On Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit laptop, on build 16c6c5c543e0 dated 2015/09/10:
When creating a new individual measurements file with 'Measurements, CreateNew' and selecting 'SaveAs' the dialog box prompts with a directory that is not from the Valentina Preferences Path for Individual Measurements.
My 'File, Preferences, Paths, Individual Measurements' directory is '/home/susan/valentina/measurements/' but 'SaveAs' dialog box opens '/home/susan/'
If this data were written to a text file which is readable by tape.exe, then the 'SaveAs' box could open to my preferred directory.
It is important for users to have a consistent experience between valentina.exe and tape.exe, and giving tape.exe access to valentina preferences data will provide consistency in directory and dialog defaults.
