FC 827-64 bit-Splitter bar - Copy and Move icons

#1 Post by Foxfan20 » 18.08.2020, 12:25

It used to be that the Copy and Move icons had a horizontal blue and red arrow respectively, and would point right or left to the target pane (folder etc.) for this operation. I can no longer see these, and have been through setting up the splitter to try to get them back. I can't see them anywhere.

I'd welcome some advice on what's happening or what to do.

There are several different copy/move operations that can be selected under the Define action toolbars window:
1. FC-Copy / FC-Move. The icon for these operations do not have the horizontal arrows in either the settings window icon nor the splitter icon
2. Copy / Move. The icon for these operations do not have the horizontal arrows in the settings window icon, but they do in the splitter icon
3. Copy with dialog / Move with dialog. Same as above, no arrow in the settings icon, but there is one in the splitter icon

So if you want the horizontal arrows select either the Copy / Move or the Copy / Move with dialog.

I hope that helps.

Thanks for reply. I think I understand what you've said, but I'm still not able to sort this out correctly.

I have run through this completely, and have a series of screen shots to show exactly what I mean. However, there doesn't seem to be any method of posting them directly here.

To insert an image the image has to be on a server someplace, i.e., imgur or onedrive, etc.

Are these the icons you're looking for

If you mean the buttons on the splitter.
Right Click on your toolbar->Define Action Toolbar->Window Define action Toolbar appears
There should be on the left side different toolbars with check boxes. Put a mark into the
Splitter option and then the buttons on the splitter should be there of confirming your change with OK.

Those are the ones. The arrow on each used to switch direction depending on source and target panes (unless I imagined it for x years!). When I go to set up Splitter bar buttons (as per @Ticros's screenshot), I do not see either of those. I have looked at every possible Copy/Move "mode" (FC/Win/w/w-out Dialogue) button, but do not see them. At the moment, I have a good selection of 2-pane green Plus (copy) buttons, and "ghost"+solid pane with downpointing red Arrow (move).

I can of course get along well enough with that button set, but, having used FC for many years and got used to the arrow buttons you show, I'm at a loss to understand why they are not available in my setup.

Try the option "use big icons", if not already set.
When you do not set this, the symbols will not have the arrows.

Thanks. I've got it set to "big icons", and switching between "big" and "not big" makes no difference.

I got rid of my photo-sharing facilities when Photobucket changed, but I'll see if I can resurrect something that will enable me to post some screenshot links.

I'm running version 827 and the arrows flip depending on which pane is selected. I will update to 828 anyways so I have the latest version.
