Feature request #6648

Updated by Radim Blazek about 6 years ago

Vector/raster save as dialog only warns user about file existence of file with 'base' extension. For example, if foo.shp was selected and it does not exist but foo.dbf exists, then user is not warned and foo.dbf is silently overwritten.

At this moment it cannot be easily fixed (where warning is generated) because QFileDialog does not support such feature (test multiple extensions for existence).

Another issue is, that if file name is typed by hand, user is not warned at all. I am not sure if it is desired or not, maybe power users typing files names don't need to be warned?
