The save dialogs in gimp detect the file type by the extension of the
file name automatically. So if you name your file "myfile.xcf" it will
be a gimp xcf file, if you name it "myfile.tif" it will be a TIFF file,
"myfile.jpg" for JPG....
In your case you can "save as..." with, for example, "myfile.xcf" the
first time, then just "save" (because you don't need to give it a new
When you are done you just have to:
"save as..." with "myfile.tif" as file name for the tiff copy.
"save as..." again with "myfile.jpg" as file name for the jpg copy.
As Olivier just said 2.8 version "save" and "save as.." are only for
xcf files, but "export..." will detect the file type the same way "save
as.." is doing right now.

Because I usually save as the GIMP format until
the end, at which point I save to flattened TIFF and JPG formats too.

Why don't you just add the file extension to the filename so gimp

Is there a way to remove some of the "save as" file formats from the
list (when saving a file as...)? After numerous years in my field,
there are a number of file formats I have - and probably never will -
need to save my files as. If I could remove some of them, then it would
speed up my workflow (so that I don't have to scroll down every time I
save a file).
