After clicking a bookmark set focus to file window

Post by MHX »

With bookmarks you can quickly change to a specific folder.
If you click a bookmark in order to switch to that folder, you most likely want to browse the files in that folder.
Therefore, I suggest to switch the focus to the window part with the files instead of leaving the focus on the bookmark part.

I would like to do this:
- click on a bookmark (folder changes to the chosen one and first picture is automatically selected and shown in preview window)
- press cursor down to go trough the files in the open folder

What I need to do right now:
- click on a bookmark
- click in folder/file pane
- press cursor down key to go trough the files in the open folder


Thanks,
Michael

the problem is if you use keyboard to navigate to bookmark, focus will be changed too

I would think that this behaviour is wishful for both mouse activated or by keyboard.
Because I think one opens a bookmark in ordner to get to that folder, and then no navigate within that folder, no?
(Or I wish an option for that, in my case I use bookmarks a lot, but I often forget to click again in the folder pane - I am used that the focus switches on itself from old ACDSee 3.1.)

In the new versions I cannot find the new option, yet. Is it still on your agenda, please?
