Autodesk Revit 2009 changes the equation from the start...
Accessing the "Open" dialog reflects some changes in the interface beyond the "landing page" look of the drawing window on first launch. As seen in the image below, the option toggles have been relocated from the right side to the bottom below the file type selector. Also relocated are the "workset" initial open selections from a combo box on the right to an option button immediately adjacent to the "Open" button.
A nice feature of the new open dialog is the ability to add the current folder to the list of "places". Need to restore the standard folders? That option is also available in the "tools" command button.
Of course, the default has not changed from "Last Viewed" and although this ensures consistency, it sure would be nice to store that setting and recall it per user rather than a global "he who saves last knows best" setting.
