'Save As' functionality


I keep losing my projects.

I know, I know,  this is my problem and I'll learn but...


Almost 100% of the time when I 'save as' I want to save the file in the same folder as the one that contains the file I'm working on.

Almost 0% of the time do I want to save it in the "last folder saved to" folder - which is often somewhere completely different.


'Save as' in our  workflow is use to increment the current project and archive the daily changes - hard drive space is cheap and the hours redrawing something from a previous iteration are not (and yes I have automatic backups (every 42 operations of course) too).


Having to navigate to the proper folder every time I 'save as', or at the very least check to make sure that's where I'm directed, cost design time and breaks the creative flow!



...now I'm off to try and find that file I was working on 2 days ago that's not in it's proper folder.

Pet peeve of mine also. This is a problem which is not exclusive to Vectorworks.
