Selection of panel bottom selects the last file/dir

Post by *Hemlikevew »

Hi,

Selection of panel bottom selects the last file/dir then files/dirs quantity in panel is less than required to trigger scrolling. Show mode for panel have to be set to Full or others, but not Brief.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make sure files/dirs quantity in panel is less than required to trigger scrolling (no scroll bar).
2. Click left mouse button on empty area below the last file/dir and drag mouse to panel bottom.
3. The last file/dir in panel is selected despite it is outside of selected area.

TC 9.22a (the same observed in 9.21a and could be even in earlier versions); Windows 10.

Hope it helps.

This doesn't happen here, TC 32-bit and 64-bit with fresh wincmd.ini, tested with Windows 10 1803 and 1809.

Hi,

Rechecked after fresh install and found that Configuration - Operation - Mouse selection mode - Left mouse button (Windows standard) have to be selected.

EDIT: "Rubber band selection" have to be enabled aswell.

Hope it helps.

Strange, still doesn't happen here, only when I move the rubberband over the file...

I can confirm Hemlikevew's observation - it happens when you drag the rubberband area below the bottom border of the file panel (keep moving the cursor downward when you reach the bottom).

Testet under Windows 7 and 10 with fresh ini file, except for the LMB selection mode setting

No, doesn't happen here, neither with TC 32-bit nor 64-bit. I'm on Windows 10 1803.

The only thing I see is that the file under the cursor becomes red (=selected) while I hold down the right mouse button over the empty space. But the selection goes away when I release the right mouse button.

It is in "Left mouse button (Windows standard)" mode with "Rubber band selection" enabled this happens, so it is with the left mouse button pressed you have to drag below the lower panel border

No color change here when using the left mouse button.

It is so peculiar, I can reproduce it on any OS with a clean ini after enabling left mouse button selection mode, and dragging with the left mouse button down below the status line. NOTICE you have to release the mouse button while the cursor is BELOW the file panel.

Hi everybody,
I could reproduce this issue as well but only in two cases out of three :
- Thumbnail view : Select the file
- All file details : Select the file
- Only file name : DO NOT SELECT THE FILE

If it can help,
Have a nice day, Frederic.
