Destination selection selects files, not a folder

description

VidCoder Version: 1.5.25.0 Beta (x86)

Expected:
 The user will be able to select a folder from the Destination Selection dialogue box.
Actual:
 The user cannot select a folder from the Destination Selection dialogue box; only file selection (or creation) is available (the dialogue box is a "Save As" form).  No workaround available; if the user manually edits the Destination Selection text box in the application and selects the "Enter/Return" key, the program appends ".mp4" to the folder location provided.  If the folder location manually provided ends in a backslash ("\"), the application will remove the backslash and append ".mp4".
Steps:
1.) Open the application
2.) Select the "Browse..." button next to the "Destination:" textbox
3.) Attempt to select a folder and select "Save"
4.) Observe the "Save" button is not functional
5.) Select a ".mp4" file
6.) Select "Save"
7.) Observe ".mp4" is saved as the "Destination:" textbox display
8.) Edit the "Destination:" textbox by selecting the "Pencil" icon on hover
9.) Edit the textbox to display a folder location (with or without backslash as suffix)
10.) Select "Enter/Return" on the keyboard
11.) Observe ".mp4" is appended (and if backslash was suffixed, backslash is removed)

Also, selection chosen does not change output. Video(s) being encoded are saved to the desktop, regardless of "Destination:" textbox contents.

NOTE: The fact that it saves to the desktop may be a remnant of my previous selection for output prior to update. Not sure if default output folder is current user's desktop.

You want Tools -> Options -> File Naming -> Default Folder

So what is the function of the "Destination:" textbox? It lacks all functionality. It resets on application reboot.

If you want to rename the file or do a one-off encode to a different folder.
