Enable browsing of external disks when editing a "page"

Hi,

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but when editing a page (about..., contact..., ) using the page editing feature of jAlbum (double click on the page icon) it would be very nice to be able to access to files on volume other than the system disk (external disks...) when clicking on: (Select) (the author image, in the About page / (Read from a photo) (the map location, in the Contact page...

Is there any way to to bypass this limitation?

Many thanks in advance for all comments

What OS are you using? I'm not seeing any problem accessing an external disk with Win10 or with macOS 10.14.4. On the Mac, it starts out in my user directory, but I can then go to Macintosh HD, then choose Volumes, and access any attached drive.

Yes!

I am running MacOS 10.14.4
I didn't notice the Volume "folder" listed at the root of the OS.

It was so easy!
Thank you a lot.

We shall look into providing the OS standard file chooser for these kinds of file lookups.

Skin developers, use jAlbum's JFileSelector API to ensure the end user gets the OS native file chooser.
