So I've had my MacBook for a week today, and one thing I haven't yet wrapped my head around is saving files. After writing up something in Pages, I see only the option to save to Documents, Applications, Downloads etc. So after I save I file I need to go into Finder and move it to it's proper directory.

For example, I need to save to: Documents/Work/X - where X one of another 6 or so folders containing documents.

I'm sure OS X is capable of this, just I'm a little to thick to find it myself.

Any help is appreciated. :thumbup:

Click the arrow next to the filename when saving, it will expand.

Click the little down arrow next to the "Save As" text box, and that will open a window where you can navigate to where you'd like to save the file :)
