My texworks uses a global open folder but a 'per file' save-as folder and  
I would like a 'per file' open folder.

Yes, your right.

Supose I'm working with files from two different folders,  
file1_folder1.tex and file2-folder2.tex
what I would like is that when clicking open on file1_folder1.tex's  
windows, folder1 was shown and when clicking on file2-folder2.tex's  
folder2 was shown. Now open button shows last opened folder 1 or 2 but  
without considering which is the active window.

The other way, when clicking on save-as (not just save) the folder which  
is shown is the active windows one a not the last used for 'saving-as'.

If this is not possible I would like to have a easy option of fixing (and  
changing) a working folder. This way all open and save-as actions will  
start there.
