    When using a template the 'Save As' opens the templates folder to save to, not the last used folder

    guitar uk Level 1

      I used to open a file from the templates folder,

      add details then click 'Save As' to save it the folder I was using.

       

      Now I have downloaded Fireworks CS6 it always opens the 'Templates' folder when I click 'Save As'

      I don't want to make a new template each time,

      I want it to open the folder I was last using.

       

      I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling but I can't get it to open the folder I was last using whan I click 'Save As',

      which is what it did before when I was using Fireworks CS5.

       

      Are there any Settings to change this?

       

      Of course I can click 'Recent Places' but it was easier before when the right folder to save to just came up first time.

          Saved files seem to remember their last saved location. So if you create a new file based on a Template, the first time you choose Save As, the location of the source (template) file will appear. However, once you've saved the file to a new location, that new location should become the new default for any subsequent iterations of that file.

           

          New files (not created from a template) pick up the location of the last saved file.

           

          All this is to say, the file saving issue you're experiencing should only be a problem the first time you save a file based on a template. Every time you open that file afterward, it should default to its current folder location. But yes, every time you create a file based on a template, the default location will be the Templates folder. If this feels like a big problem, I believe you have the option of opening a template file from any location... so you could copy or move the template into a more desireable folder location, and create your new file(s) based on the template in that location.

           

          Hope this gives you some ideas!
