Tools - Settings - View - Column profiles -
Define profile conditions


After clicking the button, the condition for automatically activating a column profile can be chosen. The following condition types are offered in a popup menu:



No condition

The topmost profile with the assigned type "No condition" is activated if no profiles with other condition types apply (profiles of the type "No condition <fixed>" are ignored here). Profiles assigned to the type "No condition" can be activated manually via the menu item "View → Column profiles" or the hotkey "Shift+F1".

No condition <fixed>

Profiles assigned to the type "No condition <fixed>" are never activated automatically. They can be activated manually via the menu item "View → Column profiles" or the hotkey "Shift+F1". They then stay active until another profile is chosen manually.

All subfolders <sub>

After clicking the condition type "All subfolders <sub>", a dialog is opened where one or more folders (or folder masks) can be entered or chosen. If e.g. "*\music*;*\pictures*" is entered, the profile assigned to that condition is activated automatically if a folder is opened whose name or anything in its path begins with "music" or "pictures". The folder mask is applied to the whole path.

Folder name <mask>

The condition type "Folder name <mask>" is different from the type "All subfolders <sub>" because it does not apply to subfolders of the folders defined in the edit field. The folder masks are applied only to the current folder's name.


Examples:

Folder

All subfolders <sub>
Input: "*\music*;*\pictures*"

Folder name <mask>
Input: "music*;pictures*"

Plain view <plain>

The topmost profile with the assigned condition type "Plain view <plain>" is activated automatically when a "plain view" is opened.

File container <cart>

The topmost profile with the assigned condition type "File container <cart>" is activated automatically when a file container is opened.
