When I have numbers of edited jpgs to be saved one after the other, Photoshop may retain my last entry for "JPEG Options" dialog choices, "Quality" (0-12) & "Format Options" (Baseline, Baseline Optimized, Progressive). This is the preferable behavior.
But very often in a work run, Photoshop shows a mind of it's own & changes either of the settings each time the dialog pops up, I presume based it's idea of content complexity. I never prefer this, and it is a major workflow irritant because I must both watch for unwanted changes, and switch away from comfortable, fast muscle-memory keyboarding to the mouse. I understand you can keyboard the slider & radio button entries too, but every new step adds errors and takes time. I do not want to use an action to save the files, my fingers are on the keyboard already nor do I want to assign a hotkey combo. I want to address the issue of Photoshop picking it's own settings.
My idea request is that the issue be solved by making the "JPEG Options" panel lockable.
