Tab key stopped autocompleting the rest of the file name when saving - MP Linux

Post by loomis » Thu Mar 21, 2019 5:35 pm

Previously, in MP in Manjaro, if you were about to save a photo in a directory, and you typed a few letters of a file already in the directory, you could use the TAB key to automaticaly complete the file name for you, so that you didn't have to type out the entire file name every time.

So if I had cats_eat_hamburgers1.jpg, and I went to save a new file in the same directory, and typed "cat" and hit TAB, it would autocomplete "cats_eat_hamburgers" for me. Very useful when having "cats_eat_hamburgers2.jpg" and "cats_eat_hamburgers3.jpg" and so on.

I feel like this did work correctly before the newest update. I am on XnView MP Linux Version 0.93.1 64bits (Mar 7 2019) Libformat version 7.25.

Please help. This costs me a lot of valuable time having to type out each entire file name. Thanks.

It's not easy for me to downgrade back to 93. I'm on Manjaro. Thank you.

Anyone make any progress on this? It's only not working on XnView MP. My other programs complete their names with the Tab key just fine. Thanks
