Windows refugee here. On Windows you can easily copy the path and paste it elsewhere to get to the directory.
Here is the situation on the Mac. I am in the Finder 20 folders down and I see the file I want. I go to my application and want to open it, so I pick Open Document from the File menu. However, it is exceedingly difficult and time-consuming to get to the place I want.
Is there a way to copy the path in the finder and paste it in the File Open dialog of my application?
