This unfortunate change has slowed down my workflow. I have sent the wrong proofs several times to customers and have looked bad because I didn't notice the change in time. I don't understand why this type of change was not made as a preference option instead of just changing it outright. I have to export files on average of 10 -15 times a day and this change is just frustrating. For years I have expected to be able to export into the folder that I opened my document from, now I have to navigate to it each time. Sure, it's a minor inconvenience and in a year or so if this doesn't become an option, I will probably be used to the new way but it does take more time and that time adds up. Why your team would do this and not just make it an option for us to choose is beyond me. Is it that hard to place a option in preferences to change the behavior? Can some UI programmer just write the code and send it to Adobe? I just thought of something, I am going to try to revert to the older version of Illustrator to avoid this change, which me luck!
