Coming from windows when I export projects or save files I'm used to being able to specify exact destination folders, for example if I'm exporting a video I've edited of our holiday to Sharm El Sheik I can set the destination folder as follows:
Movies > Holidays > Sharm El Sheik.

When I try to do the same on Mac I can select Movies, but it then doesn't allow me to go any deeper into the folder tree so I have to save to Movies, then locate the file and either copy it or drag it into Holidays and then Sharm El Sheik.

Is there any way I can specify exact destination folders on the Macbook?

Cheers

Have you tried clicking the little triangle to the right of the name of the file?

I've not seen a triangle. Some apps do let me specify folders, but some don't. One that doesn't is iMovie. When you go to share and select your files type it gives you a drop down box and all I can select is the main folder and not subfolders :confused:
