update will not save new project in correct folder

Well, the subject line says it all. I’m trying to create a new project. The “new project” popup comes with a suggested folder for saving the new project, but I want it in a different folder. I navigate to the right folder but Scrivener apparently wants me to pick one of the existing sub-folders in that folder; it will not let me save the new one in the main folder. Never had a problem creating a new project in my folder of choice before. I just installed the new version, so I assume that may be related.

Also, while I’m up, please please PLEASE enlarge the list of existing Recent Projects. I was so much hoping for this in the new version. Instead, a brand new frustration. :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
