FS#182 - Openfile dialog does not respect initial directory on MacOS

This is a known bug in the Carbon Framework as best I can tell. I was supposed to be fixed 2 or 3 years ago, but seems to still be there.

I think we just need to watch for some resolution, but I don't think Carbon is being updated.

We should have something in release notes like:

In MacOS, the File Open dialog box may not always show files in your working data directory. This is a bug in the underlying framework that has been used to support creation of EpiData for Windows, MacOS and Linux, so we cannot change this behaviour. Mac users can create a shortcut to the data directory in the Finder Sidebar. The Sidebar will appear when you use File, Open or type read; at the command prompt.


Available keyboard shortcuts
