> 1. Remember the last export settings as filetype, file location, parameters;

The last file location is remembered in File > Save, so it would be useful that
it was remembered here as well. Filetype and parameters arent saved in other
dialogs, so if it was saved in all the dialogs, it would be good.

In writer, there are only 6 export file formats and some will be more
frequently used by one user than the others, so there isnt much of a need to
sort this according to user behaviour, as it just adds complexity to keep track
of such things rather than having a static list.

I've seen this feature in GIMP and liked it primarily because File > Save
doesnt allow me to save to formats i'd like to save to. The File menu is
bloated and it would not be preferable to add more entries to it, but if File >
Export was turned into a submenu, then it would be a fine feature to have if it
would be possible implement it.
