Thank you for that.
As that decission has been taken, may I suggest that the file extension be
shown as *.* and the filter description be something like:
"Add an .extsn (.tex)"
- or something?
In Delphi that entry would be:
" Add an .extsn (.tex) | *.* "
I'm sorry but I don't have C skills or I would offer to help.
I'm sure that everyone knows, but for the Win32 version, showing an
intended extension, and then not applying it, is non-conformist Windows
Breaks the styles rules of meeting reasonible user expectations.
