There is no "get info" dialog feature in Nimble Commander, but you can use some nice feature to get job done.

1. ^A opens "file attributes" dialog, you can even set file attributes with selected files.
2. When right click the file, you can press "alt" key to get more functions, for example, "open with" changes to "always open with". With this feature, you can change the default application without open "get info" dialog.
3. "Space" key give you a preview float window.
The only thing I miss is the "tag" and "label" feature. Nimble Commander can't handle file metadata currently.

You can also use some tricks too, for me, I use "Launchbar" to get files and press "CMD+I" to show "get info" window. Nimble Commander can redirect files to finder and use get info in finder.

Great tips!!

I was not aware of the "alt" option so thanks for sharing ;)
I always had to open Finder and then get info and do it the long way around.
This will really help!
