    Change Default folder for export

    Level 7
      How do I change the default folder that opens up when I create slices to
      export? I'm slicing a lot and every time, I have to redirect the export to
      the correct web folder. I do them one right after the other and it doesn't
      use the last folder I exported to.

      Thanks!

          It should remember the last folder used for saving or exporting. It does
          for me. Have you tried deleting the preferences folder and restarting
          the app?

            Don't know why mine doesn't but it's very frustrating. I have to repoint it
            every time I export. Where is this preferences area that I reset?

            Thanks.

              ON my PC, it's found at C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application
              Data\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\English

              Find it and delete it, then restart Fireworks. The prefs file will be
              rebuilt automatically. Hopefully it will help.

                The above advice didn't work for me, and I was having the same problem. After pulling my hair out for a week, I discovered the following fix: Export the entire image (File--> Export) to the target location. Then save the PNG. Now, whenever you export a selected slice, it'll automatically export to the folder that you exported the entire unsliced image to.
