lack of individual selection of files and folders
« on: February 12, 2015, 13:49:09 »
As an old user of turbo navigator, I used to use the Space tab to select individual files and folders to get the size before copy them to the other panel.

This function will be a great improvement except if it already exists amongs all the already fonctionnal functions.

Select file with space or press Shift+Alt+Return (Menu > tools > Calculation.. ) and it will calculate and show the size of selected folders.

Excuse me for not have been enough detailled, but I was talking about selecting individual files for making a group.

Not sure I understand what you mean with that.

But you can select files using filter eg  *.exe *.zip
You can select all file with same file extension using ctrl + Num+
You can range select items. from item x to item y
You can select individual files with by clicking on checkbox (if that is enabled) or with key (insert key if using commander styled setup)

I was misleaded by the fact that I choosed WinModel apparence at the startup of the application and I do not have this capability in that mode.
It is so bad to not have the possibility to get back to the commander mode after that choice.

But the Uninstall/Install work whatever!

You can do all the settings manually.

Or go to

Menu > Configuration > Quick Look'n'Feel Setup

Regarding that,
Current/focused file size should always be displayed on the lower bar somewhere.
