Color filter misidentifies Python files as compressed
« on: November 06, 2020, 02:57:54 »
Hi

I have started using MC recently. I  am slowly getting used to it. 

It looks like when I enable the color filters, it identifies *.py (text files) as compressed files (based on the color filters scheme).  Any way to fix it?

I think that the issue might be that the drive itself is NTFS compressed.

thanks

No. compressed is controlled by file attribute that NTFS shows the file has.  and if file is compressed on a NTFS level the file attribute for compressed is set on that file.
Normally you only compress some files or folders. That why you might want to know. If you run with everything compress you can remove that rule. then it tells you nothing you not already know.

File colors are colored in priority order from top to bottom.. so you can move down one rule if you want another rule to have higher prio or you can just remove it if you do not want it.

Hi

Thanks for the reply. It makes sense. I will see if I can create separate filters for those.
