open/edit files without extension

  • Hi, I just discovered that when I tried to open/edit any files without extensions using this AWESOME APP, it insists on adding “.txt” to it, therefore, make it unuseful.

    Does anybody know how to get around this?

    Thanks in advance for any ideas/suggestions.

    No, because this AWESOME APP opens, edits and saves any files without extensions just fine for me. What is your debug info?

    to avoid automatic .txt extension, for files without extensions, e.g. hosts, when saving:

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

    after that you can save any extension-less file, as well as saving any file with full manual file extension control.
