I understand the request, but that would mean that for any other user who saves files to a local folder (which is by far the more common case), the process would slow down slightly because the file would have to be written to temp and then moved to its final location. Not a big deal, admittedly, but still...

We always try to code our features so that they perform best under the most likely conditions. Saving files to a network location that suffers from undue latency is not the most likely condition.

Obviously, we could add a checkbox stating "Always write to temp file first", but if we start adding those kinds of options in all cases, the software will become filled with such checkboxes. Having too many options that are used by few people turns it into a confusing mess for the common user.

Hope you understand our position.
