Documents folder error

For some reason, OOo 3.1.1 Portable insists on saving everything to E:\PortableApps\OpenOfficePortable\Data\Documents instead of the default E:\Documents created by the PA Menu (I'm using 2.0 beta 3).

Yes, I've tred reinstalling OOo Portable from scratch (completely deleting the E:\PortableApps\OpenOfficePortable\*.* folder and starting over with a fresh download)

E:\ in this case is my USB hard drive

EDIT: Clarification: I can still navigate to the E:\Documents folder from the Save As dialog, but it always starts in E:\PortableApps\OpenOfficePortable\Data\Documents.

The Open dialog starts in E:\Documents like it should

Yep

same here. Seems to be a bug in the launcher...

Same problem

I also use version 3.1.1.
I can change the folder in "extras" "options", but when I restart OO Portable it's once again resetted to "\Data\Documents" as mentioned above.

Will there be a fix for this? Or will it be corrected in the next version (3.2)?

Same problem

I have the same problem; I also get an error message about the Documents\Data folder not existing.

I get the error too

I get that error message too (as a temporary fix, I just manually created the folder on my drive, just to get it to shut up)

I'm going to assume this will be patched with 3.2 (which will come out when it's ready, no sooner)
