"Could not export the clipboard" dialog improvement request

I would really like to see a "Don't show this again" option for the "Could not export the clipboard because it is too big to export." warning dialog. Or at least to not have it interfere with trying to switch to another application with Cmd-Tab or by clicking another application window.

The way Photoshop tries to maintain focus in order to show that dialog box is not necessarily a problem, it's easy enough to hit escape or click on it. However, focus is not passed back to the other application after the warning, so essentially, trying to switch to another application results in Photoshop dumping the clipboard, hiding what you were working on, and then just sitting there in front of what you were trying to get to.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled The annoying "Could not export the clipboard because it is too big to export." al....

The notification alert "Could not export the clipboard because it is too big to export." that pops up when switching to other applications when having a large image in the clipboard desperately needs a checkbox "Don't show anymore" or a corresponding item in the preferences.

This is an annoyance when working with lots of large images and needs to be able to be permanently supressed.
