Currently using OSX version 10.11.3. Prior to downloading El Capitan I had all the options that I'd see on the Finder side bar when I wanted to save a document. see screen shot: Finder Menu and I could drill into sub folders which allowed me to be very specific to where I saved documents. I now have a very limited number of options and I cant drill into sub folders see screen shot:.limited save as menu

I'd love if someone had a solution. I went into controll panel but nothing stood out to correct it.

  • This seems to be similar to the issue in that question, please try some of the solutions in there and report back if they don't work. – NetherLinks Feb 4 '16 at 21:36

Click the little down arrow next to the 'Save As' field. That will expand your options to show the Finder-like interface and expose extra controls like the checkbox that allows you to suppress hiding the file extension.
