Rules for Queuing and making Queuing more easy to access

Post by ruffy » 18 Jul 2007, 12:28

The queueing feature finally propelles Altap way ahead all the other file managers, it was the final reason for me to purchase it.

Now queuing is a frequently used feature and as someone else in this forum proposed it should probably be made default for all copy/move actions.
But what about providing a possibilty for the user to set a MB value in the configuration at which the copy/move is queued or not queued.
For example i would define that all files below 100mb should be transfered immediately, but above that, they should be queued in case another transfer is in progress. That way you would give smaller files transfer priority.

Secondly:
Right now to set the copy/move to queuing you have to click on "options" and then check the "wait until all other Copy/Move operations are finished" box. It is tiring if you are moving files a lot, like i do.

So my vision would be to select a file, press F6 and be presented with a dialog like the one right now, but additionally with a checkbox for queueing/notqueuing right next or under the filepath-field. And this checkbox should be pre-checked or pre-unchecked based on the file size rules i defined in my configuration.

What do you think?

A Checkbox in configuration for how to handle copy/move progress would be kewl.

I handle thousands of files on our network, its annoying to open dozen
copy windows ^^'''

1. no auto queue
2. auto queue files if already a copy/move progress is running
3. queue copy/move progress till i start the queue (like in flashfxp - full edit able queue manager)

I also need this feature.
I need Wait until all other Copy/Move operations are finished to be checked by default (configurable).
It would be cool if it would be checked by default if specific HDD is already involved in an existent copy/move operation.

I use ftp software like wsftp and CuteFTP Pro - I would like to see a queueing box like on those in Salamander, wouldn't that be great!

What magic word do I need to say in order to see this option? I also need it. I use version 2.52 beta 1.

Would you or anyone else please tell me where exactly I can find this option? It doesn't seem to be present in my copy of Salamander (2.52 b1 on Windows Vista).

You have to check the F5's Copy dialog options. (or use the Alt+w shortcut).

The Alt+W shortcut is ok, but an option like "remember all options for next copy/move" will be really nice.
Beacuse there are more then one option, I wish for default.

Is it possible, to queuing also all unpacking operations too? By default / by option / by shortcut ...

Note: archiver operations doesn't run on background. We plan to implement it, but not at a near future.

From Altap Salamander 2.53 it will be possible to Save Copy/Move options as default.

Was this put in? I cannot seem to find the option in both 2.54 and the 3.0 beta.

Open Copy Dialog (press F5 on a file/dir)
Expand Options
Checkmark, Wait until all other options...
Click the down-arrow in the Options box at the bottom (OK Cancel Options Help)
