Photoshop: Save for Web and general dialog boxes on Mac too large - do not save changed size

When doing a large batch of images this gets hugely annoying. Otherwise it's a meh type issue... but as I work on large batches...

The issue is this, open an image, save as... or open image and save for web - click save. The dialog boxes that pop up to locate where to save the file are full height of the screen. On an 27" 5k display - that is one massive dialog box. I am able to resize it, but Photoshop does not store the resized version. The next time I open a photo and start again - the dialog is back to full size.

I know this sounds trivial, but the mouse distance adds up and adds to fatigue and frankly is a bad user experience. Please store the dialog box position and size somewhere - or at least give us the option to save them once we place them where we want them. I know they are OS generated, however there must be some way to set this - other apps behave, Photoshop does not.

Hi enduser,

I'm not able to reproduce this. Could you make a video capture of the behavior you're seeing?

I tried from my Macbook Pro - but there it worked as expected. Difference - MBP is running El Capitan and my iMac is running Sierra. I cannot do it on the iMac as the video size is too large. It could also be the size of the screen that is causing this issue. Not sure if you can replicate it with this additional info - I hope so as recording this otherwise is going to be a huge pain. Thanks!

Is El Capitan Mac up to date with the latest updates for El Cap? I vaguely remember they had issues with open dialog resizing during the OSes original release.
