I'm hoping there's a simple solution I'm overlooking to tell Blender 2.80 to remember it's File Browser settings (ex. display size, sort by date modified, etc.) Has this situation been remedied in Blender 2.80?

I know about these ideas: How to make the file manager default to sorting by modification date?

Those potential solutions do not seem usable for me at this time due to my lack of knowing how to implement them. Also I think the addon referred to there gives an error at Blender preferences> addons> install addon, something like "addon needs upgrade to 2.80". Thanks for any ideas.

As of April 14 2019 commit Blender 2.80 builds should have builtin ability to remember last used file browser display options globally per file type, as stated in D4479.

  • $\begingroup$ Interesting, looks like they are trying to get Blender to remember File Browser settings. Here the little hourglass icon (sort by date modified) is reset every time I come back to the Blender File Browser ie when I open a Blender file, or when I save a Blender file. My hope is that Blender would simply remember to keep that hourglass enabled if I enable it, rather than me having to click on it each time I save as, or open a file. Thanks for any other ideas. $\endgroup$ – frew Apr 24 at 17:55
