Unusal behaviour in save-as-dialogue / path interpreted as filename
Sebastian Laiblin last edited by
when saving a file with “save as” I often copy a path to a folder from Windows explorerer, paste it into the filename field and press enter.
Lets say I paste:
“C:\Users\Eins\Downloads” and press enter.
The normal (all programs do so, seems to be the standard Windows behaviour) behaviour is:
the files-save-dialogue goes into C:\Users\Eins\Downloads and shows the default/current filename to edit.
Save the file as “C:\Users\Eins\Downloads.txt” , so:
- wrong dierectory, C:\Users\Eins\ instead of C:\Users\Eins\Downloads
- wrong filename Downloads.txt instead of what I want to enter
This strange behaviour exists since years in Notepad++ and makes it very hard to work with everytime this happens.
Could this be fixed in the next time???
I think I am not the only one being frustrated about this error.
