Dear Affinity people,

I've encountred a strange behaviour when saving files. 

I've always thought that the program will offer as a saving location the folder the original file was placed in. 

But when I open a picture in Affinity Photo, for example, make some adjustments and try to save it or export - it will show totally different location, without much sense.

If I save it in some random location, the next time I open another file from a different folder, it will not even offer the last used location for saving - this would still be strange and make some sense but even this doesn't happen.

So how exactly does the saving work? Why it doesn't offer the original location first?

This 'Feature' has been flagged several times before. I have yet to see any user saying that they are happy with the current arrangement. I have seen it claimed that the Developers are not interested in amending this behaviour, though I have not actually seen any feedback from the developers either way. You really should post your request in the Feedback for the Affinity Suite of Programs Forum. We are told that the developers do read this forum and that they have been known to respond to requests in the forum.


[EDIT] this thread seems to have been moved. (Or else it was originally here and I read the location wrong.)
