[Chimera-users] Open file interface suggestion

a related suggestion would be some buttons on the file IO dialogs that would put the path directory at some fixed locations.  Currently it comes up semi-random; i.e. chimera session file is located at /a/b/c , but file IO might come up /a/y/z, usually where the last session was located.  Using a 'cd' command does not correct it.


IO path to 'cd'

IO path to root

IO path to what is saved as a user preference.

IO path of last session, or scroll list of past sessions.

The latter two would be helpful in organizing projects

I have been using your software for a while. I love the features and general user interface. There is one thing that drives me nuts, though. The side-by-side list interface when I go to open files.A window-based one would be much easier. Is there an option for that that I am not seeing? If not, I suggest adding the option. Thank you for your software!
