Title

specify "insert file" path to directory only

Post

Is it possible, when setting up a button scripted to Insert File, to open only the directory from which to chose the file.

FMP 11, on a mac. On individual records for different fields I link to files from different, but specific, Folders. For example, a link to a resume is always in the .../Resume/ folder; a link to work is in the .../Samples/ folder. 

The Specify File dialogue requires a file name. I guess my question is: Is there an acceptable wild card that will land you in the right directory and stop? It seems silly, but it's kind of a nuisance to check where you are, back out, move down the tree, etc when switching from one insert to the next. No, the file name conventions are not consistent enough to build a variable.
