Minor Bug (Crash)

Post by froggie »

1. In Everything 1292a - Open Folders pane, select a folder - folder shows in lower right of status bar
2. Close Folders pane (click on X)
3. Folder name remains in status bar, (as it should?)
4. Double click on folder name in status bar - ET crashes (Windows 7 Message "Everything has stopped working")

Why?
Because that is what is showing as a search result. Should it be cleared from the search when the folder pane is closed? Then you would be left with just the additional terms in the search box, which seems confusing.

Thank you for the bug report froggie,

Everything 1.5.0.1294a fixes a crash when clearing the active folder from the status bar.


Everything 1.5.0.1294a adds a treeview_clear_selection_on_close ini setting.

To clear the active folder selection when the folder sidebar is closed:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /treeview_clear_selection_on_close=1
  • If successful, treeview_clear_selection_on_close=1 is shown in the statusbar for a few seconds.
