Files with "-" in path don't get opened properly in Workspace
I have a couple of files in a workspace with a “-” in the path (not in the filename). For example, “c:\temp\my-docs\test.txt”. While Notepad++ is open the file will open and close fine. But when I exit Notepad++, then reopen it and look at the list of files in the workspace, the file in question has a red circle with dash next to it. If I edit the path for the file, an additional character, a “”, has been added into the path, just before the “-”. This means each time I open my workspace I have to re-edit all the paths.
Is there a way to fix this myself (other than moving all my files into a folder without a “-” in it), or is this a bug?
