InDesign 16.0 saves Converted files in last used folder, not containing folder
On Catalina OSX (10.15.7), InDesign 2021 (16.0) saves a Converted file to the last used Finder folder, rather than the folder the document is contained in.
Happens with 'Save As...', as well as saving InCopy assignments.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign – version 16.0.1.
Please update to this version to get the fix.

Still not working with idml and pdf. Please, for the love of god, stop changing this functionality. I am working with very many files very quickly, I can't paranoically keep copy-pasting the source folder address every time i move around from order to order, file to file. It's basic functionality.
Also, the filenames break if they contain "." anywhere but at the end. Its basic functionality, fix it, we pay you per subscription way too much for what you're "updating" from version to version. You're generating more malfunction than useful features. We're paying you to further break the program basically.
Still not working for me. Uses last used folder when exporting pdf, keep having to move documents around. Going back to 2020 version.

This is still a problem for me. New MacBook Pro with the MI-chip. InDesign 2021 (16.0.2) saves an Exported file to the last used folder, rather than the folder the document is contained in. This is incredibly frustrating for my work process, and crazy that this wasn't caught in QA testing. I just spend 1+hour in the adobe live chat with no solution other than to post a new comment on this uservoice page.
If you click on the tree little dots in Creative cloud, you can update to 16.0.1

The update 16.0.1 isn't showing up for me in Creative Cloud.
Any ideas please?
I'm using Catalina 10.15.7.
I am still seeing this problem. I updated to 16.0.1 yesterday and it's still doing the same thing. Suggestions?
Thanks Ravi, fixed after the update!
Thanks for the fix!!
16.0.1 is still not showing up in my Updates on CC. I'm on Mojave 10.14.6. Do I have to enable auto update to make this happen or what?

Seems to be working! Thanks Adobe!
Thanks Adobe. I'm turning off automatic updates...
Thank you for this fix!
Thank you for the Fix! Its greatly appreciated!!!
Is it really fixed this time?
Anyone try it yet?
I had to go back to a previous version last time it was determined that it was fixed. I don't want to have to do that again...

Since Adobe seems to be dragging their feet on this one, here's a SUPER HELPFUL script to use in the meantime. You can also assign this script to a shortcut if you choose.
Please make this simple, logical fix for such a recurring time-consuming problem. 'Save As > Original folder' as the default setting. Like we can for re-linking under Edit > Preferences > File Handling > Links > Default Relink Folder .

Another 14 days are gone and NO Update is available. I don't know why Adobe is not able to provide a hotfix as so many other companies do so in comparable situations. Why is Adobe collecting many bugs instead of providing a hotfix to fix this awful behavior? We are programming Apps and for sure only a few codelines would be necessary to fix it. So why do we have to wait for weeks? So PLEASE fix it NOW!
