Anyone else have problems with the way Isodraw 7.3 saves files?

We've just upgraded from Isodraw 7.0 to 7.3 and are finding it very difficult to cope with the way it now saves files.

Previously, when you opened a file and clicked "Save As" it would default to the directory the file was originally in which to us is logical.

Now, when you click "Save As" it defaults to the directory you last saved a file in.

We are a very busy drawing office and are constantly loading up drawings for modifications in different contracts (and therefore different directories). We usually want them saving down in the same directory with a modified number.

Now we have to be really careful as we can't assume that an illustration will save in the same place it was loaded.

We understand that this modification was requested by some users, but it came in without any warning and with no way round it (wouldn't it have been simple to have a setting to allow saving either way?). We did complain about this change a few years ago when it was first introduced but we've finally had to upgrade to 7.3 as we need some of the new macro features.

Maybe this 'new' way of saving ills is useful for people who only work in 1 directory, but we may work in 10 or 15 different contracts during a day and inevitably, we're saving some ills in the wrong places, then later having to search for them and mover them to the right places.

Can anyone tell me what advantage there is in the new way? All is does for us is cause confusion and mistakes.
