Is it possible to change the default save folder in Marked?

Hi --

All of the files I am previewing with Marked are in my Dropbox folder. I'd like Marked's "save" functionality to default to that location, or at least to the same folder as the source file sits. Is it possible to configure this?

    It's not right now, but I could add it. Where does it default to for you right now? I'm running Default Folder X and have it set to snap back to my most-recent folder so my tests are inaccurate at the moment.

    Right now it looks like it always goes to My Documents. My preferred design would be:

    • By default, save the PDF (or whatever) to the same directory as the source markdown sits.
    • Have a preference to override this and e.g. automatically go to DropBox, My Docs, or some other target directory.

    I'll work on this. At least the first option should happen, and I'll consider an additional preference item.
