Description thsch 2004-09-07 23:15:15 UTC
Picking File locations using the chooser is
sometimes an annoyance:
In many the cases, the file dialog points to a
standard location like
'My Documents' in XP, even if there is obviosly a
more sensible choice.

E.g: the wizard for creating a new project from
existing sources:

The Project Folder in the lower tab allready
suggest a location for the project,
and is wellbehaved, in that it opens the
filchooser pointing to that directory.

You would expect, that the file entries in the
upper half would start from that
position, to find sources and testsources.

Instead, they start at 'My Documents'.
The natural choice would be the directory of the
current project.

Passing to Hrebejk as well for further evaluation.
