Queries the last path used in open/save dialogs.
This returns native path like "/Users/cs/Desktop/test.jpg".
Use Path.NativePathToFileMakerPath to convert to a FileMaker path if you plan to use "filemac:" for an insert file script step.
Does not work with FileMaker 8.5, 9 or 10. Works with FileMaker 11 and 12.
