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 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.
