Auto Focus on New files ?
« on: November 29, 2023, 04:04:05 »
Is there an autofocus on new files feature in MC? When copying or drag-dropping files into any panel, New files  can be automatically focused.

Nothing like that is there at the moment..
I been thinking about adding it. But the problem is that all file copy is done in background to not lock up UI..  so if this should work there needs to be many rules when it should not do it and when to do it.
Since if you copy many files you do not want to change focus all the time a new files is added and since UI is not locked.. You can be browsing around at the same time in the folder and then you do not want to to change focus item for you..

So it is something that looks simple to have.. but is not.
