Photoshop: Problem when trying to save large files in libraries

Here are the steps that led to my problem:
  1. Open an existing library asset in Photoshop
  2. Make edits which cause the file to be larger than Libraries' 1GB limit
  3. Close the file and select "Save" when prompted
  4. Receive an alert that Libraries can't save a file that big
  5. The file closes anyway, without saving, causing all edits to be lost
In this scenario, the file should remain open, and allow the user to fix whatever is causing the file to exceed the size limit, or opt to save it as a non-library graphic.

Yeah, any destructive action like that needs a warning with save option or to remain open.

Hi Lexigeek and Max.  Is this with the latest Photoshop version 21.0.0?
