I've been trying to use the option "Save edit session in current
directory." It's confusing enough that I'm not sure there is a
bug. However, let me describe what is happening. Maybe I'm just
not understanding how it is supposed to work.
Background: I have "UserCfgDir=c:\vedit" in Vedit.ini
I have "Save edit session in current directory" checked. I close
I then doubleclick a .txt file in Windows Explorer, in the
c:\testit subdir. This causes Vedit to open, editing this file.
I open a few more files in that directory. I then check the
File->Enable edit restore option and exit.
The files veditsav.env and veditsav.dat file both show up in the
c:\testit subdir. So far, so good.
However, after that, I see no way to open Vedit and get it to
use these files. I tried Start->Run and then the command:
c:\vedit\vpw.exe -c chdir("c:\testit")
I thought for sure this would do it, but no. It opens Vedit, but
ignores the 2 environment files in that directory and comes up
with no files opened. If I go to command mode and try chdir, it
shows that c:\testit is the current directory. If I then close
Vedit, the 2 environment files remain in the subdir.
So, exactly how can you open Vedit and get it to use the restore
files in a particular subdir? Doubleclicking a file in the
testit subdir will not work because opening a specific file is
documented as not doing a restore.
Is this a bug??
