Are there settings that can be set to have as default (1) the folder of the file currently open, and (2) the old extension? I don't know whether the (cumbersome, in my view) need to first duplicate, then save plays a role with the first of these difficulties.

You may find the macro menu item "Save Source As" does what you want. It's available at


and meets conditions (1) and (2). You can easily modify the script (it's an AppleScript) to change the default displayed for the new name.
