      Description

      In the project explorer sidebar, under "Source File" file paths miss their first character as shown in the attachment (and below). Double-clicking on the file results in a "file error, path not found" message. Compiling works fine however.

      In CMakeLists.txt these are defined as, and shown in project explorer as:

      ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/src/main.cpp ---> P:\rc\main.cpp ("src" is truncated)

      Printing the CMAKE variable using MESSAGE shows no truncation.

      When a full path is supplied in CMakeLists.txt, the issue does not occur, i.e:
      C:\sourcedir\src\main.cpp ---> C:\sourcedir\src\main.cpp (CORRECT)
      Given cross-platform development I prefer the former setup.

      Best guess:
      The treelist path generator expected a double dash in the drivename (i.e. "C:\ \"
      ), got "C:\" and truncates the path string instead. Using a VM shared folder may contribute.
