I need ...and you... when I save a file to create a new folder.
« on: November 21, 2015, 05:02:49 pm »
As I say in the title, and since they say they are working on a new version of OS2, I would like to ask on the menu of SAVE and SAVE AS to create a new folder.
I think that would be a very simple amendment, which would bring a lot to the system.
Do not know if this is the right place to make this request, but if others believe it interesting, it may also be asked.
Saludos

Not quite sure what you are asking here.  Usually the 'save' and 'save as' in the file menu are dependant on the program that has that menu not the base operating system.

The file dialog for eComStation has "create folder". I don't know what Blue Lion will have.

Indeed, I thought it was part of the operating system,
 but I see that there are 3 types of display for the SAVE and SAVE AS

1- Using 70% of applications OS2. With SAVE and CANCEL options
2- The applications using GSview, Picture viewer, with SAVE, CANCEL, HELP
3- The applications using QupZilla like OpenOffice offering more options FOLDER CREATE, SAVE, CANCEL ...

I understand that if it is not part of the operating system,
 will be part of the compilers, because having just three types.

In my case they are widely used the Lucide (now abandoned because they can not print to the new printer),
 GSview (now is ok), and Thunderbird, to view pdf files and move.

 If you are using eCS 2.1 or later, there is a file save/open dialog replacement available, but not installed by default. From a command prompt window type 'focdlg' (without quotes). You will see instructions how to install or uninstall it. It does add create folder capability to just about everything.

Thank you,
After more than 25 years using OS2, it's the first time I hear about this trick.
