Feature request: Warning before save formatted text as .txt

Erik Richard Sørensen and I both would like to request this feature:

Both of us have made the mistake of opening a plain text file (.txt extension) in NWP, then adding formatting to it, and then saved it under the same filename with the same .txt extension. Of course, this saves it as a plain text document, so the formatting we added is lost.

It would be helpful if NWP would display a warning when you try to save in plain text format a document that contains formatting. The warning could state something like: "Plain text format will remove all formatting. To retain formatting, click Cancel and then change format to RTF or DOC."
