Thanks in advance for any advice!
It should be an instant setting, no restart required.
First restart your PC and see if it then works.
Thanks, gener7. We have tried that. We are also running the latest updated version from Adobe Cloud. We have checked and unchecked the box in Preferences, restarted, and reinstalled several times, but Photoshop always defaults to the last folder used (instead of the folder where the current file was opened from). So frustrating!
Any other ideas?? Thanks!
It could be something that needs a Preferences Reset. Uninstalling and reinstalling does not remove that file which keeps track of your settings on exit.
Ok, so I have a little more information:
The “Save As to Original Folder” preference seems to behave normally when we open PSD files, but at our business we work almost exclusively with PDFs. We open PDFs into Photoshop (which pops up Photoshop's "Import PDF" dialog box with the "Page Options" and "Image Size" collections of options), and then we Save As... filetype "Photoshop PDF". I think the import step must be where the “Save As to Original Folder” parameter is getting lost.
This bug seems like an oversight on the developers' part, so maybe this is more of a development feature request issue?
I have the same problem, and it has been this way for years.
At this point we should have a screen that can do diffrent "save a copy", "save", "save as" chosen by the user I cant see it conflicting with shortcuts. Also we should have a When Finished choice, nothing, open in, etc.
PS maybe they can first fix the program opening on a new screen with differnt size and resolution issues first!!!!
