Advanced Bookmarks - not only to directories but to files

Hello !
First of all - thank you VERY MUCH for the excellent software !
I'm wishing you the Marry Christmas and Happy 2014 Year !

So, let me offer the idea for Advanced Bookmarks (what we now call by Ctrl-O)
Everybody knows how much files we have to edit on our servers.

What if a bookmark ending with slash / - like
/etc/conf.d/
goes to directory

but if a bookmark is NOT ending with slash - like
/etc/php.ini
it automatically opens as a file using editor ?

This case we can keep in bookmarks not only paths to directories - but paths to the files what we edit.

Also, I would offer - if we type something in Open directory line (calling by Ctrl-O) - it searches not only from beginning like
type /etc
but
typing "php.ini"
will find
/etc/php.ini

Also, I would offer to increase the memory of the history in Open Directory line (calling by Ctrl-O) - it looks now it remembers only last 5-6 visits.

Hopefully some of these ideas will be implemented in the next versions of WinCP.

Again, wishing you all the best !
Regards,
Serge

Bookmarking files would be great!

Hi,

I'd really like to second the suggestion to be able to set a bookmark on a single file instead of a directory.
Sometimes there are a lot files inside one directory and when one has to go back to that specific file every once in a while, a bookmark would be such a big timesaver.

I'd make the open with editor optional. Perhaps I'd like to look at the properties of the file etc. not edit it directly.
