InDesign (CS6 & prior) (PC) open/place/save default directory to CURRENTLY opened INDD project

We work on multiple projects in parallel.  InDesign seems to want to open or save using some previously accessed path that is not the current "focus"
 it frequently chooses the unintended/undesired path, and thus manually we have to drill back down to the current working-directory.

How to set InDesign preferences to set its directory path default for this currently open (& focus)  INDD directory for PLACE, SAVE, EXPORT, etc.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I haven't really sorted this problem, but do a work around. If I am referencing a common folder I put an alias on the desktop and reduce the number of folders I need to drill through.

Simple but not the best.
