Would be convenient for me when doing lots of loading .sql scripts and saving resutls (.csv) to have the default directory that comes up in the file-open file-save dialog (the one where a file was last saved or loaded from) be two separate items rather than share the same directory.  I like to put my sql files in one area and my results in another and have to click and type too much to constantly change directories.    

Also, would be nice (on windows) to have the file-open-save dialog retain the last configuration...for example "view details, sorted by date, decending" or whatever it was I last used.

Also, the export dilog could have fewer clicks and maybe default export on "Enter".  Again, just a lot of clicks needed.  

How to repeat:

File->Open sql script
Change the dir to some direcoty (A)
Run a script that produces some results
Click: Export resutls button
Click: Paths
Note the same direcoty (A) shows up as the default.

Woudl be nice to have these directories independent of one another.
