Photoshop: Show alert when "Export as" assets with same names

When exporting assets using Export As feature, sometimes it happens that layers occasionally have the same name. Photoshop exports them as usual but overwrites one asset with other. 

It would be great if Photoshop showed an alert with a warning in these cases.

Hi Aleksei,
Which version of Photoshop are you using?  I tried with 2019 and two layers named "Layer 1".  The export yielded "Layer 1.png" and "Layer 1-1.png".
If you can share an example file, that would help greatly.

Thanks,
Sam

Well, I can't reproduce it with 2018 either. 

I came across missing assets several times during last year or more, the issue always was in asset names. It seems last time it exported as you said, so maybe it was fixed already or the problem is different. 

I'll tell if I catch it again.
