I'm totally embarrassed to be asking this question.... I'm new to Apple (iMac Intel) and for the life of me cannot find a way to save files to subfolders. For example, I've created several subfolders in my Home |Documents folder but when I try to save a file to one of these subfolders using say, uh, TextEdit, I can't get any deeper than the Documents folder. So I save it there and then user Finder to finally get it to the subfolder I want.
What totally obvious feature am I missing. As a looooooooooong time PC user I'm continually amazed at how intutive this machine is. I have to assume "user ignorance" but I've searched the various Help resources and still have no answer.
I know in TextEdit, when you "Save As" there is a little blue box to the right of the box where you name your Document. Click that and it will allow you to select what folder you want to place your document in.
