Use native "save file" dialogs by default

I have found very uncomfortable MuseScore's "save file" dialog, because I don't have the usual Plasma5 shortcuts to my favourite folders nor to my partitions and devices.
Somebody told me to change "nativeDialogs" in MuseScore.ini to "true" and now the problem is gone, but I find the default behaviour very user-unfriendly and I think it should be changed.


That would be good, but I can't see any reason for giving by default a "save file" dialog with no access to devices, partitions and usual shortcuts. On a distro like Manjaro, to save a file on your usb key, you must start from your home folder, go up one folder, go up again another folder, then open /run/, media/, youruser/, find out what folder is your usb key mounted on (if it is already mounted), enter it.
I ended up saving all my files in my home and then eventually moving them with my default file browser, before finding out that i could switch to native dialogs from the .ini file (which, BTW, was opened by default with Wine's notepad...).

In fact my 2.0.3 3c7a69d factory .ini no longer includes the NativeDialogs key

@ciacnorris since I understand that you persuaded MS to run your native dialogs, could you let me know the version of your MS and the relevant line in your ini file ?
