Unsure about this one : it is quite uncommon to disable an OK button, except in cases where dialog requires input absolutely needed for program to continue functioning properly. Which is not the case here...

Actually it isn't just this one. It's the same with all file selectors. What seems odd to me (from a consistency or logic perspective) is that all these dialogs have a "Cancel" button, and clicking "OK" with nothing selected has the same effect as clicking "Cancel".

Craig, thanks for fixing this in NFT. However, it's still there in the NFT tab of the start-up dialog.

Also, as previously mentioned, "OK" should be greyed out in other dialogs.

These are:

- All file selectors that don't offer a default selection.

- Edit > Patterns (if nothing has been loaded).

- Edit > Replace Colours.

I'm not going to go an edit all file dialogs. Thats crazy.

I didn't mean *all* file selectors, only those for which this makes sense, and there aren't that many.

- File > Open

- File > Import > ...

- Page Context Menu: Paste File

- Context Menu file selectors for frames (text, image)

- Script > Execute Script ...

- The file selectors in Insert > Frames ...

- Story Editor > Load from File, Save to File

The rest has "OK" (or its equivalents) already disabled or uses a default selection (e.g., a directory).
