Custom folders in custom action bars

#1 Post by doman18 » 23.03.2017, 09:06

Hello everybody.
One of the most basic feature i demand from file manager is ability to create custom shortcuts to folders in action bars. In old version which i used for long time it was very easy and straightforward so i could set it up just after few minutes after first installation

A and B fields was very clear to me.

In XE version I struggle to find any way to do the same. I added my custom actionbar and added some folders like Desltp, My Computer, My Documents.

Then i tried to figure out how to add my own folders. I saw Favourites secion in actions panel so i went to Favorite Folders menu first, added some folders and then came back to actions panel to add Favourite 01, Favourite 02, because i thought those are order numbers from Favourite menu. But added Favourite 01 button is empty.


So:
1. How to add simple shortcut to folder in custom actionbar? I mean d:\myfolder as example?
2. Why it became so complicated and unobvoius? Why not just leave it as it was before?

You have to use a "Favorite tool toolbar" instead of an "Actions toolbar".

The favorite tools toolbar contains all toolbars defined in the menu item "Tools → Favorite tools".
Each favorite toolbar contains icons for program favorites and/or folder favorites.

Ok, thanks. But it really not obvious to find this feature.
