Can I stop horizontal scrolling?
« on: August 07, 2023, 09:58:13 »
Hello everyone :)

I'm quite a newbie to Multi commander.

I like Multi Commander very much but there's one thing that's a bit annoying for me: The horizontal crolling in the folder tree window.

When I try to drag and drop a file to another folder the folder tree scrolls to the right. Sometimes the folder names become unreadable, especially with short folder names. They are simply scrolled away to the left.

Can I stop the horizontal scrolling and how can I do this?

Thank you for your help!

Thomas

Configuration> Explorer Panel Settings> Auto adjust horizontal scrollbar

Yes I found this and unchecked this setting.
But the horizontal scrolling continues :(

Did you save the settings and restart MC? It works perfectly for me. If the "Auto adjust horizontal scrollbar" option is unchecked and the settings are saved, then nothing will scroll horizontal automatically anymore.

Still horizontal scrolling. There's the horizontal scroll bar and it automatically moves when I drag a file onto the folder tree.
Quite mysterious ...
I would love to have the possibility to completely remove horizontal scrolling because I simply don't need it.

Well, thank you for your help.

I'm not able to recreate this. If you while dragging in folder tree have mouse cursor at the begining / end of the line it will also scroll that way..

@Tommy: Sorry, now I understand what you mean. When I drag and drop a file into the folder tree, it scrolls to the right. Yes, this should be disabled. I'm sorry for being slow on the uptake.

@Mathias (Author): Maybe you can also disable the horizontal autoscroll for the mouse cursor while drag and drop, and the same in the Explorer Panel?
