    In mail, i can only save to Downloads or a folder on the same level. It won't let me choose a subfolder or create a folder like i could before. Same thing when i try to save a file. When i'm using Adobe CS3 applications i swich to the adobe dialog boxes but this seems so stupid.

    This is a HUGE time waster for me. I deal with a projects that involve a great quantity of files that need a lot of folder organization. Is this something to do with stacks? Am i being required to think differently? Help!

    To expand the Save options, click the arrow to the right of the text box where you choose the file name.

    Not true

    It is not true that the little drop down box will bring up subfolders when you are using "Save Link As" from a document on the web. The options Documents are there, but I can not get the subfolders to appear!

    First, this thread is ancient. Second, it is absolutely true. You're probably not clicking on the correct button. It's just to the right of the name of the file you're saving.
