Quickinfos by filetype

Quickinfos by filetype can be used to display additional information on files based on the content plug-in system.


Configuration dialog to add or change fields of a filetype-specific quickinfo.

To enable quickinfos by filetype the "Show filename in the file list as tooltip if truncated" and "Win32-style tips with file comments" options must be enabled.

Quickinfos by filetype can be configured by pressing the + button on the lower right of the Display page in the configuration dialog.

Click add in the dialog to add a quickinfo by filetype definition. The filetype selection is the same as in the colors by filetype feature. Custom filters and simple filters can be used to define a filetype. After selecting a filter press OK to open the dialog where a quickinfo can be assembled. Use the + button to open the content plug-in repository menu and select the fields to add to the quickinfo. Use \n to add a line break. After closing all dialogs with OK the quickinfo should appear when hovering over all files matching the filter.
