Opening Files


I have found when the open file dialog box is open, when in a folder with many subdirectories, if you go into a subdirectory and the back up one level, the open dialog window takes you right to the beginning of the folder, as opposed to keeping the previously visited directory or subfolder highlighted. I find this very frustrating as my music folder contains thousands of subfolders and I have to go and re-find the folder or general area I was working in. This does not occur with other programs. Is it something that I could fix?

I cannot reproduce this on W10 with Audacity 2.1.1 (current released version).

I too have many sub-levels of directory for my project storage taxonomy - and for me when in the Open dialog it always backs up just the one level at a time.

So I’m confused by your report.
