zip
It seems 8.6 has fixed the underlying issue as the save panel filename is set as expected. Yet another reason to move forward on macOS...
EDIT: This is most likely a simple fix that could be backported by a patch but that's really only a last resort.
