"Open URL" and "Save to URL" dialog forgets recent servers

Post by joewiz » Sat Jan 23, 2010 3:54 am

The "Open URL" and "Save to URL" dialogs have a dropdown menu labeled "Server URL". However, this menu never shows recent servers. It should show recent servers, like the "File URL" dropdown menu in the same dialog does. Moreover, it should remember the associated username and password.

As a user who commonly switches between servers (with different URLs and accompanying login info), an even better solution would be to allow users to set up favorites/bookmarks to commonly used servers.

Thanks in advance for anything you can do to improve this aspect of oXygen. (I'm using XML Editor 11.1.)

I have also found this problem takes me a lot of time to reenter each of the servers. It would be VERY nice if all the database connections would appear in a drop-down list!

Thanks for considering the fix.

Thank you for reporting this problem.

Please note that starting with version 11 we added the possibility to store the server settings used to open the file in Open URL dialog as a data source connection that will be further available in the Data Source Explorer view.

If you like to store the settings you should press the graphical button above the OK button and choose a name for that connection.

You can activate the Data Source Explorer view using:
Perspective->Show View->Data Source Explorer
and then you can open the files by browsing the tree.

Stefan,

Thank you for pointing this out! I must say it's not the most intuitive way, but it works!

Joe
