P: set Lightroom to always import settings

When I upgraded to macOS Ventura from a much older version, the whole feel of the save dialog boxes changed from horizontal to a more vertical format. This change seems to have carried over to Lightroom Classic (12.4) as well


If I select some files in grid view, then click Command +S to save, I see old, horizontal dialog box, with option to overwrite settings, which obviously I do not want to do. If I dismiss it, then click on up arrow on an image, I get the new vertical style dialog box. I do not want to use the first choice, as again, I want the image to display/keep the changes I made in the ACR window, so I would click Import Settings from Disk.


I wish there was a way to set Lightroom to always import settings, as I can’t remember ever wanting to lose work I did in the raw window, and I am afraid I will accidentally hit Enter, or click the top choice, losing all the work I will have done to potentially hundreds of files. I wish there was a way to never see this dialog box, and ALWAYS Overwrite setting (similar to how I can select Don’t show again in other dialog box).
