Missing information about <Compare>Max Setting in Help

The behaviour described in the bug report is either by design, or would be far too complex/time-consuming to be changed

Missing information about <Compare>Max Setting in Help

Post by *misvin » 2017-11-18, 20:29 UTC

Hi,
I suggest to add information about CompareMax, RenameMax, SearchMax and other *Max parameters to the Help file.

Please see the page "Settings in the file wincmd.ini - Part 2" => Section "[1024x768 (10x20)]".

Today there is a description of another setting:
maximized=0______0=normal, 1=maximal size

BTW, maybe for consistency, *Max (ex. RenameMax) should be changed to *Maximized (ex. RenameMaximized) OR Maximized to Max?

Additional information about *Max parameter:

They are included in these descriptions:
Compare*= Same for the compare window
Rename*= Rename dialog
Search*= Search dialog
SelectDuplicates*= Dialog to select duplicate files
Sync*= Synchronize dirs

I think that people who check these ini file options are intelligent enough to figure out that the CompareMax parameter is equivalent to the maximized option of the main window.

There is a small problem: Search for CompareMax or other *Max parameters in the Help file (Search Tab => Type in the keyword to find) returns "No topics found."

Yes, but that's true also for CompareX, CompareY etc. I don't want to clutter the help with all these names which have the idential structure for all sections.
