Attach Files requestor needs to accept types or pasted paths
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:21 EST
Description of problem:
The current "Attach Files" requestor is egregiously inefficient to the textmode
user. It needs a text entry area added to allow the path to be provided as
typed or pasted text.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
File requestor with no place for types or pasted paths
File requestor with a text entry area for paths
The '/' key will get you one.
OK, obscure, but that does work for text entry.
However, it doesn't work for middle-button paste.
If I hit '/', then I lose the copy selection.
I can reselect the copy text, but now I have to remove the '/' in the requestor.
Also, after pasting in a valid path and clicking on Open, I'm returned to the
larger file requestor and my file hasn't been attached.
The file chooser dialog has meanwhile gotten a toggle button to show the entry,
so you don't loose the selection anymore...
