feature request - allow pasting of path in settings window

#1 Post by jgt1942 » 2016-11-25 21:06

When setting up the shared folders in order to establish the path there is a LOT of clicking to identify the path. It would be much easier if I could just paste the path from my clipboard after viewing the full path in my file manager.

It may seem like a nit but I use bookmarks for all of my libraries (I have about 20 libraries) and desire to share many of my libraries. Drilling down is old-school. It is MUCH easier to find the desired path in my file manager (e.g. explorer2), copy the path to the clipboard and just paste it into the FileZilla setup window. Examples of paths to some of my libraries

S:\Libraries\AudioBooks
S:\Libraries\Music
R:\Libraries\Educ
X:\Libraries\TTC-eBooks

Simply cancel the "Browse for folder" dialog, press F2 and paste your path in.
