i have replaced the default format why MY default format.
Then i want to give some folder a custom view.something that i already did but there is a strange behaviour
when i chage the view of a folder because i want to give a custom format,ALL folders take that format. why? i'm changing only that folder to save custom format. All other folders whould keep the default format.
what i do is just changing the view from "details" to list or tile (those are the 3 i use)
I change because i want a folder to have "tile" view,but only that folder (and others i would change later)
but i after i change the view for that folder,ALL folders have "tile" view,except the ones that already have a custom format with a different view. So it seems that this action overwrite the default format until i restart DO (but many times even restarting doesn't solve the problem) or i go in folder options and reset to user default format.
To change the view i just click the button on the toolbar
If you are viewing a directory and make changes to the folder format (e.g. by switching to thumbnails mode, or adding, removing or sorting by a column), then your change will continue to be applied, within the current window only, when you go to other folders, unless those folders trigger an explicit format change.
You can use the Folder Formats menu to explicitly reset the format. (Alternatively, just close the current window and open a new one, which is often quicker.)
To save a special format for a folder, open Folder > Folder Options and click the Save button.
Or you can create a Path format under Preferences / Folders / Folder Formats, which is also where you can review and edit all similar formats.
After saving a new format, it's best to close any open listers and test in fresh ones to ensure you're testing what happens with a new window, without any remembered state due to the Temporary Formats of Cached Formats functionality described in the FAQ.
First, let's make sure your default format is correct. Some of this may be redundant, but it will clean up any mess in the folder formats which might be causing confusion.
Set up a lister the way you want things to look by default (List View or whatever you want).
Open Folder / Folder Options, click Save, then choose Save format for all folders (make this the default)
Also chose Clear any saved folder formats and Replace the folder format in layouts and saved folder tabs, assuming you don't want layouts etc. to override the format.
Click OK to make it save things as specified in the dialog.
Make sure Preferences / Launching Opus / Default Lister / Ignore folder format of Default Lister is turned on. This will stop the default lister messing with your format, which might be causing confusion.
Now, to save a format for just D:\Music to be in Tile View:
Go to D:\Music and switch to Tile View.
Open Folder / Folder Options, click Save, then choose Save format for a folder and click OK.
Close all the Opus windows you have open. Then open a fresh window to test things in.
unfortunately that doesn't solve the problem
Points 1 2 and Save i already know and they doesn't mena anything in this situation
After point 1 here,the problem is that ALL FOLDERS switch to Tile view. i already said 3 times,honestly i don't know why you don't understand. My english is bad but i'm sure that this is correct.
I don't want ALL FOLDERS to become in tile view but only the one i'm in at that moment.
Then if i save or not the format for that folder doesn't mean anything for our problem,because sadly ALL FOLDERS already have the wrong view and i have to reset.
you gave no instruction,because i don't need THOSE instructions. i don't need to know how to save format,or how to set a new format. there are buttons. it's easy to do.
But when i do,i change everything and not only the current folder,you have to give me instruction about how to edit only the current folder.
i'm not testing anything. i open DO from the toolbar and i use it,i change view and everthing changes as i already explained 4 times now.
my problems are not when i open DO,but after i change the view!!!!
To open the sofware I clik on the .exe that i put on the toolbar.
It's like the default user format changes every time i change the view in a folder,so the folderse that don't have a custum format all gets the new default format
it means that also D:Movies, C:Programs,C:Users etc etc....ALL FOLDERS..you know "all" or "every"?? Choose the one you prefer for your language.
So ALL or EVERY folder that doesn't already have a custom path format,changes the view. As i edited while you were writing, it seems that my default user format auto-updates when i change. but it only seems because if i reset i return to List
and i asked how to avoid this. i want to change only the current folder not ALL folders.
i know that if i want to keep a custom format i have to save manually because DO doiesn't remember the settings,but i don't want that everyhing changes when i didn't ask for it
So every time people has to reset manually when changing folder? There is no sense for this behavior.
Also because main problem here is that i made a button that changes the view because i need to view a folder in more than one way. So that folder has a custom format that i seen when i click on the folder on the bookmark bar (or when i navigate to he folder),then i made a button that changes view,remove some columns and add other colums,ples grouping fiiles.
After i use that button,i go to a different folder that doesn't have a custum format,i keep seeing that format that i made just for that folder!
You are saying that the only solution is to give EVERY folder on my PC a custom format?
The default custom format should do this. I have already chosen the format i want for my folder,escept for the ones that have a different one.
