Topic: Thank you VERY MUCH for Free Commander

The one thing I do like about Vista's explorer and hope for in FC (or any other file commander product with sufficient nerve) is the functionality behind the column labels. The sorting/grouping/amd filtering options available from a right-click on a Vista Explorer column label are righteous, useful,...

I think a mini-toolbar just above or below each tree would be a good place for a button activating such a function.

Details view icon background bug

File icons in details view are not alpha'd properly. This is readily apparent when one chooses a dark color for the alternate background color of the file panel. http://img379.imageshack.us/img379/5931/clipboard1et2.png IMO the icon backgrounds should be transparent/match the color behind them.

That works great, thanks!

Perhaps I missed something in the manual? :oops:

I'd still like the button behavior, but obviously that would now have low priority with me, since the double-click does exactly what I need.

Thanks again!

Reqst: Root Button goes to root of locked tab

I really appreciate the tab context menu option "Lock - navigation to subfolders". Thank you for it! It would be great if I could quickly return to the root of a locked tab by clicking the panel's "root" button (the backslash). I am for years used to this behavior in another file manager and use it ...

Drag & Drop from Archives?

Drag & drop from an archive (displayed in an FC panel) doesn't work on my system. Is this (lack of) behavior simply a lacuna of design, an option I haven't found yet, a bug, or something weird about my installation? If it is just a missing function, please add it to the suggestions list! Thanks for ...

IMO, The major difference between the two is plug-in support. There is a very active developer community behind the compression, file system, lister (file preview, etc), and contents (custom lister columns) TC plug-in architectures. If you depend upon the TC plug-ins, you will find yourself frequent...

Back when I began my career in IT (1982), of course we were using CRTs, and a co-worker once pointed out that a CRT is really just a light bulb and had I ever considered how we spent our entire day staring at light bulbs and typing. I really took that to heart and though now there are LCD displays i...

Reqst: Quick Filter Applied Only to Current Tab

It is inconvenient to have to disable a quick filter when navigating to a new tab in FreeCommander. My suggestion is for a quick filter to apply to its parent tab only. This means that the filter would become a persistent property of the tab, and NOT the file panel (as it currently is), in much the ...

Reqst: Quick Filter as Combo

Currently the very useful quick filter input box (lower right of each file panel) is a simple text control. My suggestion is to convert it to a combo box which contains the previous n unique quick filters typed by the user. If that were implemented, the user could quickly cycle through various filte...

Nevermind...

I found it on the QuickSearch/Filter page of options.

Consequently, this is NOT a bug.

Fully customizable, named column layouts are de rigeur in file managers these days. I'm confident we'll eventually see them in FreeCommander. But in the meantime, a productive shortcut (meaning: easier to program in the short term) would be for FreeCommander to support TC's wdx (content) plugin spec...
