Description Derk-Jan Hartman 2012-07-18 10:34:07 UTC
If you get an warning that the filename is already in use, it should give you more guidance towards 'solving' that situation.

"Please choose a different filename, because this filename is already in use:" Move cursor to filename textfield.
Comment 1 Nischay Nahata 2013-03-08 18:22:46 UTC

I don't think moving the cursor automatically is a good idea. Automatic stuff confuses many users (mostly novice ones)
Comment 2 Nemo 2013-03-08 19:28:22 UTC
Further nitpicking: it's not really the filename, because you don't have to enter the extension, right?
Maybe: "Please choose a different name, because it's already used by another file".
Comment 3 Nischay Nahata 2013-03-09 05:32:37 UTC
I think it should be "Please choose a different title, because this title is already used by another file"

This would conform to the label under which this error shows.
