I am new to both iMac and Illustrator, and cannot find a way to save .ai files to a specific sub-folder.
The options available in the Save As dialog box are Devices, Favourites and Recent places. If the folder I want doesn't show in these categories I end up saving to the desktop and moving the file in Finder. Can anyone help me to save lots of time, and my sanity, please.
Default folder is the way to go as you can set the default folder.
But you can also simply expand the save as dialog to show the navigation filed which will give you access to your files you can even drathe folder you want to target to the favorites in the left sidebar.
Iuse default folder and the Apple dialog.

You can drag a folder icon from practically anywhere into the list view of the save dialog box and Mac OS picks up that location. You don't even need a plugin for that.
That is very true though the plug in if you investigate into it can also be helpful.
