Description Jens-D Doll 2022-02-11 09:42:09 UTC
When creating a new document or creating a PDF a file dialogue appears, which is hard to position. You cannot scroll to the top of the tree. It stops at position 2 or jumps back to the initial directory, its a bad component. Also for PDF the initial directory should be the last one chosen, but it's the one from the save dialogue.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open document
2. press button for PDF
3. the file dialogue appears

Actual Results:
it's positioned somewhere by old memory

Expected Results:
it should be positioned to the last directory used in that context

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

The PDF dialog not remembering the last location is in bug 147202.

About the other issues, can you please test again in a recent version of LibreOffice to see if it is still the case, and paste here the version information from Help > About LibreOffice?
Thank you!
