FileZilla Client feature request: Highlight subdirectory on double-click in address bar

#1 Post by jhli » 2017-01-05 19:27

It would be nice if the FileZilla Client could highlight just the subdirectory when the local/remote site address text is double-clicked. See image:

Currently double-clicking the text highlights all of the text instead of just the subdirectory:

The default behavior in Windows OS is to only highlight the words in between the slashes, and highlight the entire text if the user triple-clicks.

Current behavior:
Double-click = Highlight all

Suggested behavior:
Double-click = Highlight subdirectory
Triple-click = Highlight all

The selection handling of the remote path box in FileZilla is done by Windows itself, so it already works correctly.
The default behavior in Windows OS is to only highlight the words in between the slashes, and highlight the entire text if the user triple-clicks.
It actually more complex: Windows highlights words, which are parts of the string separated by spaces and a few other separators, e.g. backslashes. A forward slash however is not a separator Windows recognizes.
