When I set a custom DefaultSavePath, it is not choosen a default save path, it's only shown in the Most Recent List

    I'm sorry, I don't quite understand the problem here, could you describe the steps you took in a bit more detail?

    Hello,

    I'm sorry, my description was quit to simple. So here you will find a screencast of my problem:

    http://www.file-upload.net/download-1319589/AlbumArt-Downloader-Screencast.exe.html

    Step by step:

    1. I start AAD to find some Album Art for an Album (Jason Mraz in this example)
    2. AAD found something
    3. I set a custom save path to .\%preset%.%extension%
    4. I save a picture with a preset name (Front in this exemple)
    5. Woks PERFECTLY, right name, right place
    6. I close AAD
    7. I restart AAD to find another Album Art for another Album (Nickelback in this exemple)
    8. AAD found something
    9. When I try to save th picture my prefered default save path is not the one I've just set in step 3, but it's the "out-of-the-box" value

    My custom path is in the Most recent used, but I expected to have it always as default path.

    I hope you understand my English and my problem ;-)

    Best regards from Switzerland

    Ah, OK, I see where the confusion has come from.

    If you start a search from the File Browser, the default path to save to is automatically set to save the image into the path the File Browser has been told to search for images in.

    In order to get this to work the way you want it to, start AAD again, then in the file browser step (before clicking Get Artwork For Selection), click the "Options" link, then change the "Specify path to find images" box to read "%preset%.%extension%".

    That way, when you click the Get Artwork For Selection button, the search window that appears will have the default path set to the folder path that was in the file browser, plus "\%preset%.%extension%".
