When I save a new file or want to open an existing file, I want the file dialog to open in the directory of the file I last opened.

How can I get libreoffice to do that?

You can set a directory for all stores, not the last one. Select Tools>Options>LibreOffice>Paths under Working directory.

Thanks. So! I will make this a feature request.

I'm using Version: (x64). The tools options paths bring up a dialog box with all kinds of paths but nothing labeled "working directory" as an option. I change working folders a lot and need my work saved where I am currently and not where I was last - seems a silly default, so how do I change it? what am I missing?
