#8257 closed Bug report (worksforme)

Double-click action view/edit not working if disconnected from server

Reported by: Christof Rimle Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: settings, interface, file lists, double-click action, view/edit, Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 7


Open MENU Edit > Settings > Interface > File lists. Define double-click action as "View/Edit". Double-click any html or php file in order to edit it.

This works fine as long as there is a connection to the server. But if FileZilla is not connected to a server the following error message is shown:

Editing failed
Cannot edit file, not connected to any server

I often want to edit a file before establishing the connection to the server. In my opinion it does not make sense that local editing of a file is only possible if a connection to the server exists.

Do you try to edit a local file or a remote file?

I tried to edit a LOCAL file (on the left hand side) by doubleclicking it. As soon as the server connection was established, the file was opened with the editor.

The issue still exists with Version 3.6.0.
