Digital switchover is 'a mystery'


The "Always use this folder" is a pretty important change.

I liked doPDF, but it had an ANNOYING bug where it would randomly choose a location to save PDFs. It would ignore system settings and try to save files in invalid directories, protected paths, locations you didn't have access to, etc.

Printing a PDF required you to make several extra clicks with the program just to pick the correct directory. And the next time you went to print, it would default back to some random system area again!

I was close to going with something else because of the directory issue with it.
