Sorry, I didn't know that. I thought the date formats and the columns widths are fix, so the second and the third suggestion lost its point.

But there is new one :)
May be it's better to force the same date format for all files and "..". Without "Today, Yesterday" etc. Now it's little bit non-uniform.

Uniformity is an argument, but there's actually an advantage to having just the time (without the date) for files accessed/modified today, or "yesterday" + time for stuff that happened yesterday, namely when you have a long list of files and quickly need to find out, where the file is you're currently working on. You don't need to study all the file names; you can just look at the date format, and you're good to go. (Of course you could always sort by date, but that's an additional mouse click. ;) )

Furthermore, a fixed width might be a problem if you have a small screen, dual pane setup, and lots of columns, so there would be another advantage, namely truncating dates/times to only the time for stuff that happened today, to "yesterday" (without time) for stuff that happened yesterday, and only the date (without the time) for stuff further in the past.

I'm actually not inventing the wheel here, this scheme mimics Finder's behavior, they've done a good job in this aspect.

I had a similar error. For me, deleting "~/Library/Application Support/Nimble Commander" caused the app to run properly.

Crash report suggests that somehow theme definition file is missing, looks like not all files were copied from app's bundle.

deleting this folder cleans up the license.
but, app running only at dark theme still

UPD:
repeated removal solve the problem
