Current directory
« on: August 05, 2016, 08:16:25 pm »
I've been having some problems with the CWD being wrong when I use FileOpen (windows open dialog).
It will open to the wrong place.
If I close it and open it again immediately, then it is correct.

I don't have a nice repro case.

I have SyncCurrentDirectory and SetCDWhenSwitchingBuffers set. (Hm, I guess I only need the 2nd option?)

Really, I don't usually care what Slick uses for the CWD, as long as when I do Open, it starts in the same place as the current buffer.

When it does the wrong thing, type "cd" on the command line to display the current directory. SlickEdit uses the current directory when opening a file.
