'Export as' path is broken - defaults to last folder used instead of psd location

The 'Export as' path is broken.

Photoshop defaults to exporting in the last folder used instead of psd location. 

When handling multiple projects at once, which any professional designer in the industry will, it's really time consuming and inefficient. 

In previous versions of photoshop or any of the other adobe programs, the default location would always be wherever the PSD was located, which would help keep all the project files in the same folder. 

Please, this is an urgent issue. It's been broken for quite a few months and it's really time consuming.

Please look into it as soon as you are able. 

Thank you

Sometimes it is best to examine one's assumptions about what is perceived as a problem or bug, to make sure that the real source is not to be found to be a result of lack of knowledge. Some posters in this forum are too quick to fault Photoshop and Adobe; often a more knowledgeable writer will point to the changes and settings that have been misunderstood.   In the IT Support field, we often would encounter that; my Techs would write up their service report with lines such as "Problem exists between  chair and  keyboard...." That was sometimes abbreviated with an acronym: PEBCAK.
