Open only certain file types in full-screen mode?

Post by snow-snow »

Hello! Is it possible to skip certain file types (like PDF and video) in full-screen “view all files in folder” mode? I see the settings for Browser (Browser → File list) but they seemingly do not affect the full-screen mode behavior at all.
Thank you.

In settings>File list>Custom filter, you can disable Video & PDF for 'show in preview'
Settings>View>Misc - Show video

Thank you 🙏 but it does not work for me. Unchecking the checkboxes has no effect in full-screen.

Ok, however strange this sounds but the option works if I don’t make the thumbnail strip to appear (it’s set to auto-hide). After I look at the thumbnails at least once, the full-screen view starts showing PDFs and videos.

To me it looks as if the file filter is not applied properly to the thumbnails shown in fullscreen mode. :bug:

I can't reproduce, if 'View>Mist - Show video' if off, video files will not be loaded in fullscreen, even if i use the thumbnail strip
Is it the 1.0?
