Description Karl schmidt 2001-07-30 18:18:18 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
this new version has taken out the code to save backups in a particular 
location. Instead backup only returns an error can not create backup.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Turn on backup files feature
2.open file
3.wait for backup to occur

Actual Results:  Error returned on each backup time

Expected Results:  backup file should be created. 

Additional info:

This feature has gone backward from earlier version. Being able to select 
a backup directory to put all backups into should not have been removed. 
The removal seems to have broken backups altogether. 

Other problems with this editor include not putting curser into find text 
box when opened.

This app is on the powertools CD so it comes straight from the community - they
may have added the feature again. We will be depricating this from the next
version. You should see if there is a new version available - if so and it is
still gone you may file a feature request with the maintainer.

How do I contact the maintainer?
