File Save: missing options?

With Devuan Ascii, when doing a "File Save" there was:

- a "recently used" save location option & corresponding folders list
- folders before files sort order

How to configure these with Devuan Beowulf?

A right-mouse-click in a File Save window displays several options,
among which "sort folders before files" but selection is not permanent
between file saves.

WM: i3.

Install dconf-editor and find the setting in there. It seems to be more nearly permanent that way.

With which program are you attempting this operation?

Chromium/Firefox browser (save as, save link as, print & save as pdf), Geany editor. The "Save As" window is identical.

Searched dconf-editor for "save" and there's no corresponding setting.

May be under org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser

^ This.

Or from the command line:

gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.FileChooser sort-directories-first true

That worked, thanks.

Remains: "recently used" save location option & corresponding folders list

Check again, my command just toggles the "sort-directories-first" option in the section suggested by PedroReina.
