I use the same sub folders for my export presets. My sub folders are typically "web-1000px","web-2000px", "squarespace", "nikonians",etc.
in other words they are generic.
When end I make an export preset I select "chose folder later"
However this does not allow me to specify a sub subfolder.
so if I do this. when I use the preset, the sub folder can't be predefined as part of the preset and I must type it in.
i would like adobe to allow the sub folder to be defined at the time the preset is created, even if the folder is not specified,
unless there's another way to address the issue.
IMHO, what you're writing is contradictory.
You either choose later or specify in the preset.
It is not contradictory!
I understand the problem, because I have quite the same one: I want to impose the folder and get asked for the sub-folder.
This is not possible and therefore I use the Export dialogue "manually" (using the export button).
