Hi Nicola,

I am doing something similar to transform a Cuis-image into
a Haver-image, but I am using Feature:


I don't get any unwanted confirmation dialogs.

Are you referring to the message displayed
in the attached screen-shot. The message is rather silly.
Please use Feature>>#require: with a
FileSystemEntry instance as an argument.

(Nevertheless we should fix that silly message)

Best Regards and HTH,
