There is something that I like alot in QGIS, and that is actions. From automatic wikipedia search, to opening an image, this use makes QGIS feel very dynamic.

Unfortunately I have no idea how to automatically load up a default list of actions when opening a specific shapefile. So I have to create new actions every time I reload the exact same shapefile. Very annoying.

Please help.

Actions are stored in the style of the layer. So, you have to set the action and save the style. When you import a new shape you have just to load the style and you will have your action. Because I think you are using this action for different geometry types, it could be usefull for you to create different default styles for point, line and polygon.
