Save to Disk Question

Is there a way to set things up so when I click the save to disk button, it will automatically save to a specific directory without me having to choose it each and every time?

Alternatively, to answer what appears to be a question about using the "Save to disk" functionality, no you don't seem to be able to set a default directory to save files to. At least there's nothing visible on the "Save to disk" preferences screen.

Code:
myname/books/{title}-{Authors}
is a valid (composite) template that will create the path in the selected folder. (In XP, the last folder is remembered. This would become the root of your path )

If you use "Connect to folder" instead, it seems to remember the folder used last time.

You can also drag from the calibre window and drop it wherever you want.
