[Share] fyi: properly show filetype and image size in thumbnail view mode

Post by *doneykoo » 2019-05-11, 03:54 UTC

Hi, all

problem background
one problem is that in thumbnail view, filename and ext are cropped when they are too long.
so that I can't tell whether they are images, or videos.
Because they just show preview thumbnails with no-difference.


objective

* always show file type, file size

how to
MENU -> Configuration -> Thumbnails ->
Enable option: [v] Show custom fields below thumbnails
set it to:
[=tc.ext] [=" "tc.size.bkMGT]
result showcase after configuration: Image: https://i.postimg.cc/x8416rNx/Snipaste-2019-05-11-12-18-04-total-commander.png
sample configuration dialog:Image: https://i.postimg.cc/hvjG84vQ/Snipaste-2019-05-11-12-17-41-total-commander.png

Hmm, I use this for "Show custom fields below thumbnails:"

Code: Select all

[=tc.writedate.D-M-y]   [=tc.size.bkMG]
And it looks like this: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/thumbview.png

As you can see the extension is shown in the right side - also for long filenames.

Actually even with the standard setting the filename is shown to the left and the extension to the right under thumbnails: http://madsenworld.dk/tcmd/thumbview2.png.

So you have apparantly set "Configuration" -> "Options..." -> "Tabstops" -> "Show file extensions" to: "directly after filename".

If you set it to "aligned (with Tab)" - you will get it like in my screenshots, but of course you will also have the extension aligned with Tab in Brief View, Full View, Comments View and Custom Columns View - with the advantage of always being able to see the extension
