On Cyberduck 5.3.5, MacOS 10.12.

When you click on "Open connection" and select Amazon S3. The "more option" settings drawer in not displaying.

It is displaying properly when you add a new bookmark or edit an existing one.

I was able to reproduce the bug on MacOS 10.9.3 and CyberDuck 5.3.7. I was also able to confirm the issue doesn't exist on Windows ( CyberDuck 5.3.3 - unfortunatly can't update on that machine). I was able to confirm the bug still exists on the latest dev snapshot for mac.

Attached are some screenshots demonstrating the issue.

Toogle log drawer is empty.

  • Component changed from core to interface
  • Milestone set to 5.3.7
  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from new to closed

We deliberately removed these options from the Connection sheet. As a workaround, create a bookmark from the very start instead.

Why? Remove it somewhere and leave it somewhere elst, that's confusing and limiting.

In our case we are limiting the folders to which a user can access inside a S3 bucket. Therefor the user has to specify an initial path otherwise they will get an error. I know this may sound like a edge case but I'm sure we are not the only one who will need this option.

As mentioned in my original ticket I'm aware of the bookmark workaround, but from a user perspective, when you open cyber-duck you are kind of driven to click on "open connection". To have watched multiple users setting up their accounts this is what of them click on first (which kind of make sense). We have already received to support requests from confused users.
