Of all the file mangers in the world, Filer is the only one I ever got Amiga DOS errors.

Err, isn't it a GOOD thing that Filer actually tells you what the problem is, rather than silently failing?

I don't understand your thinking: If you stopped using every app that had a bug, you would soon be using NO apps at all! Instead you should file a helpful bug report with the author, and then hope it get's fixed.

(A "helpful" bug report is one that (a) describes in detail what happens, (b) gives many details of your system, e.g. OS version & hardware, and (c) describes exactly what you must do to recreate the problem every time.)

I believe AmigaOS should have it's own file manager!

Filer is actually a really good app, albiet still under development, and being part of OpenAmiga is offered to Hyperion to use in AmigaOS (perhaps integrating into Workbench?).

Tested new filler (53.28b), and i like a lot the new button at the top/right area (where i can choice previous directoryes in which i was before). That is very usable (it was introduced only in that version ?)

Goot also that you have added "drag&drop like WB" option, that will solve all the problems for all the users who want copy or movie the files by drag&drop.

Drag&drop itself works fine, can drag many files at time, dirs, etc (but still a bit not user friendly because of these "unmarks", but i talk about it before in other topic).

Now a one more suggestion :)

I ask about it before, but you say that you not in interest about supporting this, but, still, will try again: maybe you can add just a options which will sounds like "2panel style". And when that option on, just 2 filler windows (just 2 separate programms), but stay clossed beetwen. Imho, that must be pretty easy by code to implement that for now , and, for ppls (like me) who suck with all these copy-destination-dopus5 like stuff, can use it more offten.

You can for example add to the code just separate source called "2panel.c", and put all the crap here (which will be no many, just split 2 panels together and maybe catch some new keys, like "Tab" for swith beetwen panels).

That is just a suggestion of course, but imho, with that, it will be very good because Filer will be fully configurable for any users needs. It's already pretty usable , but still, for those "copy" thinks i use dopus4 ..

The one point plus to the 2panel style option, it's that for example user have 2 fillers, want to move file beetwen, for now it's Drag&drop and alt, it's ok, but, when i have 20 programms running , then for bringing filler back, i need found 2 windowses, but with case of "2panel" style option it will be like 1 window, which i can move (and need found only one window, over all the others).

But that is just a suggestion of course :)

if understand right, you are talking about the possibilty to add the tabs ?? so instead of having 2 filers open you have 1 filer but 2 tabs ?

Will be ok in any case:) I mean if it will be like "2 tabs/panels" of one filler which will be swithces by on/off in options - it will be ok.

Or , let's it be 2 fillers, but which connected beetwen, and maybe placed in one window.

Any way will be cool (the end idea, make filler possible to be as like dopus5, and as like dopus4 by idea).

I suspect that he doesn't want to have two panels (ala DOpus 4), because (a) we already have DOpus 4, and (b) it would complicate the code.

Perhaps he could avoid complicating the existing code, by having a special executable that creates a two panel window. Such a window would 'simply' create two instances of Filer's GUI, instead of one. Might be easy, or might be hard, depending on how his GUI code works.

But you agree that will not be not bad to have that option in filler ? :) I still think, that it will be not so hard to implement, because Orgin are good coder, and (i think) he planned filer well by structs in source code, etc.

@orgin
Have to say something about ?:)

Closing this old thread now.
