Configuration -> Explorer Panel Settings - >Color (tab)

"Color file/folder base in file/folder name"

You have 4 colors to defined and you enter wildcard matches like "*.txt" or "*readme*" and
you can also have multiple matches "*.txt *.png *readme*"


If that configuration is not easy to understand then maybe I need to rethink how it can be improved.

Like you say Mathias, is the LIMIT of 4 highlights definition. Will be great expand this to more.
Example: i have AUDIO files (Mp3,ogg,s3m etc) (Orange)
                          GRAPHIC files (Jpg,gif etc)   (Purple)
                          TEXT files (txt,pdf) (Dark Green)
                          ARCHIVE files (RARs,ZIPs,7z etc) (Red)
                          ISO files (iso,nrg etc) (Cyan)
                          EXECUTABLES (exe,com,bat) (Light Green)
                          VIDEO files (avi,wmv,mkv etc) (Brown)
So i have a limit of 4. Will be great much more.
Thanks and can you tell me how to translate the program.

Increasing the number from 4 to 8 (or more) might be possible.

I will put it list of things to look at.


For creating translation.

Maybe it would be better to realise it via plugin/extension if possible? So everyone could create as many profiles as needed.

I was thing about maybe just show 8 in configuration gui, but allow the configuration to hold even more. so you can hack the configuration file and if you insert more there then all of them will work.

Actually, you may display a combo-box with a list of file-type color profiles. So there could be only one 'line' with profile combo, color combo and Add/Delete buttons.

That would be nice..

But, the settings module does not support showing a GUI like that. And that would require a lot of work to implement.
And since I only have a limited amount of time, and much to do. I think that the first version of this will probably be the same as it is now. but with more rows in the settings panel.

The possibility to have up to 8, is added on the latest beta (Build 857)
If more is needed. you need to edit the config file manually,
