Scenario is a user who works on a project, project files are saved in one project folder. User creates a text files, saves it to ~/my_projects/2019/commercial/projectABC/projecttext1.odt.
Creates a second text file - again has to navigate from his default folder (often it is ~/Documents) to ~/my_projects/2019/commercial/projectABC/.
User creates a calculation, again navigates to ~/my_projects/2019/commercial/projectABC/ to save project_calculation.ods.
User creates a presentation, again navigates to ~/my_projects/2019/commercial/projectABC/.
User creates web content, again navigates to~/my_projects/2019/commercial/projectABC/.
Other applications will remember the place where I saved the last file and offer to save the next file created there. I think this behaviour makes a lot of sense, and I'd want it in LibO as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a file, save it in a folder
2. create a new file, save it - you have to navigate from the default save location to your recently used folder
You always are offered to save your file in the default location (normally ~/Documents)
I want the save file dialogue to offer the last saved folder.

I can reproduce that with 220.127.116.11.alpha0+

and I support this idea. At least until closing the whole instance of LibreOffice.
While we want to remember the last user choice in general (see Blocked), I'm not sure it's generally wanted here. One scenario is to open documents from one project/folder but the other is to switch and in this case the default path is okay. Could imagine, however, to keep the last choice as long the module is open. Meaning unless the Writer/Calc/* document is not closed the path will be remembered. (Haven't tested if it works like this right now.)
In case this is actually disputable, I suggest a control, so user can adopt LibO's behaviour to their needs.

I do support this idea.
