Example: I just made a .zip file spec (for illustration) and
set it in the -middle- of the File Filters list. I do an Open
& select the .zip spec in the dialog; open a zip file; close
the zip file; quit NTP; restart NTP; do an Open -- and the
dialog comes up with the .zip spec active. Whichever spec
was active at the last successful Open carries over.
(Which some might find desirable behavior...)

at one time. It is back to the way it was before or it never
changed. You need to put what you want to use for the default
open file filter in the third position from the top. This...
...would set all file types as your open default filter.

- Hi Forrest,
I send my apologies to everyone that may have been following this
thread. Myself fooled me. ;) So, scratch from memory everything
I have said on this up to this point.
No matter what file filter is used in the Open or Save dialogs,
it will be the next one to come up as the default until changed
by using the all file types filter (*.*). The up/down arrows
that control the position in the File filters options controls
where they are displayed in the dialogs.
The two most common elements in the
universe are hydrogen and stupidity.
