Stop domain information from being deleted when one accidentally enters the same domain name

    When creating domains via ArcCatalog, if a domain name is already in use, it would be great if it told you this and then allowed you to change the name.

    Currently it deletes everything you have ever typed. So if you have a rather long list, which you have just typed out, you lose it all.

    In my example I was copying data from an existing domain which I needed to be assigned to a new user. As I was not sure how I could transfer the domain from one user to another, I set about copying. Only I forgot to change the domain name so it all got wiped.

    Rather annoying.
