I use the TextEdit app to keep a running log on my files.  I upgraded to a new computer that uses OSX 10.8.3 and now when I open a new TextEdit document I can no longer save it to a new file. I can only select iCloud, Dropbox, and/or the last few files I have opened.  I used to be able to save new TextEdits in Dropbox and scroll to the exact file I wanted to save the document or create a new folder within Dropbox.  Anyone know how to reset TextEdit's save feature to be able to create a new folder or at least be able to scroll to a folder within Dropbox? I looked through TextEdit Preferences and System Preferenes and could not find anything. Thanks!

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), TextEdit
