Small fixes + Rudi joins the battle

@Mister_Magister, you seem to have accidentally uploaded the aarch64 RPM of nanofiles-1.3.2-1 twice here (both are displayed as nanofiles-1.3.2-1.aarch64.rpm, but the second, final upload was renamed by OpenRepos), but missed to upload the i486 version.

Please rectify this by deleting nanofiles-1.3.2-1.aarch64_0.rpm and uploading nanofiles-1.3.2-1.i486.rpm.  Thanks!

The issue that levone1 described happens to me randomly. Sometimes I do see the toolbar with the Paste button, sometimes it's not there

Mister_Magister's picture

That's very strange it never disappears for me

levone1's picture

I think I realized that the issue is just that it is very touch-sensitive and doesn't show any graphical feedback, so a very light inadvertent touch will clear your command-action and / or copy / paste your selection to the immediate directory without you realizing it... If I'm very careful and mindful it doesn't happen.

lxmx's picture

Steps to reproduce: copy and paste one file. Then select the pasted file and try to cut it. Expected result: the bottom bar should stay and allow me to paste the file. Actual results: 1. The bottom bar disappears 2. An empty nanofiles.tar.gz file appears in the directory

Curious - why make a start-as-root app for Filecat, which is buggy with reading sd cards, but not one for Fileman, which is superior overall, or, at least for nanofiles?

Mister_Magister's picture

nanofiles has root mode inbuilt, fileman is dropped, and no idea what you mean about filecat i didn't do that

levone1's picture

Sorry - I got my Storeman page links mixed up... I thought I was asking Rudi.... Thanks for this app. Ever since Fileman was released, I've been waiting for a root mode, (although I just start it as root anyway), but je never released it. Then I saw his release for root mode for filecat, which seems kind of buggy... Anyway , thanks

Mister_Magister's picture

You are encouraged to try nanofiles though!

levone1's picture

Very nice. Sorry if I'm missing something, but how to paste, after highlighting, and clicking scissors or clipboard? When I navigate to the directory I want to paste to, I can't find anyway to get the paste option...

lxmx's picture

I really like the file selection and the long tap actions bar - the best UX amongst all SFOS file managers. One annoyance I can see is: when you swipe to go back to the parent directory the file list doesn't refresh immediately - still showing the old contents. So for a fraction of a second you feel lost. I wonder if this can be improved with a visual effect.

Mister_Magister's picture

It could yeah i just picked easiest way to do it as for now, if i/somone gets better idea then i'll change it, but thanks for opinion

Really good!!!

Right now it only previews on jpg files and not png, but for the first version it's really awesome!

There is something wrong with SD Card in Places. If you don't have sd card and open for example Music directory from Places then back to Places by swipe and tap on SD Card then you will see empty card with "Music" title on the top. If you open Downloads before SD Card then title will be "Downloads" etc.

Mister_Magister's picture

perhaps the dir is just empty / doesn't exist

How to edit a .qml file?, is editing possible?

Mister_Magister's picture

nope, use text editing software not file browser software.
