That's what got me confused! The filechooser always and immediately reverts back to path-bar.

I searched, and found this and ultimately this. The issue was closed by some bigwig who also made the incredibly arrogant comment "It is a private gtk setting, you don't really have any business tweaking it. It may disappear at any point." Once again, it makes me hate GTK3.

FWIW, Ctrl-L will activate & highlight the filename entry, but the same happens when you just start to type - and there's a difference if you start typing with / or a letter. Neat, actually.
Ctrl-V also seems to work. Copying filenames is possible, but not complete paths.


A request: please read this thread and if possible, leave a comment. I believe this concerns us all.

BL quote proposals to this thread please.

Good grief. roll

Thanks for that, anyway.
