Description m_potociar 2006-08-07 13:11:33 UTC
When opening new files the 'open file' dialog is opened usually pointing to the
directory not related to the project. Usually however the user wants to open a
file that is placed within (ore close to) the home directory of one of the
opened NB projects he/she is working on at present time.

Thus it would be nice if the 'open file' dialog contained a button (or a combo
box) that would allow for easy navigation to the home directory of any of the
currently opened NB projects (defaulting to the main NB project's home dir).
