Subject: Default save location

Is there a way to make Poser have a default save location, so that when I save a scene, it ALWAYS get saved to that folder?

Quite often when i'm starting a new scene, I import bits and pieces that I've already set up in separate files.  Then, when I go to save the scene, Poser is pointed at the last directory I loaded somthing from, and quite often I forget and just save it.  This makes me either have to re-save it to the correct place, or wonder where the file is the next time I go to load it up.

Is there a file or something I can edit to make Poser have a default save location?  This is Poser 11 I'm working with.

Thanks.

I don't seem to have this problem with either P11 or P12.  How are you loading content into scenes, Poser Library or external browser?

I know what he's talking about. If you use Poser's import function (File -> Import), then save a new file, it will default to the file you imported the item from.

I keep all my PZ3s in one folder, so there's usually no issue if I import a Poser file. But I keep my OBJs in a different folder, so if I import one of those, the next time I save a new Poser scene, it will default to my OBJ folder.

Yep, that's the issue. :)  I keep different things in different folders (figure setup files, scene setup files, obj files, etc.).  I was hoping there was a way to make Poser default to a directory of my choosing when I wanted to save the scene, as opposed to the last directory referenced.
