When saving new script in Batch Processing the settings on General tab are reset on save. :bug:

Reproduce:
  1. Start Batch Processing.
  2. Change some settings on General tab.
  3. Save script.

Ok, but I find this behavior potentially dangerous. If you save the script while you are on Transformations tab or you just don't notice the reset you can accidentally run the batch process with wrong settings.

Hello,
By definition, a batch process script is always dangerous, then the advised user is usually aware and takes care (works with copies...).
For me your suggestion is very more dangerous because the normal settings can be changed after a batch process, even for a normal use of xnview (the jpg quality, and so....like before with previous xnview versions).
So, of course, I prefer leave this batch process behavior as it is now.
