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.
Adobe InDesign team
Costing us all time and money. Dear Adobe, will you issue InDesign users who upgraded and now can't downgrade a refund? Your "improved" version is getting us all in trouble with clients. NOT GOOD. What is taking so long?
Same in Windows 10 64Bit :/
It's the same in Mojave - it drives me nuts!
Pls do sth about that!
Annoying time waster. Please fix.
Come on Adobe, this issue has been looked at for 4 months. Do you guys not use your programs in a working environment before you release them? It totally disrupts work flow.
Happening to me as well. I run a print shop and printing the older file that was in the customer folder has cost me a lot of money because I had to reprint the order with the correct file AFTER searching to find where it was.
This issue made print the wrong version from a file... Please investigate this...

Please Adobe, on my opinion only a few codelines are necessary to change this behavior. So why you do not provide a hotfix instead of collecting many bugs to fix it in a major update? You only have to compare those code lines to the previous versions and that's it. PLEASE provide a FAST Hotfix!
This bug is incredibly frustrating. Wasting a lot of my time.
This is SO annoying! Have sent the wrong files to several people now :-/
So annoying - the previous version was fine - why did they need to mess with it - please fix this soon. It is making a mess of my folders
So I saved a file, it went to the wrong folder, I've somehow clicked the name of the other file that was in there without realising, lost my entire file and had to create the whole job again from scratch - after the client had signed it off! Arggghhh!!!!!!
I am having this same issue. Please notify me when an update and fix is available.

This has been happening on and off for some time with InDesign and is highly frustrating
This bug is a major one! Please fix soon as it's more than just annoying.

Along with this bug, I'm also noticing these additional issues:
1.) When I open a legacy version .indd file, the .idlk file that is automatically created disappears once the document opens. This wasn't happening before. Even if the [Converted] file was created in a previous version of InDesign, the .idlk would remain in the folder until the file was closed.
2.) When I open a .indd created by the CURRENT (2021) version of InDesign, an asterisk appears in front of the file name upon opening, as if I've made changes to the file. So I'm prompted to save files that I've JUST opened, even if no changes are made. Really annoying.
I'm aware that correlation doesn't always equal causation, BUT... these 3 issues ALL have to do with file opening/saving so it could be possible that these are related.

Same problem here -- driving me wacko! Please fix soon!
This is happening on Windows OS too. Please fix ASAP!
I’m working in InDesign, on a Mac machine, with the latest version, all up to date, and working off a server.
So, my day of work with InDesign starts like this:
1.- I open a file, (Off any given file folder off the network) then, I start editing,
2.- After a few minutes of working (because that’s how I work) or even if I just hit command + save, (because I’m in a rush to get things done) and hit enter. (because I think InDesign will recognize the folder where the file it was pull from, (as before I updated my adobe programs to 2021), when I look/search for the file, the file is not in the folder I saved it, and opened from because now InDesign does not recognize the folder from where it was opened. Rather remembers the last folder where I saved the last document that has nothing to do with the new project).
So, now when I’m working I have to take the time to go in in design and look for the folder I opened the file from re-save the file even though there’s a version of that file already created, so it will ask me if I want to replace that document, ( I’m sorry but it is annoying to do things twice in a fast pace environment).
3.- So, to save the file that I have already opened from a server/network, I have to give the hole rot path again to get it save in the right file folder.
4.- Also, after I updated from 2019 to 2020 since then, when I have a pdf file selected in my finder window, and I try to save that file, it will give me an alert telling me that the file is already open. (And this is being going on since almost more than a year).
I Hope I explain my self correctly, but if you guys have any questions please let me know.
