Re: Non-standard - and in fact, really awful - list display

Yes, that's right, you see scrolling of just the background, however they do it technically. Depending on the software and the length of the list in question, the lists are not necessarily held within work memory / variable, but fetched again from the source, so there are lots of variants how to do ...

Re: Hyper-filters: hints, wishes (especially for shortkeys to stored ones)

"3. with all combo boxes, the way you use them requires pressing the DOWN key to select the item whose first character you just typed." Of course, but we're speaking here of selected-combo-box, and then an unequivocal entering of the ONLY fitting character/string, so that no (even-partial-)list-disp...

Re: Non-standard - and in fact, really awful - list display

Well, after reading you, that'll be simple. I also wasn't so sure about the optimal positioning; 24 % could be a little bit "short a previous list" sometimes, but 33 % is often shortening the list of "next" items unnecessarily indeed. Since we both speak of percentages, not numbers, and since we cer...

"Also it's an Accessibility feature. My monitor is placed up high so I can see it without bending my neck down at all. Working in the lower part of the screen causes physical pain, so all my files have whitespace at the bottom, and the cursor is usually in the middle of the screen vertically." Exact...

Re: Hyper-filters: hints, wishes (especially for shortkeys to stored ones)

1) Upgrade: Fantastic, thank you very much! (On bits, the question had arised here and then, and then you just answered to be contacted in private, i.e. on a case-by-case basis, so many people continue to fear to lose their previous investment; so this clarification helps a lot!) 2) Internal macro: ...

Re: Hyper-filters: hints, wishes (especially for shortkeys to stored ones)

Thank you! 1) Numeric field = 0 > regex indeed, is stated in the mouseover of that field (not of the "Named" field); also, didn't even try "-x" since its mouseover: "accepts partial filenames and wildcards", "-" being neither; also, field "Containing Text" has option "verbatim", so I would have trie...

Hyper-filters: hints, wishes (especially for shortkeys to stored ones)

1) The "hide-show folders" and the "hide-show-filter" toggles aren't that helpful for me since the "no filter" toggle resets the "show folders", too, since the latter setting (i.e. show folders or not, and then, how) is a global setting and does NOT work on a specific pane; I systematically need fol...

Re: Little bug in Filter dialog (Alt-h)

I know that the Enter key activates the "Filter" button, but since I do all this by external scripting, I try to access buttons by their Alt-character shortkey, and it remains a bug, i.e. the problem with Alt-f for "Files" (!) is the tab order, i.e. only if you press Alt-f for "Files" early enough i...

Little bug in Filter dialog (Alt-h)

The shortkeys for "Files" checkbox, and for filter" button, are identical (Alt-f), which makes this dialog unreliable. Since "Folders" checkbox is toggled by "o" (=second character), and Alt-i is not used yet anyway, it would be coherent to toggle the "Files" checkbox by its second character, too, i...

Re: Non-standard - and in fact, really awful - list display

We're well speaking of the regular display panes 1 and 2, not of the tree pane, see intro of my first post here: "In the regular panes 1 and 2: Whenever, from the currently-displayed file-folder-list..." Frankly, I can NOT imagine that anybody (!*) prefers this weird behavior of x2 (I don't know wha...

Non-standard - and in fact, really awful - list display

In the regular panes 1 and 2: Whenever, from the currently-displayed file-folder-list, you display a folder content, by pressing "Enter", within the same pane, and if you then go back to the original list, x2 unfortunately does not "remember" the previous list display, which would obviously be the v...

Re: Columns

It's correct that ADS can be quite big, in fact, as far as I know, their size is not limited, as isn't the size of the main data stream either. In spreadsheets and databases, you resolve the size problem in that way that for display reasons, you cut the string after some 12, 256 or whatever chars; i...

Re: Columns

1) I would like to use the same (i.e. standardized) way for all of my files, by way of ADS, notwithstanding the fact that some file formats offer additional ways to store metadata within the primary datastream of the file itself. 2) I see I mixed up the columns described above by me, and the "detail...

Columns

A) By View-Pane Style-Details you display columns. Then only (it's hidden when your current style is "List" for example), by "View-Select Columns", you select the columns you want to be displayed, and by arrow buttons, you determine their sort order. Available columns come with or without an [S] ind...

Re: SOLVED: How to display HIDDEN SYSTEM files

Kilmatead, thank you for your explanations; I hadn't been aware that MS thinks the combi between hidden and system gains some completely new quality; in other file managers, I hadn't had a special problem with those. BUT would it be possible to get rid of those awful confirmation dialogs that pop up...
