Detail view does not seem to be "sticky"

Reported by: b@lzy.sh Owned by: alamaison
Priority: minor (e.g. uncommon, cosmetic, has workaround) Milestone: 0.90 Beta 1
Component: frontend Version: 0.6.1
Keywords: detail view Cc:


When I set detial view it doesn't apply to sub folders and files. Everytime I go into a new directory it's back to Tile view. Great program, been wanting something like this for a while.

Are you noticing this more with Swish than with normal Explorer folder. Which version of Windows? I've found Explorer to be pretty rubbish at being sticky all the time in Vista and 7.

You're right, it is pretty inconsitent. I use Windows 7 64 bit. I do notice it in others folders from time to time but for Swish it is every folder all the time. Everytime I change to a sub directory I need to go from Tile to detail view. I'll poke around windows maybe I can change that globally somewhere. Love seeing the unix file permissions in detail view, good stuff. I'd love to see user:group as well. I'll submit a enhancement bug If I can't find anything already listed.

Another possibility would be to set it in the Explorer settings. At the moment the "set for all folders" (sorry, I don't know the original English text) is disabled, see screenshot:


If we could set the "current view" for "Swish folders", it would be brilliant.

Likewise, running Win 7 Pro 64. My experience exactly as described above.
