    Change default path for selecting picture import

      Change default path for selecting picture import

      Post

            

           What I need to do:

           Open the dialog for importing a picture

           Open in a parent folder one of the subfolders 

           Mark the picture to be imported

           Import in a container field

            

           Using the import function without a path works fine except that it always open that folder as default, I worked with before. Like if I saved something before with MS Word in ~Documents/letters then filemaker will also use this path. I have tried to import in my script first a dummy picture with ~Pictures/fmPictures/dummy.jpg, delete it and have as next step the import without a path … it jumps again to ~documents/letters.

            

           My question:

           Where is the last used path stored in Mac OSX 10.8? Is there a way to overwrite this using filemakerscripts or applescript?

           Or is there a way to declare as a global the folder fmPictures as the default path for open dialogs?
