I would like to ask if it is possible to enhance the file management sub-system to allow the workspace directory to support SoftLinks [and, with that, network file systems.
My home workstation has a small internal [M.2] drive, but I always keep all my data files on a QNAP NAS drive, because I have that set up to automatically back up overnight and with a multi-generation backup solution.
Using Mint Linux, when I try to create a new workspace, the file dialog automatically “greys out” [marks as unavailable] any softlinks in my home folder, even if those links connect to a folder on my local machine.
The change I am suggesting would be to enhance the functionality of LibrePCB to enable the storage and retrieval of project and data files from both softlink and network-connected locations. I primarily use NFSv4 when running Mint Linux and CIFS/SMB when running Windows 10.
This is tested and not currently working with the Linux Flatpak installation (Version 0.1.5, according to the Mint installer).
Many thanks for your consideration.
