OS: Mac OS X Mavericks, OS Version: 10.9.4
I drag a file from the Double Commander application to SE.
File opens and allows edits as expected.
On file save, SE raises an error dialog indicating that file can not be found.
Open same file using SE's File Open, and the write works fine.
I noticed the same behavior on B4, but I assumed that it was me.
Thanks,
-ken

I installed Double Commander on Mavericks. I'm not able to do any drag/drop outside of Double Commander. How do you drag/drop a file from Double Commander to another application?

I didn't do anything special to enable DaD on DC.
Hold left (Logitech) mouse button => drag => release.
Maybe the attached screen recording will shed some light on the problem.

BTW: While resizing SE windows to make the recording, I somehow managed to restore a more "legacy" file tab look. This tab behaves much better than the tab bar that I was using before. I hope it stays this way.

I don't have acces to a Mac (or computer) this weekend and my ipad won't play the file you posted. What version of double commander are you using? Either I downloaded the wrong app or it's a different version.

I'm using Double Commander 0.5.10 beta   2014-05-12,
http://sourceforge.net/projects/doublecmd/files/DC%20for%20Mac%20OS%20X%2064%20bit/Double%20Commander%200.5.10%20beta/
BTW: Should you locate a PC to use, Media Player Classic 1.7.6.234 (941fe29) plays it fine on Windows.

Are you able to reproduce this issue on a clean configuration?

Please define "clean configuration".

Invoke SlickEdit with the -sc option ("<path>vs -sc /tmp/config1").

I'm look into a different bug we found while trying to reproduce this. It's possible these problems are related but at the moment I can't tell.

Try invoking SlickEdit with the -sul option ("vs -sul").  If this fixes your problem, then the bug I just fixed will also fix this problem.

Sorry - same SE behavior after trying both "<path>vs -sc /tmp/config1" and "vs -sul".
Also when using the newest DC beta version 0.5.11.

Please see screen shot.
Looks like the full path with space is no problem for reading, but is a problem for writing.
All files in the recent file list are located in the same directory.
Not OK: /Volumes/Macintosh HD/Users/tuchman/CrashInspect/CrashInspect.app/Contents/Resources/notes.txt
OK: /Users/tuchman/CrashInspect/CrashInspect.app/Contents/Resources/notes.txt

Do you have the same problem with files names with spaces that aren't on mounted file systems?

Sorry - don't understand the question.
How can a file be accessed on a file system that isn't mounted?
In any case, SE exhibited the same problem with the file:
/Users/tuchman/space dir/space file.txt
Any specific tests I should perform?
