ModifiedWithin - A column set which gives you an alternative way to make modified/created items pop out.
I did this, because I make use of file and folder labels more and more, but I got into several situations, where a label would override another because these cannot be priorized or combined.
To never loose the "modified" information in a file display, you now can simply add a narrow column or two to mark newly modified instead of having a label applied.
Marking modified items with a column, also has the advantage of showing "when" in the given timespan it was modified.
One column of this set uses a graph, which shows a red graph for really "hot" items, getting blue for colder items and dissapears for all other.
The other column uses a graph made of characters, this gives some nice alternative and also allows for a 1-char wide column, similar to an icon, to mark modified items.
Since v0.2: There are another two columns which show the number of days since creation and modification (no preview screenshot for these yet).
Compared to the modified-label I used before, the new columns add some eye candy as well I think, labeling items bold also always screwed up my column layout.
Is done in the script config dialog, you can change the timespans, column headers, default widths and the characters used e.g.
To install the columns, download the *.js.txt file below and drag it to Preferences / Toolbars / Scripts.
After that, the columns shall be ready to use. Add them by right clicking any column header and look for the columns/scripts submenu.
Consider installing the ScriptWizard for easy updating of these columns and more.
