In chat, I saved an attached document from a project folder and edited it. Why is the document saved into the 'temp' folder? Why can I not save the document back into the 'project' folder?

If you choose ‘Open with’ and continue editing a file, the file is going to be downloaded to the ‘temp’ folder of your system. If you want to make any changes on that file, the changes will be saved in the ‘temp’ folder.
