Opening Unix style file paths
I upgraded npp from v7.5.4 to v7.5.6 on a 32-bit system.
When reviewing the change.log I saw under “Notepad++ 7.5.5 enhancements & bug-fixes:”
6. Make Unix style path (slashes) work in open file dialog (optional).
Very nice but:
- I can’t get it to work.
- I don’t understand what’s meant by “(optional).” I went through the settings pages looking for an enable/disable for “Unix style path (slashes)” but did not find it.
Windows style paths work: Ctrl-O c:\tmp\change.log
Unix style paths fail: Ctrl-O c:/tmp/change.log
This also fails: Ctrl-O /tmp/change.log
The failure is a pop-up error with:
[Window title] Open [Content] /tmp/change.log The file name is not valid. [OK]
Not sure about all of the info you provided but…
What is your setting for this redboxed option…there may be a clue in the blue underlining…? :
