Remember previously selected Export folder on a per-project basis

Recommended Posts

If the Export Audio option would remember the previously selected folder on a per-project basis, it would save a few seconds for every export. I tend to always export a project to the same folder, during the project lifetime. It should persist between restarts of Cakewalk. And, the functionality could be optional, as it might not suit everyone's workflow.

Collectively, for all exports all users do, it would save days. 🤗

I agree it's a pain

All you have to do is Choose your desired format upon export. 

TIP: Create subfolders for each format like - e.g. "Stem folders, Wav Files, MP3" etc. and every time you export a certain format - only that folder will appear.

Cheers Will but I don't think that's what the OP meant. 

Personally I want all files to remain within the respective Project folder , it's much easier for me to keep everything together that way.  i.e all Project audio, CWP files, rough mixes and Final Deliverables are all in one umbrella Folder.

This is not what the OP wants, because

  1. it is not per project basis
  2. it affects also the load of audio files, there is no explicit "export" folder
