Description

It would be good if the "save as" dialogue would remembered the users last choice concerning the "add saved file" option.

As discussed on http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/qgis-ux/2015-January/000265.html

Similar options in fTools, GdalTools ("Add result to canvas"), processing ("Open output file after running algorithm") and heatmap ("Add generated file to map").

I agree, it's rather annoying to have to constantly navigate to the same folders. One could also argue this is a bug.

But this isn't even about the folder - it's about the checkbox that decides to add the result to the map canvas or not. The folder is a different issue, but there's probably no one-fits-all solution for that either - whether to save this individually per tool, per plugin, per format, per type (e.g. vector/raster) or globally.

Storing it in the project instead of the settings might also be interesting.

Right, sorry. I misread the issue.
