Package: mate-desktop-environment
Version: 1.8.0+9
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?
Atril is a bit slow to show the file and I only needed to save a copy with a name depending
on a number inside the pdf-file.
(Trying to save my creditcard monthy account overviews, which are all downloaded with the same name.)

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or ineffective)?
The Atril pdf-viewer allows to save a copy of the file,
while it is still processing the file (it shows the "Loading..." pop-up").

   * What was the outcome of this action?
But it does not write the copy at all, when Atril is not ready with loading.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
It should have given an indication that it did not copy the file or
it should temporarely disable this function until fully loaded.

(I'm probably to impatient, but on a slow laptop with 1-page pdf-files,
 I like to speed thing up, but after processing 15 files, I found Artil only copied those,
 that I saved after the loading was complete and the file was fully visible on screen)

PS. I also tried the HELP function, bug got the following error message:
