Hi. I find it rather annoying that Eclipse will just use the last path/filename when I export a jar file. I closed one project, opened another and worked on it for a bit then it's like muscle memory, I do the keyboard actions to export a jar too fast sometimes and do not notice the wrong jar is set so I end up overwriting something. Then I have to open the other project, re-export it then close and go back to what I was working on and export it properly.

Yes, I'm the problem because I'm moving too fast but I was really, really hoping maybe there was a setting or something in Eclipse to have it remember the path/filename when I export and recall it, specific to the project, the next time I export...?

Sorry , I don't think there's any setting for this to remember project-specific export settings, just the most recent settings. If this is a common operation, perhaps you'd be better to create an Ant task that does it automatically each time you build or an Ant task that creates them all that you can invoke manually.

If I'm not mistaken, there are no settings for this, you just need to work from the right project for a specific subtask.
