    How Can I save a document in microsoft office word 2008 into a specific subfolder within my documents. When I try to save the doc to my documents it does not show subfolders within documents. Help?

    Not used Office, but assuming the Save box is similar to most other apps..

    Is there not a little down arrow to the right of the "File Name.doc" box that allows you to expand the box to show the full set of viewing options.. Ie Grid, List, Coloums, New folder, file type..

    I'm sure I'm not using "Mac speek" so more superior Mac users can now put me in my place ;)

    Hahaha Come on, guys! I've had my mac for over 2 years now and I didn't know about that. . it would have come in handy a few times :(


    What I was doing was dragging the subfolder into the finder sidebar, then saving there as everything in the sidebar is in the list with "documents" "music" "Pictures" etc..

    Wow! I'm no Mac expert by any means. I never knew of this option either. It will come in handy from now on! Thanks to gilbert1020 for asking the question and to r.j.s (as always!) for the fine visual. Jeez, for so long I've been saving to Documents and then going into Documents to put it in the proper sub-folder. Now it can go where it needs to right from the get-go.
