start on left
« on: August 24, 2012, 17:53:10 »
Hi,
Multi Commander is really great. But how to make it start on the left side (the bar)? It always starts on the right?

Not sure I understand what you mean. It is started at the screen position it was last time.

the bar you can move up an down. it always starts on the right panel. I want it to be on the left, as I'm used to. If I quit when it is on the left side, and then start the program, it's on the right side again.

Eh the bar , up /down ?
You mean that the left panel is in focus when you start ?

That can not be controlled. It is so because the last created tab gets the focus..

ok, maybe I'm still vague. I enclose an image. The bar is never on the left no matter how you quit the program.

yeah. Just like in Total Commander. I got used to the active left panel. I have been using this since DOS Norton Commander.

So after MC start just press the "tab" key and the focus is changed to the other side. :)

OK, thank you. Please consider this small change if it's possible.

May I propose to add a commandline parameter option to allow that, something like /activeleft ?

My 2 cents

That would be great! I know that it is a matter of hitting "Tab" once, but after so many years it's just against my nature ;-)
