First the BUG:
Set as Default from File... Import window, indeed does NOT except spaces in
pathnames. It truncates the pathname at the first space it 'sees'.
that is a bug

You can use the Set as default, if the path shown after Selection: is the
one you want,
if the combination of Selection: and the content of the field under
Selection: is the one you want.

You will get 'Directory unreadable: no such file or directory' if the
combination Selection: + content of field is unexistant.
(although the Set as default might well do its job!)

So, at this moment, the best you can do:
Import the file you want (e.g. .MAT)
Settings... Advanced options...
click Set Path
'tab' to the target tab-sheet (this case: Jellyfish MAT)

You will see:
Current path (with spaces, it there are any, yep) the one your imported file
click Set as default
(and afterwards: Save settings)
