#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:

Description

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.

Example:

  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.
