Import always goes to PK's Green Screen directory in PK3 Mac

Here's a minor (but pretty annoying) glitch I'm running into on the Mac (Snow Leopard) version of PhotoKey 3. Not sure if I have something configured incorrectly or if this is an actual "feature" of the program.
Each time I click to change the foreground image in the Import panel, it always shows the "Open File" dialog box in PhotoKey's own "Green Screen" directory ... instead of just being in the directory I used for the last file imported.
I tried this out on the Windows version as an experiment, and that behaved as expected ... open dialog was in the same directory I imported the last image from .. perfect! But the Mac version doesn't do this.
Is this something other Mac users have seen, or do I have something set incorrectly?

Yes it does store the last location in a preferences file.
Can you see if this file exists? It will be in this location:
If this doesn't exist perhaps the program is having trouble writing to this location because of some permissions problem on the folder. You can try and fix the permissions by opening up:
Applications > Utilities > Disk Utilities
Then running Repair Disk Permissions on the hard drive.

Thanks for the reply.
Yup. The plist file is there and appears to be getting updated .. there are 5 entries in the RecentFolders.foreground array listing the last 5 files I've imported ... but still, each time I click the Change button in the Import panel, it still starts out in the PK3 Green Screens folder.

Just thought I'd bump this to see if there are any ideas as to how I might address this. Thanks again.

I've confirmed that this is a bug in the Mac version, so hopefully they can get an update released soon that will fix it. Due to it now being the weekend, it'll be Monday before I can talk directly to the development team, though I have sent an email to them about it.

The update which went up yesterday contains a fix so that the Mac remembers its recent folders properly. I hope this fixes your issue.
