             Bug #: 46479
           Summary: FILESAVE: Save As dialog File name filed pre-fill
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.5.0 Release
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
 Status Whiteboard: BSA
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Writer
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: sahumani at gmail.com

Problem description: 
When saving to ODT a modified document from any other format (DOC or RTF being
most often with me) the Save As dialog doesn't pre-fill the 'File name' field
with the original DOC filename leaving it empty, but only if no other ODT
documents being already in the destination folder present. If there is at least
one other ODT document, the filename is pre-filled.

This behaviour is the same with Spreadsheets (tested with XLS to ODS) so I
believe all other modules behave the same way.

Observerd in OpenOffice 3.2 as well, so this is quite old.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create folder, put 2 RTF documents into it with any content named Test1.rtf
and Test2.rtf....
2. Open Test1.rtf, make some changes, save, choose save as ODT
3. Save As dialog's File name filed will be empty.
4. Fill in text Test1 into the File name filed and save the document. Test1.odt
will be created.
5. Open the Test2.rtf, make some changes, save, choose as ODT
6. Save As dialog's File name filed will be pre-filled with text Test2 now

Current behavior:

Expected behavior:
Save As dialog's File name filed should be pre-filled with the document's name
even if the destination folder doesn't contain any other ODT documents

Platform (if different from the browser): 

Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:10.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/10.0.1
Also true on Windows 7 x64 Professional or Ultimate (I believe any other
Windows based OS suffers from this, possibly all OSs)
