Shift-control-Up cursor key. This is configurable in "edit shortcuts"

I agree

File manager tends to change to the last-opened directory, and then the 
project-directories. I suspect that is better than what you suggest, but 
am certainly open for discussion.

Yes, this is a very good idea, and we already have the framework (see

We already have this "pida-remote". In fact if you open a 
directory with pida-remote or with Vim using :e ~ for example, the PIDA 
file manager will browse to that directory. It's not perfect though, 
because Vim also displays the directory. Adding a remote command to 
change directory would be great, and relatively simple for any hackers 
out there.
