File dialogue can't show contents of folder alias

File dialogue can't show contents of folder alias

Hello,

If I try to open a folder that is an alias to another folder through the ST file dialogue it doesn't recognise it as a folder. It shows the folder icon but doesn't show its contents. If I click on it it opens a string of binary in the editor.

Workaround: When you create an alias to a folder, OSX names it by appending 'alias' to the original folder name. If the folder is not renamed, ST can see and open it fine. If 'alias' is removed from the end of the name it cannot. So don't remove alias from the end of the alias folder's name.

Thanks.

I'm on Mountain Lion.
