Re: DOpus5 frustration

I was a DM2 user for many years as well. I switched to DOpus5 with WB 3.1 or 3.5 and loved it. As Kras1e mentiones Dopus5 is a beast with a vast amount of configuability. It takes time to get it setup properly but when it does it just sings.

Two tricks for working with Dopus5 on AmigaOS4. First, holding shift while clicking a file will launch by icon. Second, swtching the view to "icon" (right click the title bar) will show pretty much the standard WB window, it will also use DefIcons so files types will be recongnized.

I hope Dopus5 development has not stopped. I'd like to see their built in file system be replaced by DefIcons, or atleast use Deficons as a fall back before the sniffer dialog.

I'd also like to see all the Dopus customized prefs be placed in to ENV: so they are not over writen when a new version is copied over.

To kras1e and the Dopus5 team, thank you whole heartedly for your efforts!
