So you do it the same way as I do. I agree it's less than slick, but on
the other hand, major applications like Word work the same way. You
first navigate to a file you intend to work on, then you change that
file. The good thing about this is, that you can even save the file
in another location under another name. So you can keep two working
copies or even use the same patch for several pieces.
