Although nothing has changed in the UI of the "File listing" tool (0.96.1), I confirm that files generated by "Create > File listing..." can now be handled correctly with the "File > Open file list" without manual editing. It seems to me that the changes are that "Open file list" is clever than before and is now able to discard the column headings from the file that is being read, even if they are not the first line of the file (that is the case when "append" option is used in "File listing" tool).

For those who are still looking for how to do, here are the settings for "Create > File listing..." tool allowing output to be read by "Open file list"

- Set file output to text
- {Directory}{Filename with ext} must be the first field. [If not it will only work if previous fields return empty content]. And it must be the last too. If not the last, the michel038' trick to add double quotes : "{Directory}{Filename With Ext}" works well.
- append option can be used.

Note 1 :

The issue is fixed but I still think that an improved interface (as suggested below) would be more user friendly. At very least a tooltip somewhere...

Note 2 : minor bug ?

If one appends a list on an already existing list file and an image is listed twice, then it will appear twice with "File > Open file list"

Thanks Pierre for the fix. Thanks Michel038 for the trick.
