Link media - the cancel button doesn't cancel
When a project with missing media opens, it brings up the Link Media box. If I don't want to link media, there are options at the bottom to offline all or cancel. As far as I can tell, those buttons both do the same thing.
Either way, it opens the project without trying to reconnect missing footage. The cancel button really should cancel opening the project instead. I often just forgot to connect a drive and know where everything is. In those cases I'd prefer to close the project, connect the drive, and reopen it. Relinking media is slower and tends to clear out my interpret footage settings (despite the checkbox claiming it won't). The way it is now, I still have to proceed with opening the project and close it.
In any case, there's no reason to have two different buttons which do the exact same thing.

Good to know. An option to abort opening the project would still be useful.

The Offline All and Cancel buttons do have a slightly different function (although, maybe they could be a bit more intuitive)
If you Offline All the save the Project, any time you go to reopen this Project, it should Not bring up the Link Media dialog when the Project is opened. This button is telling the Project that you intend to keep the file Offline.
Cancel then save the Project, any time you go to reopen this Project, it should bring up the Link Media dialog. The Cancel button is telling the Project that you want to cancel linking media, but don't save the state so that subsequent opens of the Project will ask to link the media.
