File Save As Dialog Window Saves to random path

Hi All

I am trying to save a PDF to the same folder the xaml file is located. The file name is based on text and a variable. When I use the type into tool with the full file path, it tries to save in a random location based on the folder that the dialog window opened in. See the picture

Has anyone seen this?

I am facing this too.

The work around here that I have had to implement is to use Send Hotkey and delete the pre - populated file name, and then type out the whole file path after the file name is deleted. What is happening is what is typed is ignored, and then the file is saved as the pre populated file name in the most recent open location for that user. Deleting the file name solved this for me.
