Hi,
I made an honest attempt to find and answer for this problem on the forum, but couldn't. I open two files in a row by an external editor (Matlab). Files are on the remote directory. The first file is fine, it allows me to save changes. The second file cannot save changes, because - I checked - the temp directory it refers to is not created! Why this may happen?

thank you

Sergei

How do you open the files? Do you use Open or Edit command? If Open, configure the matlab as an external editor for WinSCP, make sure you check External editor opens multiple files in one window and use Edit command.

I set Matlab as external editor, and now I have no problems editing multiple files and saving them. However, the problem appeared when I used Open. I prefer to use internal editor for general purposes and edit Matlab files using Open command. What could be the problem? As I said, it fails to create a directory. I went to preferences, all reasonable boxes are checked.

Please read documentation for explanation of your problem. You can associate Matlab for with specific extension only and use internal editor for all other file types.

When you open the files do not hit Enter, edit them by pressing F4 !!!
That is it Smile.
