Either reporting a glitch, or requesting a feature. HTML Editor.

Hi all,

In HTML Editor, when I try to allocate the folder for uploads, having selected 'Customise' beside the global file upload settings, I have difficulty in getting the editor to select the folder. It seems that you need to type the folder into the path rather than than use the 'Browse for folder' button. Is this a glitch, or am I missing something? (Quite likely, given recent form).

This is in DW CS3 & DW CS4 on Vista.

What you are seeing is a bug that was introduced by Microsoft's Vista SP2 update (and Windows 7 from what I hear, but I don't know as I don't have access to 7 yet). The issue is basically that if you select a sub-folder when you're in the folder selection dialog, the dialog will report back the parent folder path, not the folder path you selected. Adobe is aware of this issue, and it's not just our extensions that are at issue, it is any time within Dreamweaver you browse to a folder. For example, if you define a new site, specifying the folder to save the site within can have this same issue.

We hope that Adobe will be able to correct this issue, but for the time being the solution is to enter in the folder name yourself, or create a sub-folder with the folder you want to select, and select that sub-folder.

Cheers for the info, Danilo,

I should have known. Everytime (and that's not hyperbole, I do mean every time) that Windows Update persists to the point that I give in and install their recommended 'security' updates, something about my machine is messed up.

At least on this occasion, it's not just me being thick.

This is also something that happens to me. I didn't realise it was a windows problem though I just thought it was DW.

What I do as a bit of a workaround is when browsing for a folder I go one level deeper (if a folder one level deeper exists) and then it works fine.

So if I want "uploads" and within the uploads folder there is a folder called "notes" then I choose "notes" and then the "uploads" folder is selected.

Hope that makes sense.
