    2020.4 defaults to "Documents" folder

    Whenever I choose to export a file, it always defaults back to the "Documents" folder. Which is super annoying when trying to export several things, and having to re-navigate back to the folder I actually want to export to. Every. Single. Time.

    Sure, I could create a MacOS sidebar "shortcut" alias to get there in one click, but then I'd have to do that for every single project and directory I want quick access to. And that changes constantly.

    This seems like a new thing in 2020.4. I can't recall having exports always default to "Documents" in prior versions.

    Anyone else have this issue and/or solved it?

    I have a similar problem here.  When I export, Avid does not remember the last folder I selected.  In my case it's selecting a "profile" folder for one project and a projects folder for another.

    This might be the same thing as my RECENT PLACES bug, or part of it, incase anything can be added to the case.
