EAC Cue sheet location and file paths

It's been years since I ripped a CD, but I just downloaded EAC 1.6 and installed it over the version I'd previously had installed. Seems to have picked up all of the old options ok. Ripping a test CD, I find one thing that I don't recall working like this before.

I have the extraction directory set to "D:\Rip\". When I rip a cd, say 'Anthology' by 'Ray Charles', EAC creates the expected directory structure.
D:\Rip\Ray Charles\Anthology

Audio files are correctly placed in that folder and upon completion, EAC places the log file in the same folder. But when I create a CUE sheet, it places the file in the root extraction folder, D:\Rip and the file references are relative to that folder. For example
FILE "Ray Charles\Anthology\01 Hit The Road Jack.wav" WAVE

Is it possible to generate the cue sheet in the audio folder, with file references containing no path?
FILE "01 Hit The Road Jack.wav" WAVE

The way I do it, I don’t have EAC auto-create the directory. First I detect gaps, then I generate the cue sheet. When it asks me where I want to save the cue sheet, that’s when I manually create my desired directory. Hit save. Then when I start the rip, it automatically selects the directory I just created and already saved my cue sheet in.

Thanks. I'll give that a shot. I recall that when I was ripping hundreds of discs I had a pretty set system and order of operations. That could be what I was missing.

I do it in the same order as MrRom92 (although sometimes I create the folder before anything is done with EAC and then locate the dr when it asks where to place the cue sheet). Then when you initiate the rip/extraction it will automatically select the same dir as previously selected for the cue.
