Unfocused selected file color
« on: March 23, 2021, 08:33:08 »
Hello!

My pane color is dark blue. If I have a selected file in one pane and switch to another, color of it turns to very dark and becomes unreadable, and I cannot change this behavior anywhere.

You change that in the same places you customized the colors

Menu > Configuration > Explorer Panel Settings
Then look in the "Colors" tab

Then you customize the colors or Select/Selected and in Focus colors
If you want to be able to have custom background color for the file/folder items make sure to check "Use file specified background colors" higher up on the page under "Background"

Sadly, it doesn't work.
On screenshot "selected" color is white, but "Config" folder is dark gray.

Hard to say what you configured wrong with that screenshot.
Colors can be changed by colors rules (colorh weel on toolbar) or if the settings for auto change color for system/hidden files are set. (settings below the color boxen)
Also check the auto fade settings at the bottom. but that is only valid if running in WinExplorer styled mode.

It happens only then a panel looses focus.
On focused panel it's ok.

Ok. I've found the reason: each upgrade (portable) I didn't replace "config" folder, and some new settings were left.
But, after replacing it, I loosing some of my settings, even exporting-importing it. And each restart it asks about look & feel configuration.

Which files should I keep to upgrade w/o this?

Depends on what config.

Menu > Help > Backup

Should backup all config files
