double-click folder to expand; not to rename

Post by quapurna » Fri Oct 17, 2014 7:32 pm

Halo.

If I double-click a folder which has sub-folder, I want xnviewmp to expand the folder instead of calling rename command.

I know I can expand folder by clicking the 'arrow' icon. To me, it is much easier to double-click the folder-name because the arrow icon is so small.

Does the option for the above already exist? Where is it ?

Thanks.

Hi, Pierre.
I forgot to inform that the option: General > File Operations > "Use dialog to rename file/folder" was checked/selected.
So, if I double-click the folder (in other words: click the already selected folder), the rename dialog appears.
I see that if we cancel the rename dialogue, the folder is expanded.

Anyway, I have unchecked that option and double-clicking now expands the folder properly.

Thanks.

Hi Pierre,

I have noticed the same behaviour.
Only if the General, File operations, Use dialog to rename file option is unchecked, folders can be expanded with doubleclick (which is what we want, I guess).

But then we miss the rename dialog for files...

Would it be possible to seperate the rename folder and rename file behaviour?

Kind regards,
Han
