Hi Ashutosh, what's the story? This is a nightmare for your professional users.Matt commented
Echoing all the comments here. This is an infuriating decision with major workflow ramifications. Each project has its own folder. If I open a new project to work on, I want to export derivative work in that folder--not the other folder from the completely different project I exported the last time I worked on something! Maddening.
