Hello *,

when trying to edit a file on a server (Explorer-Interface: right-click on file, select Edit), it fails with the following message:
Code:
Cannot create temporary directory 'C:\DOKUME~1\xxx\LOKALE~1\Temp\scp59343\...\xxx\'. You may change root directory to store temporary files in Preferences.

The file to edit is located on the server at
Code:
/.../xxx/file.txt

(Replaced some strings with xxx for shortening and privacy)

The problem here is, that no a directory with the name ... (only dots, no letters or numbers) is not allowed in the windows filesystem and so the creation of the directory fails.

There should be a substitution of those illegal characters when temporary saving those files.

Thanks for this great program!

Regards
