On older versions of Studio, after you publish a report to server for the first time, on subsequent publishing you didn't need to navigate the entire path for the report on the server. The Studio publishing wizard would have the path already selected for you. Which was a time saver because depending on the server folder hierarchy it could save lots of clicks. Also, it prevented the overriding of the wrong report by mistake.
Recent versions of Studio are unable to select the publishing path automatically. It will always start from the root of server. This makes the "auto publish" feature (when you modify and save a report) a pain to use.
