Remember Last Save Location?

Hello, can someone program Screenflow to (or show me how to enable) saving to the previously chosen save location? It gets bothersome to have to manually select a location every time, especially as I have an intensive and extensively complex workflow. Thanks!

    ScreenFlow 8.2.2 always seems to remember my last save location. Aim at any folder and save. Quit and restart ScreenFlow. It remembers the save location. This is even when I save to external devices.

    Using ScreenFlow 10.0.6 on macOS 12.5, I always need to select the correct location each time I export. I've tried quitting and restarting ScreenFlow. In my case, ScreenFlow defaults to exporting to the Desktop, whereas I want to export to a different folder, and maintain that as the default until I save to a different folder.

      Sorry but I can't duplicate the issue.
      ScreenFlow 10.0.6 on macOS 12.5 on M1 13" MBP

      • Open ScreenFlow
      • Create New Document
      • Create MYLOCATION in Documents folder
      • Save to MYLOCATION
      • Quit ScreenFlow
      • Open ScreenFlow
      • Create New Document
      • Save to and immediately defaults to MYLOCATION.


      It remembers my newly created location.

    Thanks for the quick response CraigS !

    It's export that I'm having problems with (not document saving).

      Sam Dutton That's already an option.
      Make Current Settings Default saves the location. It will default to that location for all your exports until you change it or Reset to Factory Defaults (Desktop).

      CraigS Thanks! That works. 

      I wonder if it might be easier for users, to default to the most recent save locations for export and for documents (like Photoshop does, for example). Make Current Settings Default is a bit hidden :).

     True.

    Many apps do that. But I wonder if there's concern that people will forget that the files are being stored in a previous location. I've certainly known people to experience "where did my file go?" when they forget that.

      CraigS I think that people have come to expect that apps default to the most recent location when saving. I also suspect that users (like me!) may not be aware that 'Make Current Settings Defaults' makes it possible to set the current default export location. I've had the 'where did my file go?' problem with the current setup, when I've forgotten to select 'Make Current Settings Defaults' as I move between projects.

      Sam Dutton I've made the developers aware of these issues and do believe they intend to make the requisite changes so it defaults to the last used location for export.
