|Summary||0008579: Save as of a modified session yields a confusing dialog|
|Description||When a session is modified and I select Session > Save As..., a dialog appears with a confusing text.|
"Any changes made this time will be lost unless you save it."
It seems to imply that things will go wrong horribly unless I save the session first. Saving will affect the current saved state of the session, and that is what I want to avoid by using Save As... .
|Steps To Reproduce||Create a session, modify something, and then Session > Save As...|
|Tags||No tags attached.|

You really want to save a snapshot of the current session, and not save the whole session under a different name in a different place. Save-as does the latter.
In this particular case I want to make a new, distinct copy of the project, under a different name and location, to be used for an other, separate, project. To the best of my knowledge that is what "Save As..." is for.
Also, for all applications that I know "Save As..." will save the *current* state, even if modified, to the new destination.
In either case, the "unsaved session" dialog is confusing.
