Description Nate Graham 2016-11-26 21:36:40 UTC
On Fedora 25+GNOME 3.22, the last save location is not remembered across documents/launches.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any LibreOffice app.
2. Make a document, and save it to some deeply-nested location.
3. Make another document, and do the same thing again.

Actual Results:  
The save panel shows the default location (~/Documents), and you need to manually navigate to the desired location.

Expected Results:
When you save the second document, the save panel displays the location where you saved the previous one.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes.

Additional Info:
This happens with both the system save/load panels as well as the LibreOffice-specific ones.

Are you sure, that this has worked in the past? But as I can confirm it, I will change the status to "NEW" and version to "Inherited from OOo".

I don't know if it ever worked in the past. I can confirm that the problem is seen in the Mac version, too (

However, the accepted answer to this question implies that at some point in the past this did work:

But perhaps that person was mistaken.
Comment 3 Nate Graham 2017-06-28 23:14:49 UTC
This may be an artifact of the GTK file pickers (or the way they're invoked), since I just noticed that the correct behavior is seen when LibreOffice is run in a KDE environment where it uses the QT file pickers instead.
Comment 4 Nate Graham 2017-06-28 23:17:20 UTC
Please ignore that comment. In a KDE environment, the correct behavior is seen with the *open* dialog, but not the *save* dialog. The original bug is still seen in both cases.

Comment 7 Nate Graham 2018-08-20 11:36:49 UTC
Seems to be an upstream bug. We've found a fix in KDE Plasma:

Probably GTK need a similar change.
