How can I change the default folder when trying to "Open From Template".
When I use the open from template it defaults to the template folder in the program folders.
I want to change the default folder to a different location.
Adobe Illustrator CS3 13.0.2
I had thought of that already but it's so far away from where we keep our other files that when we save the new untitled file we have to navigate back to the folder that we want. This is a process we do many times over throughout the day. If there were a way to change the defalut folder that pulls up when you click save or save as that would be awesome.
I'm certain it's a Operating System thing and not a program thing. However Adobe has their own Dialog that should provide save settings but it doesnt seem to have anything like that.
Figured it out. Microsoft has an app that allows you to change the default user interfaces.
This allowed me to add my own folders on the left of the save dialog box for saving and opening files.
The app is called TweakUI and works quite nicely.
I still wish I was on a Mac though.
