Alternative ways for file list background color

#1 Post by Dreamer » 22.12.2017, 21:28

Different file list background color if quick filter/plain view/selected only option is active is useful, but it would be nice to have an alternative option, for these options and for some others.
It would be useful also if 2 or more options are activated in the same time, currently just one background color can be used.

1) Status bar state indicator: [state] (with different font color by default)
Show the indicator in the status bar, if some of these options are enabled:
- quick filter
- plain view
- selected only
- show hidden items
- file container
- archive (content of the archive file)

Show the indicator only if one or more of these items are activated.

2) Status bar state indicator - one letter: [state] (with different font color by default)
Show the indicator in the status bar, if some of these options are enabled:
- quick filter (F)
- plain view (P)
- selected only (S)
- show hidden items (H)
- file container (C)
- archive (content of the archive file) (A)

Show the indicator only if one or more of these items are activated.

3) Title bar state indicator - one letter: [state] (similar as #2)
Show the indicator in the status bar, if some of these options are enabled:
- quick filter (F)
- plain view (P)
- selected only (S)
- show hidden items (H)
- file container (C)
- archive (content of the archive file) (A)

Show the indicator only if one or more of these items are activated.

I'm just not sure if the indicator should be shown if hidden items are enabled, or if disabled, for some users it's normal that hidden items are disabled, for some other users it's normal that hidden items are enabled.

4) Address bar / toolbar button(s) / letter(s) of the state.
Show the indicator icon/letter in the address bar, if some of these options are enabled:
- quick filter (F)
- plain view (P)
- selected only (S)
- show hidden items (H)
- file container (C)
- archive (content of the archive file) (A)

Show the indicator only if one or more of these items are activated.
