How should 'Auto check files and folders when multi selecting' option exactly work? And how should files/folders be coloured?

I've enabled this option and that's what happens:
1. When holding Shift, files are (un)- checked/marked
2. When holding Ctrl, files are coloured as 'selected', but don't checked/marked (see pic)
But tip for Selected colour says that this colour is never shown if 'Auto check...' option enabled.

By the way, what is the sense of 'Selected' colour?


I've 'played' with Explorer a little bit and i may state that MC's 'Explorer styled selection' works the other way than in Explorer. I'll try to explain.

1. Open Explorer an go to path with enough files
2. Set focus to some file and press Shift
3. Now set focus to another file (holding Shift), so that a group of files is selected
4. Now release Shift, press Ctrl and select a file not in the selected group
5. While holding Ctrl, press Shift and select another file, so you have the 2nd group selected

So you may select several groups and single files. Deselecting works the same way. I've made a video.
In MC it is impossible (or i don't know how)

Support and Feedback / Why different types of tooltips?
« on: October 06, 2011, 06:24:40 »
Yesterday i've found out why some tooltips are not displayed. There are 2 reasons.

1. MC uses 3 different types of tooltips:
  a) regular (e.g. as for Button panel);
  b) balloon (e.g. as in Button editor);
  c) custom (for file/folder information).

2. I've disabled balloon tooltips in Windows configuration :)

As i can see, the 3d type tooltips don't depend on Windows settings. Maybe it makes sense to use only one type (1st or 3rd) for all elements? For the sake of uniformity and independence from windows settings :)

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Inverted cursor (Focus Rectangle)
« on: October 05, 2011, 19:55:45 »
It's more convenient for me to see inverted cursor (focus rect) like in the pic.
I'd like to see it in one of the future versions if it is not hard to implement.

The colour of focus rectangle in the explorer panel differs from the one in options (see pic)

Support and Feedback / Some translation problems
« on: October 05, 2011, 08:02:10 »
I work on translting MC and there are some problems.

1. Sometimes there is not enough space for the translated word while shortened words may be not good-looking and hard to understand. However some dialogs have enough free space, like Button editor (pic1). Maybe such dialogs can be redesigned a little bit or even made resizable if possible?

2. In some cases tooltips are not shown, so i can't be 100% sure whether i'm right or not although translating is possible (pic2). Of course the translation is far from the end, so maybe i'll eventually find out where every item shoul be :)

Support and Feedback / Button editor bugs
« on: October 05, 2011, 07:36:14 »
1. Open/Save dialogs are opened in the background of Button Editor (see pic1)
2. Select "Batch Script" as command type and press [Options]. Result is on pic2

I wonder whether it is a bug or not. When you select menu "Help->Go to...->Config folder" application folder is opened, just like in case of   "Help->Go to...->Application folder".
MC v1.2.0 Portable

1. Open Settings or Language editor
2. Close MC
3. Open MC.

Result: empty panel where Settings or LE panels was before exit. The only way to turn it to explorer panel is via context menu.

Support and Feedback / [FIXED] "Hide Folders" hides all items
« on: October 03, 2011, 11:49:52 »
Pressing "Hide folders" button hides all items - folders and files (MC v1.2.0)

1. Start MC without folder trees.
2. Go to root of some drive, e.g. D:\
3. Switch on tree view.
4. In the address field enter \\[your_computer_name]\d$

Result: all items in the file panel are doubled. See pic.

P.S. My computer is in the domain, so i don't know whether it can be reproduced on the 'regular' PC.

P.P.S. Why does sorting in the tree view differs from the one in file panel?

P.P.P.S. I have enabled all Icons options, but MC doesn't display 'hand' overlay icon on the shared folders (for both hidden and visible shares)

Support and Feedback / How to search for hex bytes combination?
« on: July 18, 2011, 08:53:22 »
For example, i have a simple text file (CP-1251, Ansi) with text "test" without cuotes. So in hex it looks like "74 65 73 74".
Now i try to search "74 65 73 74" in files with checked Hex option. But it finds nothing.

Support and Feedback / Explorer Panel - List View
« on: July 15, 2011, 08:36:00 »
Is it possible to set panel view to display files/folder in several columns (with extensions aligned to the right) and status line for the current file, e.g. like in NexusFile:
