    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.

    The problem persist with the last export opened in adobe acrobat.
    Say for example I exported Name1.pdf and I opened in acrobat then re-try to re-export? won't overwrite the doc. But let's say I work on the same file one with bleeds and another one without bleeds? it will overwrite the one previously open on acrobat but not the last one opened in Acrobat I don't know if it makes any sense of what I'm saying.

    Step 1. Create InDesign Doc. finish Doc.
    Step 2. Export Document as name.pdf
    Step 3. Open Document name.pdf / Revise it / Close name.pdf document.
    Step 4. Edit InDesign Doc.
    Step 5. Export name.ind with edits, / NO CAN'T DO.
    Warning says "Cannot save to the file name.pdf, because it is already open"
    Step 6. Check if it is open / DOCUMENT name.pdf is closed not open.
    Step 7. Close InDesign and Acrobat. / Reopen InDesign & Acrobat.
