Set default Save As folder?

Andrew Stivelman
Is there a way to set a default folder as the destination when clicking Save As?  It is kludgy to continually have to change the location each time the file is ready to be exported from the .xcf to another graphic format.  Thanks.

/* Priority of default paths for Export:
   *
   *   1. Last Export path
   *   2. Path of import source
   *   3. Path of XCF source
   *   4. Last path of any save to XCF
   *   5. Last Export path of any document
   *   6. The default path (usually the OS 'Documents' path)

You can add directories to the file chooser:

Go to the parent of the directory you would like to add to the file chooser.

Select the directory.

Right click on the left pane and select add.

There is an edit option so you can change the name that is displayed.
