How should you handle the dialogue box that pops up when saving a bash profile?

Every time you edit a bash_profile using nano and try to save it using the key combination of Ctrl + O, the regular open file dialogue pops up. lesson

Is there a way to get around this or is it irrelevant in this case?

Was wondering the same thing… I even installed an extension trying to fix this: but that didn’t help me, because it disables the keyboard shortcut entirely and then I cannot save anything in nano anymore…
