Version 2 didn't have this problem.
When I work on a file and then try to export it to another folder (for example I want only pdf in dropbox, not the mscz file) the destination chooser always goes to the folder where source file resides.

This is very cumbersome and time consuming. I almost NEVER wish to have pdf in the same folder as mscz.

Better would be either:
a) remember last opened folder (like version 2 behaviour)
b) create a setting where I can specify default folder to open when exporting
thanks,
Matej

Interestingly, so many people complained about the old behavior, I think that is why it was changed.

Should perhaps be a preference.

Seconding Matej on this one. It's very time consuming when you need to export several parts and mp3 in the same folder. I hope this will be changed.
When you work with a lot of different scores and you want to organise them, you don't want all the files in the same folder.

To be clear, for a ling time export & save as did not default to the current folder, it remembered the last used folder instead. We got very many and very strong complaints about that, so we finally changed it. So far I see two people that have complained about the change.

An advanced preference to provide the option of going back to the old behavior is fine by me, as long as it defaults to the current behavior. It should indeed affect both export and save as.
