Summary0012493: Export to image doesn't remember prefix setting
DescriptionEach time "Export to image", the dialogs "prefix" input zone defaults to a long path value.

Instead, the 1st time it should propose the name of the SLA without path and without .sla, and following times it should propose the last entered value.

Moreover, the path for file destination is common to scribus and doesnt change when changing document. (i'm not sure this is exactly what happens, maybe the path is just weirdly managed)
Export path should be remembered for each document and should default to SLA folder (or Export to PDF folder if there is one)

Hey Kunda, thanks for confirming, but i think that this is not a "cosmetique" a bug (in french. I dont know how it appears in english : 'superficial' ? makeup ?)

ATM, both prefix and export path are wrong and a bad path increases risk of bad export and requires user to correct export path when he should not have to.

This issue is hit mostly when working on 2 different projects or more, having 2 different paths and prefixes or more, and switching from one to the other.

It's not about how scribus looks to the user, trendily beautifull or not (cosmetic),
its about how the feature works well or not, and how the user has to correct the prefix AND the path that is being proposed.

Yes, good points. This would really help to speedup workflow for sure. Thanks for the heads up. Huge timesaver here. Upgrading to 'high' priority

I mark #12988 Export -> Save as image directory defaults to last used export directory not current" dupe of this one. It has the following remarks :

This problem was fixed for PDF export a long time ago but not remedied for other exports. I (like many others) keep project files in a separate directory for each project and would like ALL exports to automagically go to that directory not the last project I was working on.

Export -> Save as image. Defaults to last save directory not current working directory.

Should be a simple fix since it is the same behaviour for PDF which works correctly.
