I'd like to be able to use a Custom Button on a Toolbar to jump me to a deeply nested folder where I can select a file for attaching to an outgoing email.    @command([EditInsertFileAttachment]; file; compress)  would be ideal if  file could be "c:\folder1\folder2\folder3\*.xls"  (ie. if could specify a wildcard which would then cause an open file dialog to appear!!!)
@command([EditInsertFileAttachment]; "h:\Corporate\Policies\Product1\*.xls"; 0 )      or 
@command([EditInsertFileAttachmetn]; "h:\Corporate\Policies\Product1\"; 0;  "*.xls" )   where we specify a filter

There is an INI setting called "FileDlgDirectory" that contains the last used directory a file was uploaded from.

I was expecting that setting this value in the INI and then using the command @command([EditInsertFileAttachment], that it will open the dialog in that directory, but no such luck.

To me this seems quite logical and hopefully it's possible to change the Notes client to work in such a way?
