it is not a bug it is a feature The idea is to use an own working dir, no matter what directory is set in the analyis solver object. Thie is quite important for debugging ... Before this feature my linux machine started to have C:/ path names when opening files from others If you would like to use the solver setting just do not activate the working dir in preferences.fandaL wrote: ↑Tue Feb 19, 2019 9:41 amIs this a small bug or intended behavior?
Open example FemCalculixCantilever3D and before writing inp file select the working directory inside Mechanical analysis (i.e. CalculiXccxTools object). Contrary to my expectations it is written to the working directory defined in Edit – Preferences – FEM.
When using new solver example FemCalculixCantilever3D_newSolver (i.e. solverCalculiX object), it works as expected.

read carefully ... "Working directory general FEM solver frame work" (found a typo in gui ) and "Working directory ccx tools" solver! It depends which solve you gone use.
I see your point.
