Does this option set to no mean that files continue saving in the working dir, even if a file is opened from another location? My set-up works fine but another user is having issues with his parts saving to the server after opening someone else's part from there.

Ryan, Here's what the WF4 help says about that option:
Saves the object retrieved from a directory where you do not have write permission. See the override_store_back option. The objects to be saved are set by the save_objects configuration option.
no-Does not save the object.
yes-Saves the object in the current directory.
Looks like it has to do with write permissions and works in conjunction with a couple of other options.
That said, I believe that PTC changed the default behavior of the file-open dialog a couple of releases ago to behave more like other Windows programs. By default, Pro|E will now default to the last directory browsed to rather than the working directory every time. The config option 'file_open_default_folder' controls that behavior. Set it to 'working_directory' for the old behavior (check the help files for other settings). Doug Schaefer
