Hide prompt about non-PNG filetype on save in Fireworks?

I have around 800 JPEG images that I need to open in Fireworks CS5, make a small change, and then save them again.

It can't be batch processed, it's a small change that has to be done by eye (drawing a rectangle over a web address which appears in different places in photos used for Ebay so we don't get caned for having an off-ebay link!)

When I go to save the files in Fireworks, I am prompted with the message "You have made changes to this document that will not remain editable in the JPEG format" and then can choose to save in the PNG or JPEG format.

I see no way of turning off that prompt to save all the extra clicking it brings out - any way of doing that?

"When you open (import) a non-PNG file in Fireworks, the export file type setting defaults to the file type of the file you opened. To view or change the current export file type setting, open the Optimize panel. Also, if you want the most efficient balance of file size and quality, it is a good idea to optimize and preview what you'll be exporting before you export."

It's default behavior. Programed in this way as the program does not know what you want to do with the edited file. It's a Layout design tool by heart so it assumes you are trying to create a layout of some sort and you cannot have layers on a jpeg file. So it gives you the choice instead of just converting it to a .png.

"Note: In Windows, when you open a non-PNG file in Fireworks, the file is still identified as its original format in the Fireworks document window. However, any edits you perform are actually made to the Fireworks PNG file."
