#976 closed Bug report

Usability: Remote / Local paths + wrong slashes

Reported by: clockwerx Owned by:

It's 3am, you're tired. You use the edit control to
alter your current location on the Remote site, but
accidentally use a \ where you should have used a /.
Luckily, Filezilla knows what you mean and converts it
to the right slash.

When you begin to rely on that behaviour, it's
extremely frustrating to attempt to do the same in the
Local site control. You enter "c:/foo/bar/" and get an
annoying warning.

Minor annoyance

User relies on one behaviour which is inconsistent in
other areas, causing frustration.


  • Path box automagically swaps slashes
  • Path boxes (everywhere) are like a browser's location

bar, and facilitate something like tab-completion - not
just for past entries into the box, either.
