Re: File Find dialog - enhancements

Hehe, yeah, I think one should be carefull to not carry too much "windowsness" into OS X ;) This could get some of the more orthodox people nervous. I think sneaking in keyboard shortcuts for fields, hinted by a tooltip, is already cool enough.

Re: Share your themes!

I've never experimented with this "soft filtering", since the name sounded like nothing important ;) But now it looks like I prefer it to be OFF as well! One more question, you said that when it's ON "you can move it between other matching filename using modifier+keys"... what does that mean? What k...

Re: Cmd-+ should use current file extension

Just FYI, here's what Total Commander does: Num+ : Expand selection (configurable: just files or files and folders) Num- : Shrink selection These work pretty much like in Files, they remember the last option used. This works very well. But there are these two which handle achekulaev's scenario: Alt+...

Re: build 1176 - overlapped terminal draft, evolution

Mike, just gave it a quick spin and it's shaping up very nicely! I've ran into one weird bug: I've been playing with running commands in the terminal, hiding and showing panes a few times, running shell commands, alt+ctrl+enter once or twice and then... I held delete key for too long... It took me t...

Re: File Find dialog - enhancements

1) Accelerators and shortcuts is the area that Windows got very right. Keyboard handling in OS X is rather weak. They often say it's good, but really it isn't. I shudder when I recall the story of Steve trying to get rid of arrow keys on the keyboard, because "mouse is good enough for cursor positio...

Re: Command line

This sounds perfectly reasonable for me. Total Commander does something like that, albeit in an even more primite way, and it worked fine for me. If you implement a full blown shell I guess there are a lot of expectations that go together with it, so you might eventually get lost trying to make it w...

Re: Command line

tc_quick_search.png See this screenshot for how Total Commander does it. If you select "(CTRL+)ALT+letters" options, then if you start typing anything it will move the focus immediately into the command line. But if you select "Letters only" it will behave more less like what Files do now, it will ...

Re: Third party tools support

the power of the manager like that, in my view, is the keyboard navigation Hear, hear! :) If it's not accessible quickly through keyboard only, it might as well not exist. Commander is all about power and speed. Keyboard for the win! Thanks God, Mike understands that. That's why he made the new bat...
