[FIXED] Favorites tree opens in tabs when Settings changed

#1 Post by Scott_Y » 03.10.2012, 17:58

Changing the state of Tree Visibility Per Tab (found in Settings > View > Tree > General page) -- either enabling it or disabling it -- opens a Favorites tree in every tab. Then when cycling through the tabs, a folder Tree may be spontaneously opened as well. (FC 601, Win7-64.)

[EDIT 2013-01-25] Changed topic name from "601 Tree Per Tab opens Favorites tree in all tabs" to "Favorites tree opens in tabs when Settings are changed" because the problem occurs when any settings are changed, not just Tree settings.

[EDIT 2013-02-01] The Favorites tree is not opened when settings changes are applied with the Apply button, but only when exiting the Settings dialog with the OK button.

Changing the Tree Basefolder (Settings > View > Tree > Management page) also causes the same results.

It may be that changing other Tree settings will also have the same results, but I have not tried that.

Adding or deleting a View from Custom Columns also has the same result. EDIT: now release 603.

So this is a more general problem than first reported.
Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.

The problem disappeared when I started with a fresh FreeCommander.ini. I should have thought of that earlier.
This entire thread can be deleted as far as I am concerned.

Well, in that case maybe there really is something going on. So it's too early to delete this string.
What OS are you using?

Just checking, alf5000: did you close FC before deleting FreeCommander.ini?

I closed FC before.

To be totally sure I tried an absolutely freshly downloaded FCXE601 PORTABLE on another computer (win7) and fooled around a bit with its settings and voila - Favourites Tree keeps opening on both panels when changing curtain settings.

If you don't have anymore issues - perhaps it's the PORTABLE version of FCXE that causes this behavior (I tend to believe this because I can't Compare files with XE601/XE603 (using WinMerge or PSPad) whereas others tell me they don't have problems with it)

Yes, that's a possibility. I'm using an installed version.

Still a problem in 611. I enabled View > Status Bar > Show Spacer Bars, and the Favorites Tree appeared in the visible tabs of both panes. When I moved to a different tab and back, a Folder Tree was opened as well in that tab.

Note that the bug happens when various settings are changed, not just with Tree Per Tab as originally reported.
