Difficulty to use the open dialog in voxel editor

Hello,

i was unable to go on the root of the C:\\

is there a way to select the ".." directory ?.

when i use the C:\\ i cant go upper than c:\Users.

but when i select the other drives, im on the root on the drive.

but when i enter in a directory i have no way to go back on the root of the drive.

maybe add a button for the root of the drive in the path composer

its embarrassing, because my files (by ex for import a vox file) are outside c:\Users.

maybe you can add a inputText for enter a path.

Thanks

We'll add that improvement in the next release. For now copy your file into a C:\Users* directory.

I've considered switching to your ImGuiFileDialog and might do at some point, but we'd need a fair few modifications so for the next release I'll just fix this issue.

There's another workaround I forgot about, which is to use File->Open then drag your file onto the file dialogue.
