It took a while to tumble what you mean by search path as I was thinking about the search functionality for users. I think what you are talking about is when you are working in a project and want to browse to another file or image in the project, correct? If so, no you cannot change that. It is by design and very useful when you want to repeatedly go to different files in the same folder. If RH reverted to one location every time, such work could get very tiresome. What RH stores is the last folder accessed.
Images will always be in the current project. If you browse to an image in another project, RH imports it into your current project. By default they are in the root of the project but you can move them within Project Manager.
When you create a project and want a skin from another project, you have to browse to the other project. RH then brings back all the files it wants and puts them in the skins folder. You do not use those images in your topics.

Thanks PeterG. I gave you a "helpful answer"...I need to test the logic.
I THINK that you're saying that when I insert an image, it gets copied to the Images folder of the current project, but "the last folder visited" applies EVEN when I'm inserting an image. I need to train myself that "insert image" doesn't go to the project Images folder.
