Feature request : remember directory in Mac OS

Asked by Martin Van der Linden on 2016-04-16

Everytime one tries to open a document with latexdraw, the explorer brings you back to the root directory instead of bringing you to either (i) the directory in which the current document is edited or (ii) the last visited directory.

That's inconvenient because it means one has to re-navigate to the relevant directory all the way from the root. It's not much, but it is still 15 to 20 seconds everytime one wants to open a new file.

If that can be fixed easily it would be great.

This is with Mac OS El Capitan and LD version 3.3.2, but it was already the case with other OS and versions of latex draw (does it also apply to Windows?).

Note : I've tried just opening the .svg files with latexdraw straight from the Finder, but the Finder does not let me do that.

Indeed, this problem is really annoying. I tried to fix it several times but I do not know why but it is still not completely fixed. Maybe a MacOS issue. I will look at that soon.

I fixed the problem.
Can you check if the new version is ok for you? To do so, you can use the following development version.

Seems to be working great, thanks a lot.

I'll let you know if I encounter any further problem in the long run.

Thanks arno_b, that solved my question.
