Remember recent GIS Data Directory

Description

I have a GIS Data Directory on my local machine as well as on a network drive. When I switch between these directories, I have to browse for it. It would be great if the startup screen can remember the last N directories by using a drop down list.

Change History (14)

Hi,

maybe it would be possible to use settings widget ("Load settings:" in gui of r.in.gdal or dialog for adding web service layers) to allow user storing frequently used GIS Data Directories. This widget could be by default hidden (on click on arrow it could be expanded), because most of user probably works in single GIS Data Directory.

What do you think? Do you have any other suggestions?

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I believe the original use case is addressed now by adding multiple databases to the data catalog (PR:761) and storing this list in the settings (PR:858), so closing this as fixed. The "remember recent" concept is still of interest, so if anybody has an idea how that would work within the New Startup, please create a new issue on GitHub.
