Habits are one solution to the problem.  

I rarely see the file open/save dialog because I open everything from my
desktop.  I create new files (from the context sub-menu using Templates)
in the folder where I want them to reside.  I double-click the file in
most cases, but if I want to add a file to an existing window, I just
drag it to the editor/viewer.

In the save dialog, I save only to the desktop or a bookmarked location.
I only use the save dialog to fork a document.
