I cant seem to open files/folders when i go into the
Open file screen. When i double click on a folder, the
Filter button animates, but nothing on the screen
changes. I found i can type the path of the folder i
want to get on on the top Filter line, which would take
me to the folder i needed, but when i double click on a
file, Nedit tells me "Please select a file to open",
and the same happens if i press the Open button instead
of double clicking it.

    Please send us the first 8 lines from "Help > Version" (or the
    output from "nedit -V") which will give us extra information to
    help us reproduce your problem.

    Do you see slash, asterisk (/*) as the last two characters
    in the Filter field?

    Do you use KDE? If yes, tell KDE not to apply KDE colors to
    other apps and see if that helps.

    I have a similar problem, except if can sometimes open a file, but then after
    it's open I don't have access on the toolbar and can't even edit the text.

    My version :

    NEdit 5.4
    Nov 20, 2003

    it's running on debian/knoppix linux. I had similar pbs on all the debian built
    nedit I tested (on 3 computers)
