Back to ARCA
« on: July 04, 2022, 10:01:57 pm »
Greetings All,

I am giving Arca another go on my thinkpad 430s and there are a couple things I know I figured out before but cant seem to remember how to today.  One my touch pad works as expected but cannot use it to scroll? Was this ever working or was I imagining that?  Also there is a way to drill down into folders without opening a new window, I just dont recall how to do that... I did get it to work with my 1080 laptop screen that I installed so thats awesome!

Glad to be back, Hope everyone is well

Regards,

Rick

About your scrolling, I can't help as I use a USB mouse.  For drilling down I just double click on the folder and put up with lots of windows, but if I'm working on files I just use the FC/2 program as a one screen file handler.  Using it means I rarely  have to just open folders directlly.  Just a thought.

When you use Shift + Enter to open an object, it opens that object and at the same time closes the parent object that contains the object you just opened.

Open the Drives Properties, go to Window and on the first page click Display existing window and on the 2nd page choose the automatic close folder you want?

Another option is to use the 'Xview' view of a folder. Subfolders started from its tree open in the same window. You can make that default via System Setup -> Workplace Shell, "Folder Views" tab, Default folder view: (o) Xview
