Re: A few thoughts on performance

I'll open the NC's source code later this year and will gladly accept any specific suggestions about adding support for archives modification ;) Maybe this news is too important to be left buried in some General Discussion thread? I at least would be pretty interested in what lead to this decision ...

Re: ID3 tag

If NC supported plugins, that would certainly be a great use-case for one. But if NC remains as it is, I personally think it's a too-specific feature for a file manager. Two ideas: Do you know "A better Finder Rename" (http://www.publicspace.net/ABetterFinderRename/)? It's a great tool for renaming ...

Themes preference pane

The "Themes" preference pane looks cluttered and confusing to me. Personally, I wouldn't need the whole Themes thing if NC's UI would - at least by default - look like Finder's. After a fresh installation of NC, I always take a screenshot of Finder and use the Themes preference pane to manually pick...

Re: Background color for selected items [DONE]

Thanks, Mike! I'm sure this setting is not for everybody - that's why I would leave it off by default ("Selected item background" Opacity 0%). But for some like me it's a really nice thing to have. One suggestion: in Finder (and other apps), selected rows have thin white separator lines. selections....

It doesn...

Re: A few thoughts on performance

I concur, though I'm a bit perplexed about fman; it seems to be such a slim application, which means that it should be fast as well. Agreed. Objectively speaking, the only slim thing about fman to me is the functionality. It's 51 MB large (Python framework, not so important nowadays...) but is miss...

A few thoughts on performance

Maybe this is of interest for some of you. Out of curiosity, I made a few simple performance experiments with NC (1.2.2) and some of its competitors, Commander One (1.7.4.2445), Crax (1.10.13), fman (0.6.9) and Marta (0.4.3) on my Mid-2014 MBP i7 with Apple SSD. For basic file operations, I didn't f...

Re: Temporary panels for storing folders/files links collections

One downside of temporary panels for me is that they are lost after you change the folder. Example: perform a file search and put the results to a temporary panel. If you then go into a folder in the panel, you can't return to the original panel. It's just gone, which is a bummer if it takes a long ...
