Impossible to create the css and js files with Lucid 3

Hello everybody!

As the title of the post suggests it, I can't create the two necessary files at the very beginning of the process. I am using RapidWeaver 7.5 and the problem is that the HTML files are on the server itself and not on my computer. So, I have to use the "Open server ..." command in the File menu of Lucid 3, which works fine, I land indeed in the home folder on my server and everything is ok. However, when I try to create the css and the js files, Lucid insists on creating them in a folder on my computer. I have no way to tell Lucid that the folder where my index file is, is on a server. So I keep getting messages likes the 2 screen captures below.

Has anyone an idea how I could direct Lucid towards my index folder on the server?
Many thanks in advance for your replies.

    Hi Joerg,
    That's weird, if you're connecting to a server, those "Choose..." buttons
    should not be there.

    I just tried it on my machine, and I was able to create the lucid.css and
    lucid.js files on our server, so I'm not sure why it's not working on yours.

    Could you email me at gt@theescapers, and we'll try to sort this out? As
    we're dealing with servers, I don't want to be discussing
    hosts/usernames/passwords on the open forum.
