Topic "Double click on remote panel opens properties and not file"

Author Message


When I double click on a file, it opens the file in edit mode on my local panel but when I double click on any file in remote panel, it opens the file properties instead of opening the file in edit mode. This is a problem because I need to copy all the files to my local folder if I need to edit the files.
I downloaded the latest version and it still has the same problem. I am on version 5.2.1. I also verified the preferences>Panels>Double click - Operation to perform on double click is edit. But this is on panel. When I click on remote underneath panels, I don't see this option.

I am uploading a screenshot of this issue.
Thanks in advance for your time.
