For me, "export" word is useless and confusing. Export to what? To
jpeg, png, xcf, tiff ? It depends on the file where you start.
You could start with a jpeg and want to export to .xcf, or the
the 'save and export' behaviour as been discussed at the mailing lists
during the last months very widely and thoroughly. There's also an
article about it at
Please be so kind and check them first. Judging from the amount of
postings to only this one topic I guess all your questions and
concerns are answered there.
The problem is not "to understand" ! All I know, all I see, is that
the change "save" and "save as" in Gimp-2.8 complicates my life too.
I use working method with Gimp-2.6 that allows me to save much time and
sweat. Unfortunately this method is impossible with Gimp-2.8, so,
logically, I no longer use Gimp-2.8. This is final unless Gimp-2.6
facilities "save" and "save as" are available again.
I wish this was a problem of adaptation, it would have been simpler.
This is not the case.
Another problem in 2.8:
When you open a file like bird.jpeg, the file name "bird.jpeg" doesnt
appear in the title bar. I only see "bird imported".......
It is very important to see in the window which file type you edit.
