Grid lines

Post by harryray2 »

It would be nice to be able to have the highlighted line to remain when Everything is not in focus or grid lines in the search window similar to Nirsoft programmes.

When Everything is not in focus it can be difficult to follow the line.

Please try enabling alternate row color:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the View tab on the left.
  • Check Alternate row color.
  • Click OK.
To customize the alternate row color:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Fonts and colors tab on the left.
  • Select Result List.
  • Select Alternate Row.
  • Click the Background color button.
  • Select a new color and click OK.
  • Click OK.


Grid lines are on my TODO list.
Thank you for the suggestion.

Thanks, I already have alternate rows enabled...Grid lines will help a lot.

Is there a way of keeping the row highlighted when I move the focus away from Everything?

I'm not sure what you mean by row highlighted.

The mouseover should be shown when Everything is inactive. (does not have focus)
The alternate row colors should be shown when Everything is inactive.

Everything will use a dimmer color for the selected files when Everything is inactive.
To customize this color:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Fonts and colors tab on the left.
  • Select Result List.
  • Select Inactive Selected.
  • Click the Background color button.
  • Select a new color and click OK.
  • Click OK.

It's the grey bar on the second line...When Everything is inactive the bar disappears.

Could you please send your Everything.ini to support@voidtools.com

I cannot tell the state of the items from your custom colors.

Thanks, I'll send it to you.
Is there a way of retaining the row mouseover (temporarily locking it in place) when I move the mouse away or Everything is inactive?
It works for just highlighting the name but not the full row.

No.

Please try enabling full row select from Tools -> Options -> Results.

I've been mucking around with the grid colours..I'm finding a bit of a Goldilocks and the three bears situation, the default (grey) isn't quite prominent enough and the colours are a bit too prominent.

Is there a way of adjusting the intensity of the lines?

Also, is there an easy way to toggle the grid lines on and off? If there isn't could something be added to the view menu?

When you set the color of the lines you set the intensity. Higher numbers are closer to the white theme background, lower numbers are darker.

So eeeeee is a light gray, 111111 is almost black. The same would apply to colors.
