V 12.0 File Coloring Rules can't be changed from Default
« on: August 11, 2022, 21:49:08 »
Any change to default coloring rules doesn't get applied or saved.

Some changes made to color rules in previous versions are applied in 12.0.
But new rules added in previous versions are shown but not applied in 12.0

For example, I changed the color for Archives and turned off the color for executables in version 11.6. Those changes are applied in version 12.0 but cannot be changed.

However I added new color rules for folder junctions and symlinks in version 11.6. Those rules are shown in the File Coloring Rules Editor in v 12.0 but are not being applied.

You will find that changes getting applied after reboot MC...

Seems like something wrong with the color rule.

My color rules for junctions and symlinks are not applied after restarting MC.
They worked in 11.6 but don't work in 12.0
Occasionally in 11.6 they would not be applied on initial display of a folder, but a refresh would fix it.

Problem reproduced on 2 systems upgraded form 11.6 to 12.0
Also tried on new install of 12.0 on system which had not had MC installed before. Added new rule to color symlinks and/or junctions. Exit MC and restarted. Color rule is not applied.

Only Issue I find is that it is not reloading it when saved.  so a restart of MC is needed..
I dont find any issue with coloring symlinks and junctions

Updated to 12.1
Newly created rules (except for Junctions & Symlinks) now do get applied on exit of File Coloring Rules Editor.

Rules for Junctions and Symlinks still not applied.

Strange, I have no issue.
I Create a rule for Junctions...    Only attribute for junction is checked.. "Attribute Has 4" it say..

OK - Working now!
I had all attributes set to (blank) except Junction
That adds
Attributes Has Not ARHSDLCE3
to the rules.
When I set all other attributes to OFF (black square), the second rule is gone and it works.

So something about that ARHSDLCE3 rule changed behavior from 11.6 to 12.0

Anyway, thanks!

Dont know why you need "Has Not ARHSDLCE3"
Works for be with just HAS 3 (symink) and one rule that is HAS 4 (junction), might be because of other rules. first matching rule will be used
