I'm writing about "13.03.16 Added: Set view modes by directory, type of directory, or files (32/64)"
In Configuration -> View Mode I added new view, named it "Thumbnail", changed its' settings to Thumbnail and sorting by Name (by default I use ext). Then on Auto Switch Mode I added new rule "Must match" and selected directory "D:\Dropbox\zdjecia i filmiki" which was added as D:\Dropbox\zdjecia i filmiki\*. When I entered that firectory it changed to thumbnails and when browsing through subdirectories it stayed that way which is wat is expected. BUT when I went to parent dir eg. D:\Dropbox it didn't change to default view and stayed on thumbnails, even changing to another partition wasn't enough, I had to press Ctrl+F2 to switch to my default view.

What did you enter as view for your default view? If it is 'Unchanged' this means nothing will be changed. Set it to your desired view.

That fixed it. I didn't modify <default> view and it was at "Unchanged". But still, I think it should switch to previous view, as you can have multiple tabs open with different views on every tab, and if on one tab you enter a dir that will autochange view, then if you exit that dir (eg. to parent dir) then it will switch to whatever is set in <default>.

Sorry, but TC can't remember arbitrary number of views.
The default view is the perfect solution for that.

Moderators, please move out this from bug reports as it is not a bug

But it already remembers different views for different tabs (and even stores that info in ini), so it can change to whatever view was set previously on that tab instead to whatever is set in <default>.

For me it's still a bug. It would be nice to see ghisler's opinion on this.

Something which behaves exactly as described can never be a bug.
So you can make a suggestion if you don't like the current behaviour
but in no way a bug report.

The question if the previous view should be restored has been discussed during the beta intensively. In the end it was reduced to the question if the previous view mode could match the task after leaving the auto-switched view mode better than the default view mode. In my opinion this will always never be the case.

Thanks, I didn't knew about it. Still, one simple example, if you set a different view in Windows Explorer for one folder and then you move to parent folder, what view will it load? And yes, I know that Explorer stores custom settings for every folder in registry. I think a good way to "fix" this in TC would be to add "Previous" to dropdown selections in <default> View and for TC to remember them. That way, everyone can be happy Smile
Feel free to move this to Suggestions forum.
