Does not not work on my install (fully clean install with latest patch applied). Never saves any file and dialog box for file saving shows randomly (ie, one time you pres the save menu and it shows, then you repeat the process and it doesn't and so on).
Here's another look at it. Because what just got explained is not accurate.
First of all, let's begin at the beginning. Lets say you play a scenario in the Pre WWI folder. Then you decide to make a new scenario so you go to the Scenario Editor. Because all of your newly created scenarios are supposed to be put into the Documents folder you make a folder for your new scenario there and name it New Scenario. Going back to the Scenario Editor and New Scenario. You begin by opening the Force Editor and creating a unit and you want to save it because you'll be using that same type of unit again and again. You leave the name 1st Cadre. Now you go to save it.
To save While having the Force Editor open you go to the File menu in the Menu Bar at the top of the Scenario Editor window. Click on the File menu so you get the drop down and one of the items is Save Unit as... So you click it and it takes you to the folder of the last scenario you played in Pre WWI in the Documents folder. That won't do. It's going to be a modern scenario. So you click on folders until you get to New Scenario and save it there.
After more editing and saving of units you need the 1st Cadre unit so you do the same thing you did to save the unit but instead of clicking on Save Unit As...you click on Open Unit. And you are back to the Pre WWI folder. Not the folder where your scenario is saved. In fact, every unit you saved is in the WRONG FOLDER. You have to physically move them all to the correct folder, New Scenario. So you do that. Why would anyone have the units in the wrong folder right?
So now you go to Open Unit to add a 1st Cadre unit to your OOB and go to the New Scenario folder. Ah there are your unit files just where you moved them to and just where you need them. Great. You click on the 1st Cadre to insert one of them into your OOB and...nothing happens. It fails to insert any unit. Why? Because the program is looking in folder of THE LAST SCENRIO YOU PLAYED in Pre WWI!!! Not the scenario you are working on at all. It is impossible for you to insert any units from your New Scenario folder.
So then you realize in order to access your New Scenario folder while editing you have to copy a playable scenario into the New Scenario folder and play it. Only after you open that playable scenario that you put in the New Scenario folder in the game and then go to the Scenario Editor will saving or opening your units or your scenario ever work properly. Only then will the game program immediately look in the proper folder for anything having to do with the New Scenario scenario you are working on. So any time you play a scenario you can't work on any New Sceanrio scenario project without first opening that playable scenario that you put in the New Scenario folder then going to the Scenario Editor.
But hey, don't mind me, I'm just throwing a tantrum.
