I will try and explain what I'm trying to do.
I'm running a duel lister setup, in the left lister (window) I have large icons as my default view (this is fine) and I don't need to use folder lock, so that image folders auto change to thumbnails.
now here is the issue, I want my right lister to be details, I have somewhat managed this by selecting details and selecting folder lock for that lister, but when I double click the desktop (no lister is open) and it loads a lister, the right lister reverts to details for my computer (I assume because of the folder lock?) but this isn't what I want. A I want my computer to keep as large icons, then change to details when I double click a drive.
also because of folder lock for the right lister, folder folders don't auto change either. but if I remove the folder lock, all the tabs that I have got for each drive, reverts back to large icons again. (not what I want)
I have tried a few attempts to try and keep the settings for each lister separate, (large icons on the left lister and details for the right) but using folder options seems to effect both listers, and this seems to be the case if I try and edit folder format. so I can't seem to find a way to keep each lister with it's own settings, its either large icons or details view, but I can't have both at the same time without one lister reverting to the other.
I've been following this guide for DO 11
and from that I assume that both listers had their own settings, but this isn't the case, unless I'm missing something simple. I gone through the folder format quickstart guide, but it seems to effect both listers.
please help, as I'm tearing my hear out, it should be dead easy to select a view and keep it to that view, but it's not.
Thanks in advance, and I hope I have explained well enough what I want, but if you need more info please ask.
