TC like Branch View feature

Post by rail4you » Tue Dec 26, 2017 1:24 am

TC has a nice feature named "Branch View", you click "ctrl+b"(b for branch), TC will show a flat files list, the files are from subfolders of current folder.
It is a modern "tree" command and it's very useful to find files , I use it every day.

I am glad I can clone this feature in NC, NC search starts from current folder and can redirect search result to a panel, I just type "ctrl+f", clear the mask, choose search only files, and click "panel" button finally. I use 4 steps to make a tc like branch view.

Why not make a branch view feature directly? Ctrl+b is a unused hotkey, it is perfect for branch view.

It's would be really useful with NC quick filtering.

Yes, I think branch view is only a special form of Temporary panels, you can filter files or do file operations, recent beta version improve Temporary panels's power. I hope next version will bring more features about Temporary panels , a short hand of search result Temporary panels will help.

Just files, or dir's too?
Maybe two commands for files only, and for files with dir's?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZzNENOPMvc, this video introduced branch view in TC.

When you click "ctrl+b" in select folders, it will show all the files in such folders(include subfolders). This feature is like "tree" command, it is a quick way to show files in a deep nested folder.

With Temporary panels feature, it can be instead of simple search most of time (you can filter the files directly with calling search panel).
