Wish: io.FolderBrowser and remembering the folder

2 small wishes for the io.File nodes in Canvas:

1) Can we get a io.FolderBrowser please, which invokes the correct folder browser in Windows. In OS X you can select a file or a folder in the browser usually, but in Windows you can't and there is a separate window for both (Windows logic, ey :rage:)

2) Can io.Filebrowser please remember the folder of the file I have selected and open with that folder. Having to always browse to the same folder just to select another file is a real workflow killer. Right now it always opens the Fabric/bin folder.

Thanks for considering.

ps: I wonder if bugs and wishes should have their own category in the forum - posting it in the main Canvas Standalone category seems wrong, but couldn't find anywhere more appropriate.

    Hi @seltzdesign

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    About 1, I have filed internal ticket FE-7220 to see if there is a way on selecting a folder inside FileBrowser or creating a FolderBrowser preset is needed

    On 2, I have filed FE-7221 to filebrowser dialog to remember the last folder.
