The Altair Community is migrating to a new platform to provide a better experience for you. The RapidMiner Community will merge with the Altair Community at the same time. In preparation for the migration, both communities are on read-only mode from July 15th - July 24th, 2024. Technical support via cases will continue to work as is. For any urgent requests from Students/Faculty members, please submit the form linked here.

remember the last folder + add examples

As a new feature, it would be nice if RapidMiner remembered the last folder I was in, so I won't need to navigate from My documents to on of my project folders every time I try to open a non-repository file.

I'm not sure how others see this, but I often don't understand the documentation in 'Help', or I'm not sure about it. Even if the documentation is not extended with more detailed descriptions of options, it would be at least nice to see an example at the end of the help ("if you set it to this and that, for example, it will do this and that, but you need to be careful when using it as...". To extend this idea further, it would be nice to know that, for example, the module has some known limitations, such as Replace Missing Values doesn't seem to do anything when I try to replace those question marks for date type attributes.
The above request is a bit messy but I hope you get my point.

    Oops, just saw the option for the last folder. But can I make that the default choice? :)

    1. You can make bookmarks for your folders. Anyway, why would you want to read non-repository files. You loose a lot of RapidMiner's functionality with that.

    2. The operator documentation is now in the Wiki:
    It is loaded from there into RapidMiner. Feel free to improve the documentation. Example processes should be posted to myExperiment using the Community Extension and linked from within the Wiki.
