Re: How to fix weak font on selection dialog?

That is good news. Thanks for looking into the issue.

Is there a change a user can make in their PC's runtime environment? Or will it have to be in a future release of FreeCommander?

Re: How to fix weak font on selection dialog?

I want to report that changing the font (in the registry) for MS Shell Dlg did not help the situation. For reference, here's a solution for the same problem that was reported for a different application: http://www.raize.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=515 I can't begin to know what change would be ...

Can Quick View of ZIP display an icon?

Overall, FreeCommander XE does a great job at providing an appropriate Quick View of the different types of files But in my installation, ZIP files default to a unicode representation (... because they are "unknown"?) Is there a setting or method to cause an icon or image to be displayed? The Zip fo...

Re: Any setting to detect external update to current files?

Thanks for pointing that out. I preview my posts ... but I was reading right past such an obvious (now) mistake. It is corrected.

Re: Any setting to detect external update to current files?

Thanks for your response. Per the information in your post, I did a test using Windows Explorer to delete individual files ... and watched FreeCommander's window. The window updated properly each tim e ... and it was not the window that had focus. My earlier results involved a 3rd-party program that...

Any setting to detect external update to current files?

FreeCommander is pretty good at keeping the current folder/file panel updated when moving or deleting files ... whenever FreeCommander is performing the operation. But I've noticed that the list does not update when some external program deletes a file. I've used other file managers that somehow sen...

Ideas for improving main panels

As shown in the mockup, below, it seems that two options could enhance the appearance of the tree and the details panel: 1. Allow the user to suppress the 'folder' icons in the tree, since they're all the same. It would look less cluttered. 2. Add an option to set folder names to bold in the details...

Re: How to fix weak font on selection dialog?

One additional point ... and I may be totally off base with this: The font appears to be Microsoft Sans Serif ... a fairly crude font. So, is it possible that FreeCommander is using MS Shell Dlg , while the other programs are using MS Shell Dlg 2 ? That would explain why a better looking font (Tahom...

Re: How to fix weak font on selection dialog?

Some clarification: I used the word "distraction". But to a new user, it might appear to be a "glitch" ... as in "what setting do I have wrong?" ... or "is this a bug in the software?" ... and even: "if this is a bug, what other bugs are there?". I think all these things occurred to me the first tim...

Re: How to fix weak font on selection dialog?

It is Windows dialog. How, then, can I change the font on a Windows dialog? But maybe a better question is: of the 20+ applications on my Win7 PC, why does the weak font only occur in FreeCommander dialogs . In other words, for the same kind of file selection dialog, ALL other applications display ...

How to fix weak font on selection dialog?

Would anyone happen to know what setting controls the font for file selection dialogs? I've had good success setting the fonts for all other parts of FreeCommander XE Portable. As a result, the font that's used for the popup panel looks "weak", by comparison. Thanks in advance for any help. (I'm run...

Can Address bar display quick filter?

I've be able to get the two buttons for quick filter to be placed on the right side of the Address bar. But I cannot find a way to move the current filter, itself. It is always at the bottom right. Is there a setting to have the current filter value display beside the buttons? (like it does on the S...

Bolder border for selected thumbnail

I've only used FreeCommander for a short while, but one shortcoming has jumped out to me: The border around the currently-selected thumbnail image needs to be bolder. The current 2-pixel border is hard to distinguish from the 1-pixel "frame" around all the other ones ... at least not "at a glance". ...

Re: What controls the gradient for a selected button?

Thanks for those links. Below is the image that goes with my original question. I'll explore the possibility of a Custom Style. It might be the best approach, since I would like FreeCommander under Win7 and Win10 have the same appearance. http://img249.imagevenue.com/loc129/th_723530223_ButtonGradie...

Re: What controls the gradient for a selected button?

Thanks for your response. What I was trying to preserve is the gradient behind the top button panel. But the gradient is, apparently, coming from the Window Style. Using a Custom Style seems to discard the gradient. (BTW, how do I insert an image into a post? My attempt resulted only the the word "I...
