nice file manager. Please, add possibility for select and actions for some files.

You mean multi selection? 

I am all ears on how to implement this in a sane manner. 

oxygenh's picture

yes, multi selection. It can realizes like it in gallery app?

llelectronics's picture

Good idea. I will take a look at it.

Thanks so much for the FM. I like every function.
I have one question, exist a specific motive for that RAR support is not implemented?

llelectronics's picture

I don't have anything implemented for archives besides opening them up with the default archiver. 

I think rar support depends on certain licenses which Jolla did not get for supporting it.

Strange behavior with txt files. Try to view a file, close it, then open an other one: the first file still appears on top of the 2nd one.

llelectronics's picture

Thanks for reporting. This is fixed now on git and will come in the next version. 

objectifnul's picture

OK. Thx.
However, I'm afraid it's urgent, as users may damage txt files when editing them.

New version will be released then next week after a few more translations and other bugfixes will flow in.
