Summary0000417: Replace the previous default setting "Replace current project" with "Create new resource only".

Just one comment... I won't dwell on it because we're supposed to be discussing Videoscopes...

I never use the "Replace current project" option and I don't understand why it exists, let alone why it appears by default after a new installation...

I always create new resources, even when I open an existing project. Feeding the timeline from the resource window seems to me the most normal procedure.

I also think that this "Replace current project" option is dangerous, especially if it is offered by default.
I agree with your assessment. Delivering the option "Replace current project" as default setting is not the best choice in my opinion either. I have been annoyed about it so often. I would suggest we open a new ticket, better it would be if "Create new resource only" is default.

My workflow is different from your, I think.
I always use "Replace current project" when I open an old project or a project where I am working on.
I use "Create new resource only" when I added files in Resources.
But, I would like to have an "Open Project" option in Menu because it would have more sense, for me, and avoid mistakes.
