Context menu entry "open file" from directory window doesn't open a selected file. The entry "open in File Browser" stat windows explorer window in a directory containing the file, so it works fine from my point of view. File > Open works fine.

To be more precise: Padre does not open files when it is not inside an implicit project.

I can reproduce the bug with the installed padre, but not with

More information: The bug is independent of whether you use the directory tab in an installed Padre or in

Here is how you reproduce it:

  1. Start Padre with a filename as the argument, and without being in a project directory.
  2. If not active, activate the directory tab
  3. Try to open a file from the directory tab, either by double clicking or by choosing the option from the right-click menu

expected result: file opens

actual result: a new tab is created, with the file name as label, but it remains empty
