Hi Mathias,
first of all, thanks for great application - I use it at home and also recommend to colleagues who I know are using dual panel managers.

I have a small feature request - currently there is only 1 history button for whole program. It can be invoked via alt+down, but it mixes up the folders from both panels. At work I use FC, as it is approved for internal use (I work in multinational so I cannot just install what I want - lots of rules to follow....). Anyway - in FC there are separate history buttons for each panel, which for me at least is more user friendly.

It could be left from the "show/hide folder tree" button or in the same area, and clicking the button or hitting alt+down would show the history list from that specific panel. Currently when I'm in the right panel, clicking alt+down opens the menu on the upper left side, which takes away focus from the panel...

I know there is per-panel history available when you hold down the "back" button - still there is only 1 button in upper left corner and is not easily accessible by keyboard (must grab mouse and to allthe way to upper left....)

Probably the same could be done with bookmarks/favorites button.

Thank you for consideration :)

Well it already exists as you mention. You got the per-panel history on the back button.
But you do not need to access it by mouse. You can assign a hotkey for it

In Menu > Configuration > Keyboard customization, then select the "Show back history popup" command, then assign the hotkey you need

thanks for the tip!
I assigned it to alt+down instead of the history feature. The only "issue" it still appears at one place in upper left corner for both panels.

Nice, but this history will be deleted after reboot.
