File selection box: Create Folder during Save As loses original filename
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
When doing Save As on an existing file in a GTK+ app, e.g. Firefox or Gimp, if I
Create Folder, the original filename is lost from the file selection box after
entering the name of the new folder. I have to re-enter the filename manually,
or cancel the save and start a new one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gimp, open an existing image.
2. From File menu, select Save as...
3. In file selection box, click Create Folder.
4. Enter name of new folder.
New folder is created and file selection box navigates into it, but deletes the
existing filename from the Name field.
New folder is created and file selection box navigates into it, leaving the
existing filename in the Name field.
This problem is being tracked upstream. I don't have the bug number at hand.
I searched bugzilla.gnome.org before filing this bug and have searched again now
and cannot find anything that corresponds to this problem. I've searched for all
open GtkFileChooser bugs, as well as text searches on e.g. create folder. Am I
looking in the wrong place? It would be useful to record a reference here to the
upstream bug to help other users.
