RE: Re: Patch file creation: Anchoring inconsistent

Is there a specific reason for this?

I can't think of any use case, from that perspective that former user request seems unreasonable: the fact that the CfM dialog can be spawned from any folder should make it aware of the path and not flatten all paths.
And it makes the behavior of the two described ways to create a patch file inconsistent.

Think of the scenario where you have a files that have the same name (which is actually the case when you use makefiles), they cannot not be distinguished in the patch file.
I didn't try, but such a patch file would probably create an error in the attempt to apply it to a sandbox.
The Crucible use case is definitly broken by that.

Maybe an advanced settings switch could solve this for everybody?
