New File Dialogue Box

*Describe the bug

This is definitely super low priority but I figured I’d mention it in case it’s a simple fix. I use the ‘create new file in folder’ action quite a bit since Finder can’t do it ootb. When triggered, a dialogue box pops up asking you to name the new file. But instead of overlaying on the Finder window (which is obvious in focus) it pops up on the BTT window. Not a huge issue once you realize what it’s doing because you can just start typing either way. But it did take me a while to find the box and figure out what was going on.

Sidenote: outside of adding a few actions to set the name (Transform and Replace with JS, hit ⮐ ) is there an easy setting to autoname the file, like maybe with a timestamp?
