Even if the previously selected image is not selected upon relaunch of DPL, one could normally assume that the image that will be selected when opening a given folder in the image browser would be the first (or last) image in that folder corresponding to the currently selected sort order. No luck, the image that is automatically selected is the image that would be the first displayed if the selected sort order was “name”, whatever the position it has relative to the currently selected sort order. Period. [I don’t know what happens in the Mac version].
Yes. Storing the last copied settings and allowing to select which settings are copied and pasted is something that should be already implemented in DPL. Lightroom has it from the beginning. However, this feature deserves its own request, I agree.
