The documentation for favorites says:
Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V can be used to copy and paste Favorites. They can be used to copy a Favorite from one section and paste it into another.

But the keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V have no effect in the Favorites dialog, neither in the current version (v13.5) nor in older versions (tried with v11.3 from 2021).

It's just a minor problem and fortunately there is a workaround:
Copying and pasting in the Favorites dialog can be done via the context menu.

Thanks a lot.
It's very cool software by the way.

That's really odd.

I tried it on 2 PCs, one with Windows 7, the other with Windows 10.
I tried it with the installer and the portable version.
I even tried earlier versions, back to the oldest available on the download page (v11.3).
The only changes in the configuration I made was unchecking "Show link target in name column".

The results were frustratingly consistent:
Toggling the option always made targets appear or disappear for symlinks to directories. But it had no effect on symlinks to files. For them the target was always displayed.

It's not as if the universe would implode, if that mystery couldn't be solved.
But it would be very convenient, if symlinks were a bit less obtrusive.

So, though I know that this question is slightly impertinent ;): Did it really really ever work as intended with file symlinks?


For symlinks I would like the name column to contain only their name, but not the target that they point to.

The option "Show link target in name column" seems to be the right place to control this, but it affects only symlinks to directories. For them the link target disappears when the option is unchecked in the settings dialog.
For symlinks to files however, the link target is always displayed next to the name, no matter whether the option is checked or not.

Is that by design or am I doing something wrong?
I'm currently using the version 13.5.
