Working Directory issue
« on: August 22, 2006, 06:11:09 pm »
I use different directories for my source code and
where I actually run the program. When I select File->Open after a
debug session, the File Open dialog is set to the run directory
instead of the source code directory. After I click-click-click to get
to my source code directory and open a file, I would think the
dialog would remember its last directory. And it does -- until
I do another debug session, at which point the File Dialog
is reset to the run directory.

Very, very irritating. Is there some way to configure slickedit to fix this?

Have you tried setting def_switchbuf_cd?  That should make the File Open dlg reflect the dir of the current buffer.

Ah, the old "set def_switchbuf_cd" trick! Why didn't I think of that
one?  ;)

Thanks, Wanderer, that fixed the problem just fine.
