In XP, the first suggested folder to write the PDF through Dopdf is the same folder that the original document came from. This is as advertised and works well for my application. I recently converted to Vista x64 and the behavior is different: The first suggested folder is c:\users\(user name)... I do NOT have the "always use this folder" box checked. If I select a folder and write the pdf, any subsequent PDF writes for the current session goes to the folder I selected. However, If I close the document then reopen it and write a PDF, the suggested folder returns to c:\users\(user name).


Did I miss a setup issue or does Vista x64 behave differently than XP.

I personally really appreciated the suggested folder being the one the document came from.


My Dopdf version is 6.3 build 308

That's right, on Vista it doesn't suggest the folder where the document was opened from. We'll look into that, but you can use the Always use this folder option to force printing to a specific folder.
