Save dialogue default focuses

In previous beta version after selecting to which file I want to save output I could just press enter twice (or thrice if "do you want to overwrite" question appeared). Now it is broken - after closing file selection dialogue "select file" button becomes in focus and pressing enter opens file selection window again. That is very inconvenient.

Also, as a feature request: could you please make at "save video" dialogue right after opening this window to be selected filename ONLY, not the whole file address and not file extension. Just filename only. For what: if so, I could type filename and press enter right after pressing "save video" button without need to open another "select file" window.

I'm trying to figure out which beta you're referring to as I'm unable to get the "enter twice" working from beta 815 through 817. Can you provide a specific version #?
 
By "enter twice" I mean "press enter button on the keyboard twice in a row".
Now I`m facing this problem at beta 817, latest beta at the moment. I wanted to fallback to previous beta, but I couldn`t download previous installer: going directly to https://videoredo.net/beta/VRDTVS-6-60-10-816a.exe leads me to 404.


In previous version:
1) click "save video" - save dialogue opens
2) click "select file" - file selection dialogue opens
3) type in filename, hit enter
4) literally hit enter again
5) output is being saved and you are fabulous.

In beta 817:
1) click "save video" - save dialogue opens
2) click "select file" - file selection dialogue opens
3) type in filename, hit enter
4) literally hit enter again
5) file selection dialogue opens again because after step three "select file" button stays in focus in TAB order cycle.

Email me at support and I'll send you links to whichever versions you want. I don't believe 816a was ever a beta version as it's now our release version which you can download from here: https://www.videoredo.com/en/Download.htm. 815 was the last beta version before 817. You can see the whole beta history

However, I tried 815, 816, and 817 yesterday and was unable to duplicate here, by looking at the update log at the lower part of this page: https://www.videoredo.net/msgBoard/index.php?resources/videoredo-tvsuite-v6-beta.3/

Personally, I'd like the behavior to be the same as what you want. Press "Enter" twice and it saves.
 
That`s kinda strange that you can`t duplicate it.

I`ve downloaded installer from https://www.videoredo.com/en/Download.htm , got VRDTVS-6-60-10-816a.exe installer. Installed it.
With this version right after closing file selecting dialogue save dialogue`s window looks like on attached screenshot 816. As you can see, focus is set onto profile selection block. And if I hit "enter", it saves (or asks me a confirmation to overwrite file).

After taking screenshot I installed beta 817 back and repeated same steps. At this version focus is set onto "select file" button. For obvious reasons, if I hit "enter", file selection dialogue opens.

Also, I made a screenshot for the feature requested above: imagine if "save video" dialogue appeared on the screen in state like at screenshot. Firstly, if you do not need to change location of output file, you can directly type desired filename because tab focus is set onto filename string and file`s NAME ONLY is being selected without path and extension. Secondly, it would be supercool if you could hit "enter" instantly and therefore start output creation process. In 817 hitting "enter" just forces whole filepath string to be selectend, nothing else.
