Bug during navigation of directories when saving a file

  • Hi, there.

    In the previous versions of Notepad++, I was able to navigate directories with “…”, “.”, directory name, etc when saving a file. This helps me from using the mouse. Unfortunately, latest versions of Notepad++ assume that I’m trying to replace a directory when I use paths such as “…” and “.”

    I’m assuming the problem may be with some flags passed to the file chooser dialog implemented by Windows.

  • welcome to the notepad++ community, @Samuel-Rowe

    only the new style file dialogue accepts . and .. at the path input area.

    please go to settings > preferences > default directory and enable use new style dialog as seen at the screenshot below.
