Change "Export For Screens" Save Path Default To File Folder
f I go to File > Export > Export For Screens the default save path points to the last folder I used. What we as users are expecting is the default path to be equal to the same folder as the Illustrator file is currently located in.
If you feel this should not be the default at least give us a way to change this in the AI Preferences. Thanks!
Definitely would be helpful if this bug is fixed. Photoshop has this feature. We need it in AI please!! Thank you.
This would be a very helpful feature. I work on multiple projects at any given time and have to switch the export path regularly. Sometimes if I am not paying close attention I end up exporting to the wrong folder and then have to go and find and remove those images amongst potentially 100s of other images. Its an edge case when I actually want to export to the last folder used, especially if the file I am working in is not within that same folder.

Dear Adobe Team, this is about user experience and in my opinion the lack of this option has a negative impact on this. Please provide fix or option to change settings in AI Preferences. Thanx!
I can't understand how a company like Adobe can't fix this simple request. Seems absurd to me.

I would have prefered to use the one from adobe.... but this problem is so annoying
The export for screens dialog always exports to the last location regardless of the file you have open. If you have multiple documents to export this makes it very hard to use. Effectively you must pick the file location each time you export.
It would be much better if the location was set per file. Then you could set it once and export easily.
