    I don't know if this is a bug or by design, but I find it very annoying that when I try to use the geoprocessing tool Export XML Workspace Document in ArcGIS Pro 2.3 and browse to a file path with a .xml extension that it automatically adds .z to the end of it when it returns to the geoprocessing tab.  I don't want to have to unzip it immediately nor do I want it to change what I typed in.  Using a zip archive should be optional.  It is noted in the documentation.  I can override it from the input parameters tab, but I found this very annoying.
