The toolbar position works properly for me.
Please try to build an example with the problem and send me all config files.

I've pmed you FreeCommander.ini, FreeCommander.fav.xml & FreeCommander.fav.ini
btw, why do you need/write 2 fav. files anyway?

Unfortunatelly it works for me properly with your files (Win7/64).

"Favorite tools" and "Favorite folders".

I've had this problem, too, for ages, and have been complaining about it here: http://forum.freecommander.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4089

I sure would like to see this one go away!

update: just in case, my screen resolution is set to 1280x1024, FC window is not maximized, use sizer.exe if needed

Yes, I can reproduce this time after time. In fact, it happens every single time without fail. I have to brace myself :lol: !

I don't have any problem, however when I close FC and reopen it - the toolbars are all okay - its just when I click the OK button after I edit the favourite toolbars.

It is not reproducable for me. Your files works properly on my PC and in VM.

yeeees please, this issue bugs me so much I even sticked to build 596 on a machine as it surprisingly works there most of the time.

a possible solution/implementation could be to "snap" toolbars to the main window or to other toolbars.

in case you still not able to repro, I am willing to help tracing this bug down in ollydgb or ms debugger, pm me a debug version and instructions.

Same here! It isn't fixed yet. The toolbar positions still get scrambled. Marek, can I send you my ini files?

at last! I figured out what causes the issue! :mrgreen:

to reproduce, create three favorite toolbars
one fav. toolbar has 8 items, the second 7 and the third 2 items

check:
Integrate favorite toolbars with action toolbars
select
define action toolbars/general Options/many toolbars
unselect: Show menu as toolbar
Image

now add an item to the second toolbar, to get 8 items in total, restart FC
-> BUG, see video:
Image

I pm you the complete FC folder (bad_ = 8 items = bug) and (ok_ = 7 items) to verify & finally fix this %§$(%§ bug!
BGM, you owe me a coffee! :D

Do you mean to say that adding more than 7 items to a toolbar is what causes the scramble?

@inglorious, I'd love to buy you a coffee, actually. Do you live close by?
