    issue:
    Notepad++ > Settings > Preferences > Default Directory > Follow Current Document
    None of the settings will make Notepad++ directory follow the current document.
    Directory is always the last one used. Restarting Notepad++ has no effect.

    Apparently this setting is causing others before similar issues.

    I don’t have the answer but if you search through this forum using the 2 words Default directory you will find several posts. Hopefully one might help you.

    I’ve always found this choice to be the most reliable and (thus luckily) the one that makes the most sense to want to use.

    Maybe there is a “disconnect” about how you think this is supposed to work? Maybe walk us through an example? Otherwise, I think it is working fine for the vast majority of users, so I don’t think there’s anything else anyone can do to help.
