Remembering last opened file

I'm running latest version of Moneydance on a Mac.

When the .md file is stored on the Mac, Moneydance will "remember" it and open it on subsequent restart of the program. Good. When the .md file is stored on a file server on the network (running Samba and connected to Mac with SMB protocol), when Moneydance restarts I get the screen asking me to create a new file, open old, etc. It doesnt' remember the previously opened file.

Is there a way for Moneydance to be told where the file is and then remember it?

    Hi rmschne

    I believe this is related to OS X not automatically mounting samba shares. Rather than Moneydane not remembering the location of the last open file. Moneydane remember the path to the network share and becasue OS X has not mounted the share when Moneydance asks the operating system for the file OS X return a file not found message.

    What this means is that you have to mount the network share before running Moneydance. There are a couple of tricks to make that a bit easier. You can open safari and type in "smb://hostname" (but don't hit enter!) and then drag the URL (by the icon to the left of the URL) to the dock in order to quickly open the smb smb connection. Or here is a link that describes how to auto mount on login:
