Dialog message opening non existing file

Post by SafetyCar » Sat Feb 09, 2013 10:06 pm

Hi,

I have a list where I got the files in an external hard drive that I usually don't have connected. And sometimes I find myself clicking various times the files in there without noticing they are not accessible because the drive is not connected.

My suggestion is a simple message telling you when you are trying to open a file that is not where its supposed to be.

Other option would be to be have the names of the files in the file list in grey color to know they are from a list. (But this one seems harder to implement.)

PS: I searched about this but I didn't find anything, I hope I'm not repeating it.

Thanks for the suggestion, I will consider an option to change the color of file lists results.
