Or just make the current system work better. In my installation you can type in a filename, one just need to add tab-completion to it and make it support full paths. For example, I want to just be able to type /tmp and press enter and then the dialog changes to that dir. I can't do that today. As I said, I don't know what happend in later versions of gtk then what is in FC3, it might already be improved (you can always hope :-). > The ctrl-L popup has lots of problems; not only is it not apparent how > to get to it (there's nothing that points at ctrl-L), but it's very > clumsy to use (you have to type ctrl-L, type in the filename -- while > having to deal with its quirks -- and then click OK twice). No one say that the CTRL-L is any good. It's just a workaround for those of us that are used to tab completion, until we have something better. I hope it can work as explained above in the future. > and find the one I want).

Right, and I make bookmarks of the places I use the most. Anyway, what I said was just that going back to the old dialog removes the bookmark feature that I use a lot. So no matter if you use the new or old dialog one of us will be unhappy. Not that going back seems to be an option, but if it was I would be against it. -- /Dennis _______________________________________________ Gimp-developer mailing list Gimpfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.xcf.berkeley.edu/mailman/listinfo/gimp-developer
