Sigil files go where?

Just started playing around and created some stuff on Sigil. When I saved it, the file planted itself in my 'Downloads' folder. What shall I do to tell Sigil to, go find its own folder?

Maybe its my setup? Still haven't quite got used to Windows 10.

Glad you got it sorted. Probably the last folder you opened or saved-to was the Download folder.

I just have a megafolder called Online (because it started as my working folder for building websites). Beneath that is a folder called Books, and beneath that is a folder for each book. So whatever I am working with -- Sigil, Word, OpenOffice Writer, DOS Wordstar, Photoshop -- I go to the same spot.

A great thing about Sigil is that, unlike every other software I've worked with, it has an option to Save A Copy. As long as the program stays open (which for me is often days at a time) it will put that Copy into my Dropbox folder. And I never confuse the working version with the Copy version. Every other program requires that I Save As, so I have to remember whether I am working in Dropbox or in Online/Books/ThisHereBook.

Sigil saves 'Opened books" back where they were.
Save As will ask (and leaves the Original in place)
