When I try to create a Custom Filetype Association in the settings, FileZilla strips out the space when I try to specify
php "/Applications/Sublime Text.app"
. I get a pop-error window which reads:
Failed to validate settings
Associated program not found:
I've tried entering the following different specifications:
php "/Applications/Sublime Text.app" -open php /Applications/Sublime\ Text.app -open php ""/Applications/Sublime Text.app"" -open php '/Applications/Sublime Text.app' -open php "/Applications/Sublime\ Text.app" -open php "/Applications/Sublime\\ Text.app" -open php /Applications/Sublime\\ Text.app -open
(As well as other variations without the "-open") Interestingly, double quotes and double backslash got VERY close.
Since there are work-arounds (I believe), this is not a barn-burner. It may be a documentation issue, I just have not able to google an answer that works.
BTW, cut'n'Paste is very quirky /and/or not working in this settings dialog as well as the error message window.
...Wait a minit! Now the double quote double back slash does not preserve the space. I swear it did-- Is this related to the cut'n'paste issue? I must be loosing my mind!
