I have (and have had) many different sets of books kept under gnucash. 
For this reason, I am totally unclear what problem users seem to be having.

A set of books under gnucash is a file. When you create a file (not 
specific to gnucash) you give it a name, possibly/usually including a 
file extension indicating type, and specify a location for it (directory 
aka file folder). For example, when you crate a new set of books, the 
first "save" should be a "save as" and at that time you would get to 
specify what you want for the name of this file and where you want it to be.

Is THAT the problem?

Are people saying that they have a problem with multiple books, storing 
in multiple locations never doing this? Simply doing a "save" (that 
first time) accepting the default name and default location? << these 
would always be the same >>
