Favorite items tree file icon missing

#1 Post by rolla » 06.09.2015, 22:34

Hello everyone,

i have a question, that i have not found solved anywhere. Or i have not seen an similar question, too. I will explain it with this little example.
  1. I am opening the Favorite items editor
  2. i will add a new file with this settings
    • Name: 7-Zip
    • Active Panel: %FcSrcDrive%\7-Zip\7-ZipPortable.exe
Now in the view of the 'Favorite items' tree, the icon for 7-Zip is missing.
If the setting for 'Active Panel:' is set to a absolute path, everything is working and the icon is shown.

So, what am i doing wrong?

Hope you can help me.

Best regards,
roll

It works OK for me.

Could you copy/paste here exactly the 2 paths you're using?

This are the both paths:
  1. F:\7-Zip\7-ZipPortable.exe
  2. %FcSrcDrive%\7-Zip\7-ZipPortable.exe
Both paths are working, but the second one shows no icon.

Hello joby_toss,

thanks for your helps, that one works! (And i learned something new with the fav toolbar)

But... what does not work is, it will not show inside the 'Favorite items' tree i am speaking of.
You can enable/disable it through the menu: View -> Favorites tree
or press: ALT+F

Rightclick inside the 'Favorite items' window -> 'Favorites - edit...'
or press: Shift+Ctrl+F

Maybe it is possible to have a look at it, too?

It would be very nice.

greets,

Oh, I see what you mean!

Favorites tree:

Same goes for the Favorites button menu:

But, I think Favorites tree/menu function was intended to be used mainly with folders and Favorite tools function was intended to be used mainly with files. However, it would be nice to have those icons displayed.

Well, that all is a little bit mixed up.

The names for that are different.

Menuename:
View -> Favorites tool

Windowname:
Favorite items (could not be changed)

Nevertheless, this is a very powerful "tool item" for me!

I have arranged a lot of links to systemtools like the calculator, charmap or regedit..., and it would be great if this could be fixed.

It would be very nice to see all of this little icons in the tree.

Would it be better to do a bug report? Or maybe this thread could be moved?

Can't confirm the fix in build 696!
Still no icons for files in favorite tree, with placeholders in paths.

The extracted icons are visible only in the tree (Alt+F) and not in the edit dialog.

Awesome!

It works now with FreeCommander XE 2016 Build 716 32-bit public beta and also with system path variables.

Thanks!
