Change Place Name

This pop-up box appears when one changes the Place Name for Facts. Is there a way to 'turn off' this pop-up?

When initially changing to the 2009-2012 versions fr V16, this was a handy feature as it greatly assisted in the task for making place names be consistent.

But I can't think of the last time I needed to change more than the one Place Name when this pop-up appears (normally I've found new data and add a county or city to a state name).

I realize it's fairly simple and easy to click OK but thought there may be a way to shut off this service.

I don't think it can be done. I wish it wouldn't come up, because when I'm working quickly, I sometimes fat finger my response. I've ended up unintentionally changing all place names instead of just that particular one. If it were up to me, I'd only make wholesale changes of that nature in the Places workspace, and I'd save myself the hassle of dealing with a mandatory dialogue box on each change of place.
