Directory browser changes unpredictably

Reported by: perlpilot Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Project Browser Version: 0.48
Keywords: directory tab Cc:


For me, when I have several files open in Padre and I cycle through the tabs, the contents of the directory browser changes ... sometimes. So ...

17:44 < PerlJam?> szabgab: I think it would be more intuitive if the state of the directory browser were somehow tied to

each tab. Sometimes I navigate down several levels of directory structure and when I switch tabs but the
directory browser doesn't change, than I get annoyed because I have to do the navigation again.

17:44 < PerlJam?> s/than/then/
17:46 < PerlJam?> imagine two tabs, one with /path/to/foo/bar/baz/file.pm and another to /path/to/other-file.pm switching

between them, I'd like to see the directory browser at /path/to for other-file.pm and at
/path/to/foo/bar/baz for file.pm

17:47 <@szabgab> PerlJam?, I think I agree, open a ticket please

So, the feature would be to provide an option to tie the contents of the directory browser (which directory is displayed and which subdirs are expanded) to the tabs.

You were trying to use an (empty) padre.yml file to select your project base dir, did you get any results on that?
