File open dialogue does not include *.PDF

Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: Lucide Core Version: 1.0 Beta 2
Keywords: Open Dialogue Cc:

Description

Sine one of the primary uses of Lucide is to read PDF files, wouldn't it be better to include *.PDF in the list of files displayed when one selects document open ?

Do you have GBM plugin installed? If yes, try to remove it. It helps?

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by edurrant@…

Yes - moving GBM.DLL out of the directory fixes the issue - is it that GBM lists so many extensions that there's no room for the rest of the plugins to include their small lists ?

Yes, standard file dialog can't handle large string of extensions.

We are looking to creation of custom file dialog.

The following is the list presented in the Open Document Dialogue:

*.DJVU;*.DJV;*.BMP;*.VGA;*.BGA;*.RLE;*.DIB;*.RL4;*.RL8;*.GIF;*.PCX;*.PCC;*.TIF;*.TIFF;*.TGA;*.VST;*.AFI; *.IFF;*.LBM;*.VID;*.PBM;*.PGM;*.PPM;*.PNM;*.KPS;*.IAX;*.XBM;*.SPR;*.SPRITE;*.PSE;*.PSEG;*.PSEG38PP; *.PSEG3820;*.IMG;*.XIMG;*.CVP;*.PNG;*.JPG;*.J

Can I suggest that by a small change you can still open the same documents but only need the shorter string below ?

*.DJV*;*.BMP;*.?GA;*.RL*;*.GIF;*.PC*;*.TIF*;*.VST;*.AFI;*.IFF;*.LBM;*.VID;*.P?M;*.KPS;*.IAX;*.XBM;*.SPR*; *.PSE*;*.*IMG;*.CVP;*.PNG;*.JPG

I don't know what the *.J should have been at the end of the list as it was truncated - I also don't know if there are even more formats past the *.J

Hieko has updated his GBL plugin to limit the extensions list to the most popular formats. This allows .pdf to show up in the list. Hist site has the updated plugin.

  • Milestone 2.0 and further deleted
  • Version set to 1.0 Beta 2

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Using the most recent version (1.0) of the GBM plugin, no longer takes the whole file selection line in the open document dialogue.

Hence using the latest GBM plugin this problem no longer occurs.

Closing this ticket as fixed.

Thanks Ed.
