Topic "Directory History (Alt+F12) is broken"

Author Message



Far manager has a very useful directory history feature, however, it doesn't work correctly with the plugin.
Navigating around the remote directories adds entries like "username@host:/dir" to history, and when they are selected, an error message appears stating "Error changing directory to username@host:/dir".
The problem is that the plugin actually looks for "/current/working/dir/username@host:/dir" and of course fails.

Is it possible to somehow automatically strip away session name in such cases, or add correct history entries in first place, say, something like "sftp:sessionname/dir"? It would be even more great if selecting such entry just changed current directory if active panel already has same winscp session opened, and reconnected otherwise.

Anyway, thanks for great plugin!

It is not broken for WinSCP only, it does not work for any plugin. So it it rather bug of FAR itself.
