Retain directory size while moving up/down the dir-tree

Post by Chicken » 15 Jul 2006, 21:16

Hello,
by pressing ctrl+shift+F10 Salamander displays the size of directories. Since this takes some time dependend on the amount of data stored in the directories, I would be nice to retain the size information when you change into a subdirectory. Means that you immediately get the size information of the directories included in this subdirectory.

Is it possible to change the settings somehow to get this behavior?

Sorry if this was discussed already, but I did not find any information about that topic.

greetings

No, not right now, but this would be nice if it would be so!

Right now you have to have the dirs with the size in the left panel
and the same path in the right panel, where you can digg into the subfolders,
while the dir size is still seen in the left panel.

i.e.
- left and right the same path
- use left for see the size
- use right for browse
