functions in the panel when we are in the tree

Post by Manyx » 2020 Jun 21, 10:19

Hi,
When we are in the tree with a folder highlighted, F8 create a subfolder in the active folder.

I would like it to work for F7 (create a TXT file), is it possible?
And for "details/thumbnails"?

in general the folder tree only accepts commands that are "folder related". For other commands just press ESC key to activate the regular folder pane then issue your command

Thank you, I didn't know "ESC" here, it is useful.

another way: to click on the folder in the tree with the middle button of the mouse

this from tips file
You can switch among various panes using the keyboard. <Tab> on its own takes you to the inactive view, which becomes active. <Shift+Tab> takes you to the addressbar, <Ctrl+Tab> to the tree (if visible) and <Ctrl+Shift+Tab> to the quick previewer. To get back to the active folder pane, press <Escape> or <Tab>.
you can change keyboard shortcuts using CUSTOMIZE > KEYBOARD
