After some try/error and a look at the code, it seems not.
SF-Filename uses gtk_file_chooser_button, and acording to
gtk_file_chooser_button only supports the GtkFileChooserActions
GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN and GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SELECT_FOLDER,
not the GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SAVE
GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_OPEN Indicates open mode. The file chooser will
only let the user pick an existing file.
GTK_FILE_CHOOSER_ACTION_SAVE Indicates save mode. The file chooser will
let the user pick an existing file, or type in a new filename.
So, if someone like I wants to write a nonexistent file, and this file
has to be selected by the user, the obvious solution is to use
SF-DIRNAME to get the directory and follow a SF-STRING to get the
After that, a (string-append dirname "/" filename) in the code gives the
