Topic "allow environment variables in "directory" settings"

Author Message

In the saved settings for each connection, there are settings for the local and remote directory. I would like to be able to use environment variables in these fields. For example:

%MY_DOCUMENTS%/WWW/Some_Web_Site/somewebsite.org

Reason: I typically have a similar file structure on each workstation I use. However, on some workstations I have multiple drives, so I move my "My Documents" to D: (or to some other drive), while on my laptop (or some other smaller computers) "My Documents" is in it's default location, somewhere way under "C:/Documents and setting/....".

By setting a MY_DOCUMENTS environment variable, and using it in the "directory" settings, I would be able to easily share my WinSCP settings across all of my workstations.

Make sense for local directory. But only as an initial value, if you have Remember last used directory turned on.
I guess, it makes no sense to use local variables for remote directory.

Hey guys,

although this tracker ticket is marked "resolved" this functionality still doesn't seem to be implemented. Am I missing something here ? (Tested with version 4.26)
