Same name file and folder bug still in Build 715

#1 Post by Ebri » 10.04.2016, 08:16

When a folder and a file has the same name, eg. I have folders for countries, named PL, CZ, SK, HU, and PPTX files having the same name, after hitting enter (or double click) on the PPTX powerpoint opens as expected. Then switching back to freecommander, and pressing enter, I am in the folder of the selected item (eg. if SK.pptx was opened, in the SK folder). Naturally pressing up and down moves the selection starting from the folder, not the file. Sort order is set to extension, with folders first.

Thank you in advance, I have not found it as a known issue.

Unfortunately from your description I do not know what is your problem.
Could you maybe describe it more exactly, step by step?

Imagine a folder with the following structure (folders in brackets as in the view of FreeCommander, files not):

[CZ]
[HU]
[PL]
[RO]
[SK]
CZ.pptx
HU.pptx
PL.pptx
RO.pptx
SK.pptx

Let's select PL.pptx, then I hit enter (or double click, its indifferent), then PowerPoint opens the file. When I go back from Powerpoint to FreeCommander the selection remains on PL.pptx. Now I would like to select HU.pptx, so I press up. And I arrive to [HU] folder.

So if I have the same name for a folder (without extension) and a file (it seems to be with any extension), and double click / hit enter on the file, after calling the software and switching back to FreeCommander the selectoin moves to the folder, with the same name. (It is not related with simple switching focus, so if I Alt-Tab to other software, then back, no change of selection happens, ie. in the above example it remains on PL.pptx, until I hit enter on it.)

I can't replicate this issue with my custom, nor the default settings on my win10x64, using Libre Office (I don't have a MS Office license).

In FreeCommander are folders NEVER in brackets.
Are you sure you mean FreeCommander?

My setup is Windows 7 Corporate x64, Office 2010 32 bit, FreeCommander is the portable version (zip). It seems to happen only with Office applications. (The same issue was with 2007.)

I used brackets to separate folders from files, I definitely use FreeCommander.

(And thanks for your time to check it.)

I have checked build 740, and found another way to reproduce the issue. The issue is the same, having folders A, B, C, D and files A.pptx, B.pptx, C.pptx, D.pptx. When I click on the menu, select Tools/Settings, and then I press OK (I don't know whether it is important, but I was in the Select items menu, enabling and disabling NC-Mode, but even with NC-Mode off, and doing nothing, just pressing OK resulted in the same.) If selection is on eg. B.pptx, after I pressed OK in settings, selection jumps to the folder B. (After opening the pptx-es with MS Office with double click, also still the same issue occurs.)

@Ebri
can confirm your issue - not for selected file but for focused file in active list

focus leaves 'a.pptx' and jumps to folder 'a'

If you had immediately written that you do not show extensions in the Name, then everything would be clear :).

Thank you! Sorry, I set it at my first install several years ago, so I simply forgot that it is a setting. Putting back into the name indeed solved the issue, so indeed, occurs only if extension is not included in the Name column.

I do show extensions in filename.
but 'a.pptx' loses focus and focus jumps to folder 'a'.

(if 'a.pptx' is selected everything is ok.)

In Build 760 (32 bit) the issue seems solved. Thank you!
