#247 closed defect (feedback)

Current working directory is shared across running instances

Reported by: Lewis Rosenthal Owned by:
Priority: Feedback Pending Milestone: 1.4.0
Component: Lucide Core Version: 1.3
Keywords: foc file open directory working current multiple instance Cc:


There is no way to keep different copies of Lucide pointing at different directories of files. This makes browsing multiple sources more awkward than it should be.


  1. Start Lucide.
  2. File | Open
  3. Browse to C:\docs\current\pdf
  4. Open a file.
  5. Shift-PgDn? moves to next file, etc. in that directory.
  6. Start second instance of Lucide.
  7. File | Open in second instance.

FOC starts at last directory from the first instance, e.g., C:\docs\current\pdf.

  1. Browse to J:\pdf\docs\current
  2. Open a file.
  3. Switch to first instance.
  4. File | Open in first instance.

FOC starts at last directory from the second instance, e.g., J:\pdf\docs\current.

Instances should be independent (or not, based on user preference).

Marking defect as I consider current behavior to be non-standard.
