WinAlign: Default location of source and target files

I have Trados 7 (, running on XP.

Although I am extremely happy with the improvements to WinAlign in the last two versions, there is one aspect which I find annoying: when I want to align two files, I first have to click my way to the directory where I keep the target language file in question. However, when I call up the source files, I have to go through the same clicking procedure to get to the same place.

Is there any way to change the settings so that the default location for the target language files is the same as the source language files? In other words, that I will call up the directory chosen for the source language files when I call up the target language files

Obviously, not an important problem, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them.

All the best

Drag and drop Oct 13, 2005

I agree that browsing for files is annoying. I use drag and drop from TotalCommander whenever it's possible (analyse, cleanup, opening several files in TagEditor, etc.), it's much faster.
