Cycle through possible folders in Open/Save dialogs
Authored by: seancorfield on Sep 28, '04 05:20:38PM

This doesn't work for me. First off, when you start typing in the path dialog (after pressing /), if you wait, the path is auto-completed automatically although the auto-completed part is highlighted so you can type over it easily. However, any combination of ESCape simply canceled the dialog box altogether.

BTW, you can type ~ to popup the dialog too.

So, pressing ~ opens the dialog with ~ alread in the dialog.

Then press /d (so you have ~/d) and wait. It auto-completes ~/Desktop but with esktop highlighted. Press o (so you have ~/Do) and wait. It auto-completes ~/Documents and now you can press return.
