'Save as' overwrites without warning (V7 323.2)

Saving an opened PDF with 'Save as' and specifying an existing file (different than the one opened) overwrites the file without a warning.

This is counter to best practices and could be painful if the user inadvertently clicks on the wrong file.

Hello claude vidal,

Just tested and am unable to reproduce this here on my machine.
I do get a warning that the file already exists - even if I am trying to save as under a different file name.
I tested with local files on a Win 10 x64 bit machine though. What is your configuration under which you can reproduce this?
