Default Saving to wrong folder?

If I manually rename a folder before downloading within JD, the video is saved to a folder which is not my set Download Folder... I think it had been set as so for a specific project in the past, but no longer.

Hi,
I'm unable to reproduce this.
Are you using the "Subfolder by packagename" feature?
https://support.jdownloader.org/Know...ackage-feature
Does it work as intended if you disable that setting?

Please provide a log and example URLs.

omfg there's a way to turn OFF the gawdawful "feature" which always places each and every individual video into its own freaking annoying subfolder, thereby making me go in and manually move them each and every time?!? And the setting ISN'T in the "download management" section, where one would expect to find all things download-related, but rather in some silly-name sub-tab? Do you know how many dozens of hours of my life have been wasted? This should really be OFF by default.

Sure - there are a lot of settings for customizations in JD.

It shouldn't do that.
Please provide example URLs which can be used to reproduce this issue with items which JD groups into single packages.

What do you mean by "Download management"? Settings -> General?

That is your opinion. If enough other users share this one we are willing to change this.

Well in the ideal case you haven't wasted more than 30 minutes, didn't find a solution, then you've contacted us, waited for my answer and solved your problem. Doesn't sound too frustrating to me.
Afaik this is not a question that I see too frequently here so I suppose that either the default setting is fine for most of all users or a lot of our users find the support article I linked on their own.

This is one of those settings which id say its close to 50:50
Default used to be off/disabled and created a lot of support issues and it was enabled by default on new installs. And most likely has the similar amount of support queries generated... so doomed if you do and doomed if you don't situation. I would say the German userbase is heavily for pro, my personal view it should never be enabled by default... and work on either installer wizard (talked about but never implemented into the installer) to define defaults (new installs), or config conversions (0.9 to 2.0) as settings where present in previous versions. These days there should not be these conversions from old to new as the timeframe since is too lengthy.

You should have found a solution either by support articles or via search on the forum, but with the forum you most likely need the correct keyword to search with, or with support.jdownloader.org but still would need to approach it from similar mind set to the titles or descriptions.

I've just recently also talked about this with Jiaz.

My approach would be different:
Looking at other applications like "Telegram", they're using a different default download directory e.g.:
Code:
[DefaultOSDownloadPath]\Telegram Desktop
Now if JDownloader was doing the same, that would already be better.
This means that even if you were to have hundrets of loose files, you wouldn't cause a huge chaos in your general download folder.
E.g.:
Code:
[DefaultOSDownloadPath]\JDownloader\HundretsOfFilesHere
Then, one step further, make sure that by default only multi-item packages are put into a subfolder by default and it should be fine for most of all users.
