If you open a gmk file, and you want to save the project as a gmx file, you've to specify on the right panel version '1200', otherwise it will never save the project as a gmx file but as a gmk file. This is not user friendly. I think we should change this behavior.

I suppose that is pretty unintuitive. Did you just want it renamed to GMX, or did you have something else in mind?

I think the user should see only the possible versions for the current format, or at least the others options should be disabled.

What about selecting the current version of the opened project by default?

The problem is : if you open a gmk file, and then you want to save as a gmx file. It will display the version of the gmk file, but then you have to choose manually the version of the gmx file, or it will not work. This is not intuitive, as you don't know what version corresponds to what format. It would be much better, when you select the gmx format in the drop down list, to display only the available versions for this format. In general, let's display only the versions of the selected format.

Yeah ego is right, the issue is that Ism made the drop down box the file extension and that panel on the right the actual file format, it's confusing.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.
