3.51.0 bug: highlighting of folder names

#1 Post by flow » 2020-10-28 15:43

When you move out of a folder, it is not highlighted anymore (as it is in Windows and how it was in previous FileZilla versions).

How to reproduce:
- in a list of folders, use Cursor Down to select one
- hit Enter to open folder X
- use Alt+Cursor Up or highlight ".."* and hit Enter to move to the previous view

You'll see that the folder you just left is not highlighted now, you can't just rename it or open it again. To rename it you have to use Cursor Down and then Cursor Up to highlight it.

*I'm also pretty sure ".." used to be auto-highlighted when you opened a folder.

This functionality has not been touched in the latest update. Which version have you used before?

I update pretty much regularly but don't keep track of the versions. Maybe the last one was a RC version? This issue might have shown up in an earlier version, but it's been a while since I've moved around between folders/ renamed folders as much as today, so I might have missed it and didn't report it earlier.

Can you confirm this issue?

Yes. To my knowledge, it has been like that for a very long time. In old versions, FileZilla would always navigate to the top of the directory (← correct name), it was changed on request.

It's good that that was changed, now FIleZilla only needs to (again?) highlight the directory it just left. :)
