bug_report_tiny.png 01:57  Bug report BE-566 - Crashes connected to image viewing and/or preview pane... (probably)
Smokva (smokva):
Issue created
My OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64
Product Installed: Today

Installation went smoothly. Defaults were generally accepted, including the the quick-start icon on the task bar and start menu. I made only minor tweaks in the options (**NOTE: I preferred the black skin, but could not use it because you did not change your menu text colour to a contrast colour like white or grey. Please fix or allow user to set it! :) **)

The first time something went wrong, I was using a preview pane and it was functioning fine - no issues. And then something happened and I do not know what... but the preview pane froze on a text document within a folder that I was not viewing. I tried changing drives and folders, but the same text document remained showing on the preview pane. No matter what I clicked, preview pane was stuck. While I was still able to click here and there, within minutes the whole program just closed - no freezing, no warning. It just disappeared. It was not on my task bar, It was not in my start menu. It was not on my desktop. Even the Gainedge folder accessed through my windows start button simply said 'empty'. Unfortunately, I am not certain exactly at what point that preview froze or what I tried to click on before BetterExplorer simply so 'I don't think so' and stopped working. Although I was not working with image files, the folders I was working on did have a couple of images that I may have selected to move into another folder. Possible, but I am not certain.

bug_report_tiny.png 21:25  Bug report BE-565 - Zoom widget breaks icons in details view
Siana (siana):
Issue created
Zooming in 'details' folder view breaks display.

It is not expected that details view is zoomable, because Windows file manager does not implement this feature. Making the zoom functionality non-operational, both by greying out the widget and disabling keyboard shortcuts, if any, would be par for the course for the modes where zooming doesn't do anything useful.

Version 2.5.3.161031.10001 RC3, running on Windows 10, 64-bit.


Actually wait a second, it's not just the details view, it's pretty much all views except "Extra Large Icons", "Large Icons", "Medium Icons".
bug_report_tiny.png 20:50  Bug report BE-564 - Easy resize is inoperational.
Siana (siana):
Issue created
At the right edge of the status bar, there is an icon that looks like stairs or a triangle. The purpose of it in UI design is to give a moderately big target to grab so the window can be resized easily, without having to hunt for the border pixel corner or edge. For some people, or depending on input device, it is impossible to hit the narrow target on the window bezel to resize the window reliably due to reduced motor control, it's an important accessibility feature.

However, it doesn't have any visible effect this program.

I would have filed it as a feature request if there was no easy resize icon, however its presence indicates that a feature should be present.

Version is 2.5.3.161031.10001 RC3 64-bit, executed on Windows 10.

feature_request_tiny.png 21:36  Feature request BE-562 - Windows 10 style flat layout
0xmbe (0xmbe):
Issue created
Now that we have passed the era of oval buttons from Windows XP and Vista, we have came back to the Windows 98 flat style.
Can you give me an option to have a flat layout. I'm talking about Tabs.
Additionally also update the buttons. Vista is history.
feature_request_tiny.png 21:31  Feature request BE-561 - Folder size in the explorer
0xmbe (0xmbe):
Issue created
I would like to have an option to be able to see the size of the folder in the "Size" column.
I know this can be process heavy, so make it on separate thread, so I can use the explorer without disturbing in the meantime.
You can update the folder sizes values after all the redrawing has been done to the application, it is not important that the size is filled immediately after I open the folder.

Columns width not saved after tab changed.
I'm new to this alternative explorer and this can be a deal breaker for me.

bug_report_tiny.png 14:32  Bug report BE-556 - Tab management: incomplet update after group delete
Megaten (Megaten):
Issue created
When you delete a group into the tab management, the item into the group column is blanked, not the detail: item folder list.
So the problem is the following:
Close the tab manager ( TM) windows and reopen it
==> the group deleted is still into the select list
the group is still into the group list.

So your proposal will be a good solution to improve this issue.
