Freely adjustable Splitter

#1 Post by Forez » 24.05.2023, 21:13

Currently the Splitter can be set to a position of 0 / 100, 25, 50 and 75%

How about making it able to be grabbed and just moved by how much a user needs? And after a quick double left-click or double middle-click executed on its empty area set it back to the default 50-50%; or to a default chosen in Settings by a given user?

I use a 21:9 aspect ratio monitor with the window of FreeCommander always being maximized- and when I need to manually / visually compare side by side content of two folders with short item names, in order for it to be effective I have to resize the overall window and then maximize it back, while also adjusting the not maximized mode beforehand. And there users with 32:9 monitors

It is already possible for years, just use the left part of the splitter bar, left click and move, or left double click to set to to 50:50.

I must have dozed off when I was writing this


But still: how about making it possible to grab it by its empty space between its left and right edges, near the top and down of its column [and also on hozontal Separators]?

I just hate it when I have to aim precisely for any element that has as little as ~3 pixels of size

It can be changed to 2 - 12 pixels in Settings - View - General.

Unfortunately that is 2-12 pixels x2 of horizontal space that a user will loose for a bloated element
