File selection

#1 Post by AimHere » 22.01.2017, 15:18

Hi,

I was wondering how feasible it would be to add an option to the NC-mode "sticky" file-selection, which would allow "sticky" selection of multiple items using the LEFT mouse button instead of the right?

The way I see it working, single-clicking or click-and-dragging with the LEFT button would always toggle the selection state (note: no drag-and-drop allowed), while double-clicking would "launch" all selected files (using the normal Windows file associations). Meanwhile, RIGHT-clicking would always call up the context menu.

I realize this may seem odd, but there are other file managers out there that use this form of file-selection, and I know at least one person who refuses to use FreeCommander because it can't be made to work this way.

You can use one of these options, or both, then you will be able to select items with a single left click on icon or/and extension.

However, it looks there is a bug in the new version, only with default settings, I will report it.

Still not exactly what I had in mind, unfortunately. I just want the option to use "select with LEFT mouse button" in NC-mode, as opposed to the existing "select with right mouse button", to drag-and-select (or, really, drag-and-toggle-selection) multiple files.

But thanks for reading.
