Strange bug in TAB-History with "cm_GotoPreviousDir"

Post by *aksmfakt132 » 2019-02-24, 00:42 UTC

On one tab (for example, the tab on the right)
I can create multiple tabs by pressing ctrl + t
Let's call those taps 1 2 3 4

Currently, tab 1 2 3 4 is all e drive.

On tab 2 I moved to drive d
On tab 1, I moved to drive c

On tab 2, I used "cm_GotoPreviousDir"
So where should tab2 go?
To my thoughts tab 2 should go to e drive
however, tab 2 moves to drive c

What is the problem?

aksmfakt132,
History is not per tab. There have been some discussions if it should be global or per tab. No definitive conclusion has been reached, AFAIK.

Remember this as a global unit? that's a crazy idea

It's not quite global, it's separate history for left and right panel.

It's per panel - I tried making it per tab, but it was completely unusable. It works in a web browser because you usually use different tabs for different web sites. But in a file manager, all tabs are for the same harddisk. So the directory to which you want to return is very often on a different tab than you are on now...
