force-common-file-dialog

Make the next command use a common file dialog.

Commands in Epsilon for Windows that prompt for a file name can either use Epsilon's built-in prompt or a Windows common file dialog like other programs. The want-common-file-dialog variable controls this. By default, Epsilon uses its own dialog when you run such commands via key presses and the Windows common dialog when you run them using the mouse.

This command temporarily toggles this choice for the very next command. When bound to a key like Alt-F6, the key serves as a prefix key. So if typing Ctrl-X Ctrl-F normally has Epsilon use its own dialog, then Alt-F6 Ctrl-X Ctrl-F makes Epsilon use the Windows one, and vice versa.
