On my system here is also a configuration option in the opening dialog of kate 
next to the field where the directory is shown. There, in a submenu, I can 
choose that directories be shown first. Also, with F12 as a hotkey, directories 
will be shown in a separate area of the open file dialog.

Hope, this helps
