Working Folder

We are transitioning to Windows 7, Office 2010 and we will be upgrading to SW 2011 soon.  We are still on SW 2010.


Users have noticed that the "Working Folder" icon is gone from the file open and save dialog.

What's the best way to get SW to look in the user's working folder by default?

We use Workgroup PDM so the files are copied from the vault to the user's default working folder when opened from the vault.

We would like SW to default to this folder when saving and opening files too.  Not use some random folder location.


Is this an enhancement request or a bug since it was once in the product?


I've added a folder to my favorites as a shortcut but that becomes an extra step I don't always do.


Templates, and macros have default folders why not the file folders we use hundreads of times a day?

With PDM workgroup installed SW provides the default location so why doesn't they use it?
