#5595 new Bug report

Keyboard navigation on directory panel

Reported by: Jean-Louis Dessalles Owned by:
Priority: low Component: FileZilla Client

Description (last modified by Alexander Schuch)

Since a former update (maybe FileZilla 3), the possibility of jumping to a location on the directory tree by pressing a letter on the keyboard has been lost.
I suspect that is has been lost on the local directory panel first, and now on the distant directory panel as well.
Note that it is still preserved on the file list panels.

The possibility of navigating using the keyboard is important for users like me who appreciate "mouseless" fast interaction.

I just tried in an older version of FileZilla -, and there this works already. Anything in particular to have a look at? For me, it works.

I'm able to reproduce this behavior in FileZilla Client 3.52.2:

  1. Click on a directory in the "local site" directory tree.
  2. Press a letter corresponding to the first letter of any directory in the tree. For example, press "d", since that corresponds with the "Desktop" directory.

You will observe that the selection will not jump to the e.g. Desktop directory.

To contrast this behavior, select a directory in the "local site" directory tree and then select a file or directory in the list of local files and directories. When you press a letter in this pane the selection will jump immediately to a file or directory that starts with the letter you pressed.
