Other than that it does what it's supposed to do for most people, the way around the directory issue is... move it. I don't think it matters at all where that directory is located. I will have to test that theory, but I would imagine it will save it to whatever directory you opened it at. Go to the directory location and move it.
You have to navigate manually to the folder to get to them anyways so I don't think it matters where you navigate to. Move it and see what happens when you save. If it works, issue fixed for you
