Suggested Improvement - better use of project folders

I use Camtasia to demonstrate my software and teach people how to use it.  It is fantastic, well worth the license cost.  I'm currently using Camtasia 8.6 with Windows 7.

I may go year or two without using Camtasia, then have a burst of video production for a couple of months, then back to programming.  I start by creating a new folder for the new video, I then start writing the script (in Word), preparing one or several PPT's, and doing some screen captures.  I want all of these to go into this new folder, but if I forget to use Save AS for each new kind of object they end up scattered in whatever folders Camtasia previously used.  I have often overwritten old objects accidentally, and I've had to clean up a mess more than once.

I'd like the dialog to work like this: -
1.    Whenever you open a CamProj, its folder becomes the default for PPT recording and screen capture.  Many messes have resulted from my working on two videos at once, and then finding that a recording has overwritten an object in the wrong folder.

2,    On starting a new Camtasia project I'd like the dialog to navigate to the folder that I want with option to create a new one (the standard Windows Find Folder dialog would be great) and create an empty CamProj object in that folder.  Currently you don't create a CamProj until you've done screen capture or recorded a PPT.
