Need for open and save dialogues to be current with operating system

Jan 31, 2013 10:02 AM

A thread exists from 2011 that is now closed with a reply from "adobe" saying they are working on providing updated dialogue boxes.
"http://forums.adobe.com/thread/848065"

 

Why has this not been resolved?

 

The reply from Adobe stated that they have to support legacy operating systems, which I'm pretty sure is handled by the installer, so it's a sad excuse.
One could simply say "if XP" load this dialogue hook, if win 7 use this hook.

 

What is the status of this lack of effort?

 

We waste more time trying to save a file with this old school dialogue than is required.

    It's not that simple. There are about 70 possible combinations to open a Windows file dialog and format it these days... File dialogs are not fixed, they are just "windows" in the most generic sense with some special stuff build around them and there's all sorts of things that need to be covered like. e.g. administrators hiding stuff in the locations bar via group policies. It's complicated and Windows 8 adding yet more options doesn't make this any easier...
