813 - Bug and feature request summary list

#1 Post by Free4all » 01.03.2020, 12:52

Hello Marek and everyone!

When 813 donor was first released, I found a bunch of bugs and thought of a few useful feature requests.

Normally, I take the time to submit individual detailed bug reports and feature requests, but unfortunately my available time has been *very* limited.

So I apologize that I have only a summary list for you all. But I do hope it is still helpful for development purposes.

All issues from donor build 813 on Win7.

1. FCXE 813 - With Horizontal Panes, set panes same size, save settings, close FCXE, when reopen FCXE, panes not set quite the same size (set panes same size again to see issue)
2. FCXE 813 - Quick View Pane - Need a toolbar button to close quick view pane
3. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Add variable-sized separators for toolbar
4. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - In Binary view, URLs are sometimes hotlinked with one character before the HTTP/HTTPS
5. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Auto-fit Binary width does not auto-fit text into window
6. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Setting - Fonts are not displayed on background colors currently defined
7. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Most colors not working
8. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Hex colors not working, which can make every other nibble invisible
9. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Zoom and original size icons look dimmed (but not)
10. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - When zoom-in so text is tiny, text no longer fills entire internal viewer window
11. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Click plugins button, then internet button, then repeat both, and won't work
12. FCXE 813 - Configure viewer / quick viewer -> Text -> Use special OEM font gets unchecked after close dialog box
13. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - File menu very wide
14. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Title bar colors not working for font or background
15. FCXE 813 - Allow double-clicking on certain extensions to open in internal file viewer - I think this is currently possible... Is it?
16. FCXE 813 - Allow unique address bars for each pane
17. FCXE 813 - When address bar doesn't fit, and use quick view, visual artifacts around buttons and the address text is wrong color
18. FCXE 813 - Add auto-spacing for address bar buttons
19. FCXE 813 - When address bar has too many buttons, the address disappears
20. FCXE 813 - Allow "Compare 2 or more files" to compare 3 files
21. FCXE 813 - Customize Action Toolbars - Inserting a separator inserts just a couple pixels - how about allowing separators with a user-defined width?
22. FCXE 813 - When creating an empty text file, the .txt extension is not automatically added
23. FCXE 813 - Use different layout for flat mode (include column for path) - may be possible already?

Be well Marek and all!

Hello,

thanks for the reports, but I'm afraid, this way is quite useless, not just these issues are in the same topic, but some are not clear and without any information and steps to reproduce.

I added at least numbers to all points, so it will be easier to answer, I'll try to answer to some issues, but please, if you find more time, create individual topics, you can place more issues in the same topic if they are related, e.g. viewer issues.

Your topic is against forum rules, why you mixed even suggestions with bugs? Also important info is missing often. I moved the topic to "Discussion".

Please, create separate topics for issues which will not be solved here, important tips:

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=17
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=9

1. FCXE 813 - With Horizontal Panes, set panes same size, save settings, close FCXE, when reopen FCXE, panes not set quite the same size (set panes same size again to see issue)
- Can't confirm.

2. FCXE 813 - Quick View Pane - Need a toolbar button to close quick view pane
- It's already there, use option "Show title bar" in view - viewer - quick viewer options.

6. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Setting - Fonts are not displayed on background colors currently defined
7. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Most colors not working
8. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Hex colors not working, which can make every other nibble invisible
14. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Title bar colors not working for font or background
- 6, 7, 8, 14 - Not a bug, search for the ini option added in the changelog. Create a new topic for these issues, if needed.
- Implemented: Now color scheme is used in Viewer and quick viewer
- Implemented: Option to define in the freecommander.ini for deactivating of the color scheme in viewer - "ViewerUseColorScheme=0"

9. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Zoom and original size icons look dimmed (but not)
- Can't confirm, if you mean toolbar icons.

10. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - When zoom-in so text is tiny, text no longer fills entire internal viewer window
- Can't confirm / don't understand.

11. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - Click plugins button, then internet button, then repeat both, and won't work
- Partly reproduced, I'll create a new topic for this one with steps to reproduce.

12. FCXE 813 - Configure viewer / quick viewer -> Text -> Use special OEM font gets unchecked after close dialog box
- Explain it more.

13. FCXE 813 - Internal Viewer - File menu very wide
- It's a known issue, can't be fixed at the moment.

15. FCXE 813 - Allow double-clicking on certain extensions to open in internal file viewer - I think this is currently possible... Is it?
- I think you mean this one, if not, create a new topic.
- Implemented: "Tools->Settings->Programs->Default action" - %InternalViewer% can be used as program for default acion (double click; Enter key)

16. FCXE 813 - Allow unique address bars for each pane
- Create a new topic if you really need this, perhaps explain why it's needed and what you mean, just to have different buttons?

17. FCXE 813 - When address bar doesn't fit, and use quick view, visual artifacts around buttons and the address text is wrong color
- Explain, steps to reproduce, screenshot(s).

18. FCXE 813 - Add auto-spacing for address bar buttons

19. FCXE 813 - When address bar has too many buttons, the address disappears
- Not sure if it's a bug, you can add less buttons, use the other toolbars, main, splitter, left, right, try to create a new topic, if it's a problem for you.

22. FCXE 813 - When creating an empty text file, the .txt extension is not automatically added
- Don't understand, I can't create an empty text file, without a name, if I add any name, extension is added, need more info here.

23. FCXE 813 - Use different layout for flat mode (include column for path) - may be possible already?
- You mean probably plain view, it is possible, not as a different layout, but thanks to options Column profiles/Automatic views.

For other issues, explain it more, create a separate topics and add the steps to reproduce for bugs.

Tested with the version 8135 64-bit portable, test version which is not released yet, so some issues could be fixed in the next version, I didn't want to test every issue twice. OS is Windows 10 64-bit 1909.
