Be able to click an existing file name when choosing file path for exporting, and have your export be automatically re-named to that
This was a feature in non-beta Premiere
This has been fixed in version 22.5 which is available now. There is a slight difference between Mac and Windows that you should be aware of. On Mac you can select any file with any file extension to copy the name. On Windows, the default is to only show the same file extensions you are trying to save. So if you are exporting a .mp4 and want to copy the name from a .mov, Windows makes this hard - it hides the .mov files from you. We are working to fix that specific issue on our end somehow since it's a silly limitation. This is the same behavior as the legacy export mode. There is a workaround on Windows though. Type *.* (star dot star) and hit Enter in the filename field. This will show all files in the directory. This is a function of Windows that Premiere Pro has very little control over but we are still looking into it to see what we can do. I'm marking this request as completed, because I think the change we made addresses the request here. Thank you all for bearing with us while we worked this out.

Why isn't the default export setting 'entire sequence'? People have been asking for this for years, because you assume when you export a sequence, you're exporting a sequence, not just the bit between the last in and outs you entered. I mean it asks me three times if I want to overwrite a sequence, but never once says 'are you sure you just want to export three seconds of your five minute film?'
What good is user voice if you manage it into something else other than the user's voice. The new interface is horrendous. premiere is turning into a lump of garbage interface. I can't even create a project and when I go to export I feel like I'm nowhere near what I previously did and it is terrible.

Can you guys PLEASE revert back to the original Export AND create new/import Interface. The new update is horrible, not well organized, and has too many extra steps that takes away time to get things exported.
Lary Anderson commented
The new Adobe Premiere Pro new project UI is awful. Please give us a way to revert back to the sensible version!
Eric Morelli commented
Im here to ask to please revert the Open Project/Import/Export UI screens back to the original format. Or give users the option to choose between the two.
Been using premiere for almost 10 years and recent updates have already made it run extremely slow on my 18 core, 128gb ram Mac when editing 1080p footage at 1/4 the resolution. Now my workflow is slowed down ontop of that by having all the import/export and workspace options hidden in endless pull down menus.
Thinking its time to switch to Resolve and cancel my all-apps subscription here. I’ll use the CS6 bundle I own for Photoshop/Illustrator/Premiere Pro instead.

I signed on just to post that the new import export screens are ****. What a massive step backwards. Why do all these companies who grow huge with a dedicated user base suddenly turn on their user base once they reach a certain point. Like, did Billie Eilish fans get you to your current market cap? No. Show your user base a little respect or we're going over to da Vinci. This redesign is a joke.
So annoying. The new Import/Export UI is horrible. Built for 5 year olds I guess adobe is trying to appeal to a new demographic
Curt Walton commented
Totally agree. Just importing a simple video file now takes so much work just to make it look normal. I import video files and they look HORRIBLE. Blown out, etc. Yeah, I've tried your rec.709 and it still looks like ****. What are the engineers trying to do? Adobe has totally screwed up this program now. I have used it and LOVED it for 10 + years and this week, got back from a trip and updated the new UI and it SUCKS. Thanks for making my work load so much harder and longer. Really appreciate it.

Hey there! Wanted to cast my vote to revert back to previous UI!

The new export interface, along with the new bugs it brought such as this one, are what happens when pride and ego replace good sense and respect (i.e. respect for us users and the very real issues we have in Pr that the team continues to push aside or ignore altogether). While it's nice to see this bug fixed, it would have been so much nicer if that development time had been used to fix something else simply by virtue of not reinventing the wheel where there was zero good sense to do so in the face of so many other much more pressing issues. How much less development time would it have taken to fix the old export interface's small issues? How many other problem could have been tackled already if the Pr team actually cared more about us users than their ego driven pet projects that callously disregard what we actually need and want? So thanks but no thanks for fixing this Adobe.
By their actions, it seems that if the Pr team were on the Titanic, rather than trying to get people to safety, they're be busy redecorating the dining room. :(

I'm sorry Adobe but I agree with everyone else here. The real fix should've been to revert back to the old export window, nothing else. Seriously every year you guys are getting me closer to just bitting the bullet and learn Davinci Resolve.

This UI change is the single worst change to adobe software I've seen in years. If this is the way Adobe software continues to go, I'll look elsewhere before renewing my subscription next year.
EDIT: I just want to add that this is supposed to be professional software, and yet the interface looks like it was designed for a novice or child. Whoever thought this was a good idea clearly doesn't actually use this software and needs to get a clue.
There was absolutely nothing wrong with the previous UI... let's not forget the old adage of "if it's not broke, don't fix it".
John D Frey commented
The onus of bad design is on the designer, not the user. This is not a learning curve issue. Adobe is making poor decisions on purpose, and in some cases the apparent reason is to drive revenue and not ease of use.
Brian Seay commented
as the original promoter of this idea, it has been fixed. thank you greatly as this has already come in handy multiple times. I appreciate your help in this. Though I do not want to sound ungrateful, the export screen was fine the way it was and it is a small bit bothersome with the new UI changes. Obviously I’m sure that wasn’t the intention but it is not widely liked from the community, or at least the part that is vocal. However… even with this said, the original problem is solved and the New UI will just be a learning curve for those who don’t adapt well to change.
This has never been an issue before you created this new UI literally nobody I know knows what it is good for.
And why it is much worse than not being good for anything has been explained time and again now.
Aaron MacCarley commented
The new import/export system is god awful... I just want to create a new project without importing anything and I am having to research online how to do this, and I've used Premiere Pro since..2009?
Dan Pearce commented
Thanks for fixing this Francis.
It still has the bug where you can't exit using the Escape key. Hope that's being worked on as well.
Andy Gilleand commented
Most development environments allow file save dialog boxes to include multiple file type filters in the dialog box, so for example
"MP4 Files|*.mp4|All Files|*.*"
would by default show MP4 files, but the user could click the dropdown list for the file type and change it to All Files as well
Zach Delano commented
Hey all, just jumping in to say the update is finally out and the save dialogue box issue is fixed. It's LONG overdue but late is better than never.
Will Lennon commented
Please fix this, it's become VERY annoying and takes up so much time.
