file:// protocol handling

Post by wqweto » 28 Oct 2015, 20:47

In Windows Explorer one can open file:// URLs from address bar, something like file://server/c$/path/to is automagically "transcoded" to \\server\c$\path\to which is very convenient.

I'm using Ctrl+V constantly in AS to navigate to files and folders and it would be great if I could just copy/paste file:// URLs from a status page right into AS.

cheers,

Where does this path syntax come from?

A plugin could solve this.

Conversion from URL (prefix file://) to windows path is implemented in prepared version 3.08.
