What I said in my previous mail was wrong. Sorry!
The point is if you open a file which is in for example
C:\Neuer Ordner\Neuer Ordner2\Neuer Ordner3\Neuer
Ordner4\Neuer Ordner5\Neuer Ordner6
and then try to save the file in another folder the error happens
but only if you choose another 'place' from the list on the left side.
Choose "Save a Copy" and instantly select another place.
