Martin,

Thanks for a great plugin. I did see the limitation that if you search for remote file using wildcards you can't view the file from the dialog with find results. It's not a big deal for me. However when I tried to find file that contains specific text I got multiple error messages "View from find dialog is not supported" while the search was performed.
Is it a known limitation, or a problem with my setup?

Remote system: HP-UX 11.0, OpenSSH_3.8
Client OS: Windows 2000
Plugin configs: both SCP & SFTP
Plugin version: 1.4.2 (downloaded it yesterday)
FAR version: 1.70 alpha 6

If this a limitation please add it to the wishlist. Thanks a lot.

The limitation is imposed by bug in FAR.

Martin,

Could you clarify it please? During "File search" with "containing text" I'm not trying to view the file, but I get multiple error messages as if I tried to view it. How does the bug which you reported affect the search?

Thanks

Until now, I have not realised the the bug influences also searching for text in file. That's why it is not mentioned in the bug report.
