[neomutt-users] Query: Attach file

Hi all,

The following bug does not appear to have been fixed.

When composing email, in the Compose menu, just before
sending off the email, when I press 'a' to

Attach file ('?' for list):

and then press '?', I see the cwd.  I'd prefer ~/, but
that's ok.

I then scroll around and select ../, and some other subidrs
so that my path is now ~/somewhere/else.

I pick a file from ~/somewhere/else and attach it.

So far so good.

Now, when I press '?' again, I see the Directory is back
to cwd and is not pointing to ~/somewhere/else.

Could you please set it so that when attaching a file,
the Directory gets set to the last viewed directory and
not the cwd?  Or is there a ~/.muttrc setting I need
to change in neomutt?

The reason for this request is that if the ~/somewhere/else
directory is far away and I need to attach 10 files from
~/somewhere/else, I'll need to navigate through the
Attach file dir view each time.  This is annoying.

Thank you.
