Add to current library - off by default please!

CC libraries are useful. BUT every time I paste something in to PS from elsewhere (a smart object etc.) it saves it to my current library by default.

When working, sometimes if I'm rushed or just not concentrating (not that that is a common occurrence of course!) I paste in things and don't remember to untick the 'add to current library' box and then I end up adding things to client libraries that are for different clients, and 9 times out of 10, don't even know I've done it, which means a lot of my clients will have lots of things unrelated to their projects in their shared libraries - which is potentially a serious issue.

Add to current library needs to be OFF by default, not on. Or at least have the option to decide which setting is default please.

This is a very very important request.

Although it's just been a nuisance for me, it has cost me time when it automatically added something rather large when I'd forgotten to check, too. So I'm voting with you if you'll change this to a feature request. Called "Idea" here. It's not a bug. It's "as designed," and I'm sure it was designed as the default to make it discoverable since libraries are new, but I think it's still not a good design to have it be the default.

Thanks! If only I could figure out how to turn it in to a request... :D Can't seem to find an edit option?!

I think it has to be done by a moderator, who are probably in short supply this week. It might be quicker and easier just to make a new post with Idea instead of Problem so everyone who has been caught out by this can vote to change the default.
