--- Comment #2 from Nate Graham <> ---
I was actually toying with this idea after my non-technical mother had the same
problem. However, this is really a job for the file manager, not the save
dialog, because there are many circumstances when you might want to do this
without saving files. For example, a teacher making a new copy of a directory
containing last year's lesson plan; should all the files be blindly duplicated,
symlinked, hardlinked, or something else?. What would be really cool is if the
files were hardlinked, but changing one would trigger a dialog asking whether
you wanted to change all copies of the file, or just this one. Choosing the
latter option would break the link and make a new un-linked file with the

So I very much like the idea, but we would need to put a great deal of design
work into it if it were ever to be implemented, and it would be in Dolphin, not
the save dialog.
