Now if you can manage it for free, well I'll show the good grace to accept it pronto.[/quote]
Just a question for those who support the tabbed feature request. If it were to happen, how would you resolve a problem such as that one which began this thread? Meaning suppose you want to drag and drop a file that's in lister tab "A" into another lister tab?[/quote]
Exactly what steje has said:
...implement Tabbed Listers in much the same way as most any other app worth it's salt has done by offering the same sort of Window management used in most GUI oriented OS's...[/quote]
If tabs were not implemented in this manner, it would be a step back. As I have said, the advanced lister config would need to be implemented with internal windows and a standard MDI for it to be completely worthwhile. Also, I would still like the option of being able to have another instance of DO open (like now).
Thanks a lot steje for making and posting screenshots of how it should be implemented.
Well you would (hypothetically) just drop onto the tab itself, I would have thought.[/quote]
And another thing that I think this interface would benefit would be the use of lister styles. I don't know about others, but for me, switching lister styles (from dual/commander to single) results in a loss of the right lister folder that drives me crazy. By having a tab/MDI interface, switching styles would automatically position/switch/move the internal windows just like they do now with the one's not being used in the background/minimized and NOT LOST.
Lastly, I currently have a toolbar positioned vertically between my two listers. It would be nice if I would still be able to do this with an MDI interface, but if it couldn't happen, I wouldn't mind at all. I would much more prefer tabs--just a thought.
Now if this was offered for free, I would gladly accept and I would definately tell everybody how great a program it is. Of course, that wouldn't be any different from how it is now. Or if it wasn't offered for free, I would tell everybody to never touch this software lol, j/k
