Ability to turn off Safe Files protection for a set period of time

I'm a developer. When I'm developing, I am often using a bunch of tools and scripts to do my work. Those tools and scripts create, modify and move sensitive files. Due to the nature of development, it is not manageable to whitelist every script and tool that modifies protected files. Compiled scripts and other binaries are seen as a different application over and over again. Much of the time, it's worth answering the dialog box that appears asking for approval to let the operation change files, so that the protection of the sensitive files is maintained.

But sometimes, you're changing lots of stuff over a short period of time (an hour or two), and answering the prompt for access permission over and over again becomes cumbersome. In these cases, it is worth disabling Safe Files for a while. The problem is, you have to remember to turn Safe Files back on. I would like a way to say "Disable Safe Files for 1 hour" so that I don't have to remember to re-enable the protection when I no longer need it disabled.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
