[fixed] 770 - Can't use multi-select via keyboard in search results

#1 Post by larsen » 31.01.2018, 14:49

Steps to reproduce:
- Search for some files and have a search result
- Press and hold Ctrl
- Use cursor down/up to activate another file while keeping the current selection

Instead of being able to select multiple non-continues files with the keyboard, Ctrl+Up/Down only closes/opens the upper part of the search dialog.

This should be changed to have the standard functionality as in Windows Explorer and all other file managers/programs I know.
Close/Open should be changed to something like Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down

Original problem fixed in 771, but now when I want to select a file by pressing Ctrl+Space, it switches from the search dialog back to FreeCommander.

Ctrl+Space is a standard keyboard shortcut for "Open location in inactive panel" - it's not a but IMO.

Perhaps the shortcuts for "Open location" and "Open location in inactive panel" could be customizable, but default shortcuts are good and useful. It's still possible to export items to main FC window and use standard shortcuts for selecting.

That option has been added in release 772:
- Implemented: Option for search dialog to define in the section [fcSearchForm] of the file FreeCommander.find.ini: OpenLocationChangeShortcut=1 if the shortcut should be changed from Ctrl+Space to Alt+Space
Thx!
