How to color panels ?
« on: October 03, 2020, 17:42:56 »
Hello  :)

I just downloaded MultiCommander.
 I will work with a file exploration panel, displaying its tree structure on its left side.
But I can’t find how to color each of the two panels-background  differently and also color the text  :-[
Could someone give me the answer ?
thank you in advance   :)

See configuration - Explorer panel settings - Colors - Active/Inactive panel.

Files:
Configuration > File Coloring Rules Editor.
Now using Win 10.
Used 'em all from DOS 2.0 onwards.

 Hello !

Thanks for answers :

@Jean     >>> See configuration - Explorer panel settings - Colors - Active/Inactive panel.

       OK. this is right ! My error was to see only the " color" icon on the  top line  of main window  :-\

@Alanrf   >>> Configuration > File Coloring Rules Editor.

       not OK  :   this is only for color files names !
