Description simon 2015-03-12 15:26:40 UTC
I use lots of LO documents at any time.  It would be nice if I was using a document and tried to open a file or save to file I could select "the same directory as this document" with one click.

At present it remembers the last directory that I was using.  This means as I flip between different documents I find myself spending a lot of time drilling through the directory structures to find the same directory locations again and again.

I run into the same problem with a number of different programs. Some programs and file browsers have 'Recent documents' or 'Recent places' saved, but such interfaces can always seem to benefit from improvement.
