Mouse click -> Selection for rename

#1 Post by fjelsten » 14.09.2021, 08:45

Hello

Every time I select a file for dragging with the mouse, the name becomes selectable for renaming. I don't want this - although I do want NC-mode. Which setting do I need to change?

I think it's a bug, to reproduce:
- use default settings
- use NC mode
- click the file once
- immediately drag and drop the same file - click and hold
= file state is changed to rename

Workaround - don't click the file, directly click and hold to drag&drop - or disable the option in Settings - File/folder operations - Rename/create - "Allow rename on slow double click" (it will disable this option, so you'll have to use F2 or toolbar button for renaming).

EDIT: OK, I'm not sure if it's a real bug, but I can reproduce it also when using the file icon.

For example, file 1 is focused, you want to drag&drop file 2, so just click and hold file 2 and drag it immediately.

If you click the file 2 and then click and hold it again for drag&drop, rename is activated, because it's considered as a slow double click.

Ah, OK.

To me, the "slow double click" should be quite a bit slower

BTW, the main issue is having Freecommander window open but unfocused.

Selecting and dragging in one go in that example is almost impossible for me.

Strange, it works good here, tried in 840 and 853 version.
