Request: Give add-column: an index offset parameter.

Post by raccoon »

The add-column: function takes column property names for input and shows them using the last known ordering or adds them to the right of all the other columns. I'd like to specify a starting index to indicate that columns should be inserted at a given spot. Example:

add-column:artist;album

add-column:3,artist;album

This would make the artist column index 3, and the album column index 4.

I will consider an option to specify the column index.
Thank you for the suggestion.

A :index suffix might work:
add-column:artist:3;album:4



For now, please try the columns: search function.

For example:
columns:name;path;size;dm;artist;album

Columns are added in the order specified.

Please note:
columns: currently keeps the specified columns after changing your search.
The next alpha update will only temporarily add these columns.

Everything 1.5.0.1313a improves columns:

columns: will now only temporarily set the visible columns and order.
columns will be restored as soon as the search is cleared.

For example:

columns:name;path;size;dm;artist;album
