Every time you want to open a drawing, or attach external references, insert drawing as block or want to create a block, you will have a Current Folder item on the left of your file selection dialog box (in the custom places area). Thanks to JTB Current Folder, this item will bring your active drawing's path, which is often some clicks afar, to just 1 click away at your finger tip. This folder shortcut will dynamically change depending on the location of the current drawing you have open.
