Keep Back-Arrow in first line (on top) of the TC-windows

Post by *mausebär » 2018-06-04, 20:41 UTC

It would be fine and faster at work if the "Return-Arrow" were kept visible in the first line (on top) of the TC-windows... At the moment it disappears while scrolling the TC-windows-contents...

So a fast return to the higher directory were possible without scrolling back to the top by clicking with the mouse on the arrow...

Or is it adjustable that the arrow is kept in the first line...?

Regards,

Wolfgang

The "Return-Arrow" is a ".." command.
The same is already available all the time at the top right corner of each panel for this purpose.

I've been working now for almost 20 years with TC, but I haven't noticed that by now... :oops:
I'm afraid I have still much to learn... :!:

...all these hints work...
However, there is still one reason to keep the arrow visible in the first line:

If one has a long list of objects in the window and wants to copy or move an object into the higher directory above, he needs to scroll the whole list up until the arrow line appears... Then he can drag&drop the object. Would be much faster if the arrow line were alsways visible.

Should not be too much programming work...

With "breadcrumb bar" enabled (Configuration -> Layout), you could drag a set of selected files onto the directory path to copy the files one or more levels above the current directory.

I normally access the Return-Arrow by pressing Home, Enter. I did not know about the Backspace key.

How about working with relative paths?
Just use '..' in F5 or F6 dialog ('..' == one level up, to parent directory, see MS-DOS schematic, same as you would use with 'cd ..' in command line interpreter "DOS-Box")

Yes, this works too...
However, I find that D&D is much faster...
