Hi i am grateful for Your hard work over GIMP, but recent change is more than inconvenient !
Restricting saving as JPG or other formats to export option only isn't good...
You could have prep long ago option for setting up a default save format instead of forcing on everyone solution for rookies.
Instead of simplifying work You made it more frustrating.
I make pictures in JPG for website and i have to write every time ".jpg" at the end to save file as JPG.
If i work with JPG file it is really irritating that i can't simply "save" it.
Guess how much more annoying it gets when i have 50-100 of them to "save" in JPG ?!
Another thing allow to set default save location. In windows i could have at least set it up in shortcut but in Linux no option !
Some good word for last i am really happy about merging main window and tool panels plus ability to hide them.
Please FIX "saving" options, it is really sad to see GIMP doing huge step backward.
