           Summary: Inconsistency in Saving Attachments
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: CVS
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI
        AssignedTo: users at lists.claws-mail.org

Say your folder structure on disk is:
 \ main folder
     \ folder 1
     \ folder 2
     file 1 in main folder
     file 2 in main folder
 \ main folder 2

Select a message that has many attachments.

Right-click on any attachment and select "Save all".

The "Select destination folder" dialog pops up.

Select "folder 1" and then click "Create folder", type a new name (say "another
folder"), then ENTER to create the folder.

In the dialog box, "another folder" is created and opened. You can see no files
in that folder because it's new and there are no files in it.

Click "Save" to save all attachments.

They save.

We went through these steps to highlight that "another folder" is selected in
the "Select destination folder" dialog box (in the folder bar at top) and no
files/folders are selected in the file list view below.

Now, right-click on any attachment and select "Save all" again.

The "Select destination folder" dialog pops up.

Click on "folder 1". Click "Save".

Claws mail asks if you want to overwrite files.

Now while "folder 1" is selected and the files actually exist in "another
folder", why is Claws asking for confirmation to overwrite files? Because in
the file list area below the folder path bar, "another folder" is selected.

To actually save in "folder 1", you will have to click on "main folder" and
make sure "folder 1" is selected in the file list.

Correct behaviour is to remove selection of a folder in the file list by
default and to toggle it on click so that a user can click a folder to select
it and double-click on it. If a folder is selected in the file list and a user
hits "Save" then the dialog box should navigate to the selected folder and
ignore the "Save" command for then and have user click "Save" again.
