Hello. When I want to choose the cover file from local disk, mp3Tag formerly opened the path which files were in. Now mp3 Tag opens the last directory I took the cover from. And, as you guess, this is not the place were my current mp3's are.
It's not a bug, it's a feature.
If you do not agree, see
Album art addition - Why did you change this?
Sorry for flood. Thnx
Nonetheless, this is the best place to report the problem, so that its resolution may be tracked. IMO, it is a bug if enough people find the change in behavior to be inconvenient.
