Increasing privacy a bit? (settings for wincmd.ini / RedirectSection and such)

Post by *brontosaurusrex »

So from time to time I tend to transfer all my settings around total commander from machine a to b or vice versa. Machine b might be the one where some other user have to use it from time to time.

a. Looking at wincmd.ini, it has some memories I rather not transfer, for example:

Code: Select all

[RightHistory]
[LeftHistory]
[RenameSearchFind]
[RenameSearchReplace]
[NewFileHistory]
[SearchName]
[SearchIn]
[MkDirHistory]
[left] path=
Probably more

Could all this be in separated file (memories.ini)?

b. Also I notice that the field named 'Installdir' or similar is generated with absolute path to the installation, the app seems to function just fine without it.

c. Buttonbar is also absolute path, i'd prefer something like

Code: Select all

Buttonbar=%COMMANDER_PATH%\DEFAULT.BAR
to avoid confusion (perhaps only if program dir ini location is selected at install time?)

d. Also related to portability, when on updated version I tend to click over Configuration gui, when closed and reopened it doesn't remember the last active tab, tedious (It doesn't get any smaller with each version).

brontosaurusrex,

Yes, it can! See Help - Configuration and Switches - Ini file Settings.

Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.
