Colors Configuration

Post by TimeGhost »

In an older version of AS (or maybe SS), I was able to have:

- Read Only files colored Red.

- Compressed files that are not Read Only colored blue.

Now I cannot get both color schemes to be set at once even though the file attributes are mutually exclusive. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Or maybe this is not possible with the latest release?

I'd appreciate it if someone could try this and let me know how it turns out.

I'm running AS v2.5 under Win XP Pro SP2.

The same result would be achieved IMO using these two rules:

1] mask: '*'; attributes: 'read-only set' -> color: 'red'
2] mask: '*'; attributes: 'compressed set' -> color: 'blue'

... where 1] has higher priority. Maybe the priorities was the issue, when you tried it.

Thanks Jan & ether:

I wasn't paying attention to which of the two mask priorities I had highlighted while making the change.

I'm all set!
