having problems with "save as"

at one point while saving a job the whole program froze and then crashed on me.  Now everytime I try to save using the "save as" I don't get the folder options anymore.  In the command line it tells me to enter file format and then type in where I want it to go.  Also noticed this everytime I try to open a job too.  Has anyone else encountered this problem?

It's a common problem.  The software shuts off the display of the File dialogs while it's working with files in the background.  If it crashes at the wrong point then it never resets back to the normal operation.

 

Change the FILEDIA variable setting to 1 to fix it.
