Updated files not overwriting
#4
It's not asking if you want to overwrite the song, it's asking if you want to overwrite one of the files in use by another song. If you just want to replace an existing file in a song, the swap file feature is the correct way to do that, as it lets the application determine if there are any important changes that have occurred between each version of the file. Long press the song, tap the three dots at the top right and select "Swap File" from the dropdown to initiate the swap. You can also just use a file manager to replace the file, as the app will scan for changes when it realizes the timestamp on the file has changed.

I could consider adding an option in the future to allow people to update existing songs when using the import feature if a conflict is encountered. If multiple songs use the same file though, this would effectively update all of the songs at once. I'd like to hear from people if this would be more intuitive and useful than the current behavior.
