I cannot tell how much I love using LightBurn for all of my projects. It is easy to use and has all features and functions that I need for my laser projects. So, thank you to the fantastic team who put it together.
I am converting all my previously created vectors/projects from VCarve to LightBurn and at some point it becomes so time consuming to navigate through all directories to get back to where I originally opened my SVG file in L.B. I have been in software development for a long time too and I think it would make sense to set a “working directory” in LightBurn. I another word, if I open an SVG file in a directory c:\abc, I should be able to save it back in the same location and not to go back to the previous folders or “My Document” folder in the “Save” or “Save As” dialog box. Also, if I decide to save this in a project, I would like to be able to save it within the same directory and not to have to go through all steps to navigate back to the original folder. Finally, the same issue happens when I am trying to import this file to my Art Library.
The only time that this feature works correctly is when you actually “Preview” your project and click on “Save Image” button. Most of the time, it would let you save it within the same directory where you initiated the project or opened your vectors.
I am currently spending the majority of my time going through this so I would appreciate it if you or someone could suggest a way or possibly add this feature in future releases.
