Export request: Default folder

Post by kdegussem » Wed May 22, 2019 4:07 pm

I'm currently on Mac OSX and this may not apply on Windows machines. I've made the switch half a year ago so I can't check if the same issue exists there aswell.

The way Ableton Live opens the Finder window / Explorer window on different actions, varies greatly from action to action depending on where it gets called from within Ableton. The rules here are not consisting.

Whereas opening or saving a file from within Ableton will bring you to the current working directory, or in case of a new project, the last used location. However when you try to export it will always bring you to the last location where you rendered to. This creates the side effect that one can mistakenly, and very much so often, render tracks to the wrong directory. Could it be possible that the export rules can be set, that if we are talking about a saved project, the default location that opens when rendering is the root folder of the project?
