Bug Description

Attaching a file (Menu: Tools-> Attach File) makes a copy of the file with the creation date set to "now".

I would prefer if the date and times of the original file were copied.

Zim 0.52. Seen on Linux and Windows.

@zsquareplusc: I guess you mean modification (not creation) date.

I have a quick fix (one-liner) that also fixes menu "Insert->Image...". The modification date ('ls -l') will be copied from the original file, whereas the creation date ('ls -lc') will be set to now. Agreed?

I tested it in Linux (Ubuntu 10.04). Please check it in Windows and give feedback.

Changed patch by actually changing this in the proper place in zim.fs instead of in zim.gui. Changed the copyto() method to use copy2() instead of copy() that should cover all meta data that can be copied.

Will commit fix in rev397
