Please allow file to be opened from address bar

+1 and bump to please implement this soon.

Very often I want to edit file, such as /etc/mysql/my.cnf

I type the file into the address bar, and I get:
No such file or directory.
Error code: 2
Error message from server: No such file
Request code: 11

Please allow filenames to be typed and opened (do the same thing as a double-click action would do) from the address bar. Thanks.

Re: Feature request: if path in address bar is file then open it

Thanks for your suggestion. I'll try to find a nice way to integrate this.

Feature request: if path in address bar is file then open it

Often I need to open a file from a server and what I have is its full path (path+filename).
But if I paste the full path into the address bar of Winscp it gives me an error: no such file or directory.
So I have to remove the filename from the full path and then manually find the file in the directory listing.

If possible, if an user pastes path and presses enter:
- is path an existing directory? list its content in Winscp (actual behavior).
- is path an existing file? open the file into the editor and list the content of the directory of the file in Winscp.
- not existing file or directory? error.
