#11271 new Feature request

Add Ability to Set Default Local and Remote Directories from Current Working Paths

One biggest feature that would really make Filezilla even easier to use is the ability to set the default local directory and default remote directories of the current site without having to re-open the site's advanced settings panel every time.

As an active web developer, I find myself constantly needing to change my working directory (path) on my local machine or remote server depending on which part of the website I am focusing on for the current task.

Currently, the user needs to perform 14-20 actions (clicks, scroll, copy, paste, etc) in order to update the default directories in the active site profile each time. By having something perhaps like buttons in the file manager/browser area, this could be done with 2 actions.

@exius, I believe this is the purpose of the bookmark feature.

  1. Browse to the local and remote directories you're working on.
  2. In the "Bookmarks" menu, select "Add bookmark".
  3. Give the bookmark a name.

Please confirm that this works for you, and if so then we can close this feature request. =)

Bookmarks is a nice feature that I'll surely use, but it still doesn't seem to address the issue. How do I quickly set the default directories, without having to manually change them in the site manager?
