Description tgoessi 2005-11-29 09:31:40 UTC
When a file is opened or saved to a work-directory by an oo-application. Then 
if a file is opened with the open dialog by another oo-application, the open 
dialog points to the directory, where a former file operation with another 
application is made.
Eg. When I have a directory D:/Text and I store a text-file in it with the oo-
writer, then if I want to open a file by oo-calc, the open-dialog points to 
D:/Text although I saved a calc-file formerly in a D:/Calc directory with oo-
The open dialogs of the different oo-applications should manage the directories 
separately to make it easier when separate directories for each oo-application 
are used.

according to I 
reassign this issue to requirements and set the status to new

I agree. It would be really nice, if there was the possibility to set a default
working directory for each component (writer, calc etc.) separately.
