DO11: location bar previous location visual style


#1

Is there a possibility to make the grayed-out previous item(s) in location bar also italic? I know it’s grayed-out but still I often get confused. I couldn’t find anything in Preferences.


#2

I think the only option right now is to turn them off entirely.


#3

I went through options (page by page) and searched in help but I can’t find an option to turn it off. :blush:


#4

The manual is still being updated for the new versions but the details are in the beta release notes:

You can add noghostpath to the Location field’s arguments to disable ghost paths entirely, or instead add nopreservepath if you wish to keep ghost paths when going up a level but prevent them from remaining when you switch into a new directory that has the same folders below it.

(Breadcrumbs Configuration has info on where to put the args.)


#5

Thanks leo, this works. I hope there will be style options for ghosted paths in the future as I do like the feature itself but would need to tweak appearance to make it useful to me.


#6

We’ll probably add italics in the next beta, either as the new default or as an option. Jon coded it up as a test and it looks pretty good.


#7

Nice! :thumbsup: Also thanks to Jon for testing my suggestion! :opusicon:


#8

Thanks for the implemented change in beta 6 update!

I’d like to propose one additional visual tweak to the way ghosted path is displayed: make triangle/arrow after the active path also grayed-out. See attached image on which triangle/arrow I mean.


#9

That triangle is part of the path component to its left, not the one to its right.

It appears when the current folder has sub-folders (always has, including in Opus 10) and is not part of the ghost path.
