Asking to replace an already rendered file with a new one on export.

Ok, so I've gone over this as thoroughly as I could, but it doesn't seem to have come up before.

Something which is a minor niggle, but a nevertheless important one to me, is that whenever I export audio files, be it via main or stems, which I've exported before under the same file name, S1 never asks if it should replace the previous file or not. It automatically exports the newer file with a number between brackets. Now, I'm not opposed to this, if you'd like to have different versions of the same file, but it would be nice to have the option to have it replaced when required. Other DAWs have been doing this virtually from the start, but somehow, this has been overlooked by Presonus. The absence of this option requires me to open the folder where the audio files are stored and delete them via the OS. This is tedious and could be avoided entirely by implementing a 'replace' command upon exporting audio files and/or stems. Can't be that hard, can it?
