Add a "set default export location" option
Users may want to always export to the same folder as their project, or their media, or any other standard location. We can set default folders for import/ingest, captured video and audio, etc, why not default export folders?!?

Yes!!!!!! Unfortunately, instead of fixing this, Adobe gave us a poorly designed Quick Export tool in v14.5 that also suffers from this same, insanely bad issue!
The Pr team's list of priorities is clearly out of whack!
Adobe, please fix what's already there rather than introduce new tools that seem to introduce more new issues than benefits!
Here's a quick example of just how poorly designed the Quick Export tool is:
5. Last and worst of all, the same issue posted above by the OP.

Agreed with others here. Export to current project directory by default makes way more sense than a previous location from two weeks ago... Please give us the option!

Yes! I'm usually working with between 3 and 8 video projects at any one time. Each time I export a video, it defaults to the last export location of the last video. So I open Project X, make changes, export draft, and I then have to navigate to the folders for / Project X video / Export / - and save here. Then later, I open Project Y, make changes, export, and it automatically takes me to Project X / Export /. I have to navigate to / Project Y / Export / before I can save.
... and so on for every project. It's a little tedious when it could be made easier by either of the following:
- Default export folder can be made to be the same folder as the project is saved in.
- Default export folder can be made to be the folder that was last used as a save location by this project.
Really look forward to this little tweak.

Should be a no-brainer.
It doesn't make any sense at all the way it its now.
Why would anyone want to export to the previous project's export folder??

Yes, this is very annoying to always have to change the export folder when... duh, I OBVIOUSLY want it to be in the same place as my CURRENT project, not some random folder from some previous project.

me too! the default folder is chosen god-knows-how, and makes for a few extra clicks each export. quite annoying. would love a solution

Yes, i would love to have this option in Premiere Pro. :)
It is already aviable in Adobe Media Encoder by going to Edit > Preferences > General and then check the Specify output file destination and select the desired folder and i use that feature all the time.
Since it is already present in Media Encoder i see no reason to not add that feature to Premiere Pro as well. It would be a great feature to have in Premiere Pro.
