This is normal expected behavior if you are opening documents not previously saved in the version you use to open them. Once saved, though it should stop.
Thanks Peter - I am in fact opening and saving in CC vs. 5.5....
I wouldn't call it "normal", though....
ID has always worked this way when converting a file. Converted files are considered to be "new" and are handled this way to prevent accidentally overwriting the old version.
Maybe so - but isn't that the idea behind the alert that pops up when you want to overwrite a file?
Also, I doubt it: If this were truly the case (protecting files), why would it revert to a relatively arbitrary file location (i.e. last folder in which an ID document was saved), in stead of, say, the desktop?
I love what Adobe's doing with updates and CC but a lot of it (e.g. not highlighting missing files, even when within the right folder) leaves me scratching my head!
You only get the alert when you do a Save As, which is what happens here because the file is considered new. Once saved, and opened in the same version, a regular save just overwrites without warning.
As far as location, ID ALWAYS defaults to the last location you performed the same file operation if it cannot perform it in the current folder (and how would ID know where you want to save a brand new file?).
You can file a feature request to change the behavior, but you'd need to make a very strong case for why this would benefit most users, and even then I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a change that might not be technically doable without major code revision.
ID recognizes when the version being saved is new, and defaults to the last directory used, but can't instead pop up a warning if saving into the "correct" directory?
Which is what it does if you do a "save as" into the same directory anyway.
Not feeling that this workflow is correct. I believe something may have been missed here.
