    Since moving to El Capitan from Mavericks I've had an odd little problem when trying to open files from within my grading program (Making the Grade). In the past, when I would hit Command-O to open a new file, the last-opened folder would appear. This was generally my Grades folder. However, now that I started using El Capitan, I see the Grades folder momentarily, then the dialog box suddenly switches to the Documents folder. This is a bit annoying. Is there some way prevent the Documents folder from being the default for opening my files?

    Have you tried Finder Prefs > General > New finder window show > Drop down > set other.
    At least finder will open with the folder you want.

    Thanks Ashka,
    I had looked at that. I actually have my Grades folder in the sidebar. The main annoyance is when I am importing a homework assignment from one class into another. When I go to "import", it always reverts back to Documents, even though the last folder opened was Grades. It actually shows Grades for a split second, but then switches quickly to Documents. I've written to the developer, but I was checking here to see if anyone had seen a similar issue with opening files or importing.
