Blueprints get added to Personal folder

I have a couple situations where my Blueprints get added to my Personal folder, which is not the action I'd like. I've emailed Wrike about these situations, and while these are the expected actions, I don't think they're idea. Wrike encouraged me to make this post to see if others in the community have similar feedback.

1. Clicking the "+" button to create a Blueprint while in the Dashboard/Inbox/Calendar. I am in one of these 3 areas 90% of the time I'm using Wrike. When I do this, the task by default gets added to my Personal folder, and I don't have the option to add it anywhere else while creating the Blueprint. Instead, after creating, I have to go to my Personal folder to find it, open it, and change its location. I understand the intended use is that you are in the correct folder/project where you want to create the Blueprint, then when you click "+", it will add it to your current location, but that takes a lot of clicks to get to the correct folder, and that is not how I've set up my Wrike folders/projects to be used.

2. Creating from Blueprint within the Blueprint folder, and I've already selected a default location next to "When creating from a blueprint, add this task to:". In this case, that location is selected in the blueprint task. When I go to Create from Blueprint for this task, the Location appears empty in the pop up. I don't choose a location in this pop up, since I already have a default location in the Blueprint task. Then when created, in addition to that default location, it STILL gets added to my Personal folder, because I didn't choose a location in the pop-up. This should be smart enough to know that a default location is selected. Now I have to go find the task created and then remove it from Personal.

Related to these situations, I also wish that after you create a Blueprint, there is an option to go straight to the task you just created! I find it so strange to create tasks and then for the box to disappear, and I have to go dig to find what I've just created.

Thanks everyone, hope this feedback makes sense!

I'm running into the same issue/request with #1.  I understand the default location being Personal, but would like the ability to change it. Currently when creating a project or folder using the "+" button, you have the ability to update the location.
