icon Option to reimport custom images (+3)  
Currently, when you attempt to import a custom image that shares a name with something you've already imported, you get an error.

It would be nice if this error gave the option to import the image anyway. Currently, replacing an custom image currently requires you to delete it, leave the editor, and then import it again. This is not an ideal workflow.

I agree.
But I've also noticed that you become very proficient in executing this workflow quickly and repeatedly :)

PR



Improvements:
- Deleted media files are not immediately removed from the list if you hit "Delete", they are marked as "(pending deletion)" first
- Added a new button for undeleting a media file that is pending deletion
- Added a new button for replacing a media file with a different one. This updates the file name to a new one. If you select a file with a name that is already used, it'll refuse to do so.
- When trying to add a new file and it shares the name with a file that already exists, it'll ask you if you want to replace it instead. It will also unmark it from deletion if required
- All places where media files are used in DROD now support all the above options: selecting image by F9, selecting overlay image, adding sound to speech, ambient sound, video, image overlay
- Fixed a bug where replacing a speech command that had a sound with a different command would almost always result in a crash

TESTER NOTES:
- Check all the media management dialog options in evey place where they appear, just in case
- Thoroughly check what happens with replacing the speech command that has a sound effect attached in different scenarios: switching to another command, switching to another command that also uses sound, copying the command, cut-and-pasting, copy/cut between a character and a character's default script, or between two different default scripts, or between rooms, or between holds.

In short, stuff should be better by a lot!
