Description sheelos 2005-09-15 03:56:58 UTC
Hopefully I have posted this issue correctly, apologies if it's a repeat. I was
unable to find it previousely posted when I searched.

I am using OOo 1.9.122 (Beta 2) on windows XP SP2

When Defining the Paths using Tools>Options>General>Paths

Under the My documents section you can define the directory in which you would
like files to be Saved to using the "Save As" Function.

I believe there should be a selectable option to make this the location where
OOo can default to, when OPENING documents.

Currently, OOo looks in the directory where the last document was opened from on
a previous occasion. Allthough this is useful, I believe it would be nice to add
a Definable path feature for those who wish to use it.

You'll have an "home-button" when you use the own dialog under:
Tools - Options... - - General - Open/Save dialogs.
