BUG - V7.5.6 - Save dialog - wrong behavior when submitting a Directory name
In previous versions, in Save dialog, when we submitted an already existing Directory (“folder”) name (by typing it in the “Name” textbox) and pressed [Enter], N++ correctly jumped to that directory and we could complete the save process giving the file a name. Now, if we provide a directory name, when pressing [Enter] N++ shows a warning dialog saying that “#### already exists. Overwrite? Yes/No” (and it doesn’t allow to exit by pressing [Esc]!). The only way to make it behavior correctly is by providing an additional backslash (
\) at the end, after the directory name, but it is very undesirable. The best would be to have the correct behavior as before, as it is a very handy way to switch to a different directory by typing it and using auto-complete to fill in the whole path.
Check Settings (menu) -> Preferences… -> Default Directory (box on left) -> Use new style dialog (blah…blah…blah). In my case, ticking this checkbox seems to result in the behavior you desire.
Excellent! It worked perfectly.
Thank you very much!
