Wrong. Scribus is built around its own file format and isn't suited
for editing PDF which is its primary target file format. You don't
open and save a PDF back in Scribus.

file => open recent   =>
open document.sla
save document .sla
save as document-2.sla
export document.sla =>
save as image, pdf, etc....
With scribus you can only work with .sla

And that proves your point exactly how? :)

It just shows that scribus menus respect the "standard" : easy to use and not complicated and confused like in Gimp. Unlike scribus, you can edit all kinds of picture files with Gimp. No reason to create special dialog boxes to work with a particular file type (.xcf), except for beginners or people stunned... It slows down work for the others. I know I am repeating myself.....

Wrong. Ardour is built around the concept of sessions. It can mix
audio and MIDI files, but it doesn't open them to edit and save back.

You can "save" or "save as" session  without any complication

Oh dear. Oh deary, deary me. You never actually used Ardour, did you?
You just opened it for the first time in your life and didn't go
beyond the File menu. That explains a lot.

First of all, a session in Ardour equals to XCF in GIMP. So when you
say that you can "save" and "save as" a session in Ardour, you are
basically supporting my point that Ardour behaves like GIMP 2.8, with
save and export decoupled.

Secondly, "save as" in Ardour is a very special thing that works
unlike anything out there. It doesn't "save as" like other apps, into
a new file that you specify. Instead it's kinda more like saving a

you can "save as" under an other name, it's very important

The same goes for pretty much every nonlinear video editor: you don't
open and save stuff back, you export it. Saving works only for an
internal file format.

Before I wrote my last message, I tested sofwares because I never talk about
what I do not know.

You've just proved that you didn't :)

I dont want to prove anything. People can test themselves softwares I mentionned above and compare, *mainly* with other image editors like Krita, Showfoto or Libreoffice Draw....
