Re: OS 10.8 Mountain Lion - drag and drop works... "save to" question

One other question that bugs me  is that when I "save to", the window default is always iCloud, and I want it saved on the desktop or some other folder, and have to select that every time I save.  Is there any way to make the "save to" default to some place other than iCloud ?

Thanks again for the drag and drop tip!  It is going to save some time and steps.  I did find that dragging more than four docs at a time was a little overkill, but four at a time is better than one at a time !

I just found this in the Apple forums, open up Terminal and type, or copy/paste this in:

defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSDocumentSaveNewDocumentsToCloud -bool false

That should do it.

Seems there's a lot of people asking the same thing.
