The latest update of Photoshop to Photoshop CC 2019 from a couple of days ago, caused several bugs within the "Export As.." tool. 


1. Export As - defaults to png every time, where it used to default to whatever format you had last used. That was really helpful and a time saver, now this ads a lot of time to the workflow.

2. Export As - defaults to exporting to the last export destination. It used to default to exporting where your psd was located, which made organizing a lot easier, especially when handling multiple projects at once. 

3. Export As - multiple sizes within a document (such as @2x, @1x, @tab, @mob) has several issues. 3.1: It is not resizing effects properly, effects and light leaks don't scale. 3.2: When leaving a blank suffix when setting up your export sizes, it defaults to adding the suffix to the file name; it used to just not add a suffix. This ads time to the workflow as well.

Indeed!
I am experiencing the same issues!
I hope this gets fixed soon!
It makes my daily workflow sooooo much more of a hassle!
I have had to downgrade my version of PS until this is fixed.

I wrote about this too, but yours is more detailed. It's basically a downgrade overall.
There is an option in the settings that it should obey regarding the save location. It's a hassle having to locate the working directory for every project.

You also can't use the keyboard on it anymore. You used to be able to press Enter to Export right away. Now you actually have to click the button to export.

And the preview at zoomed out levels is much worse, showing a pixelated and blurry image instead of just blurry like before.

And you can also just plain drop in HTML and other files into the window! Isn't that very unsafe?
