ConEmu build: 180114 x64
OS version: Windows 10 LTSB x64
Far Manager: version 3.0 (build 5095) x64

I like to resize FAR panel heights independently by mouse, so I searched for "CtrlUp" in ConEmu sources. I saw shift key already handled.

Shift is used by text-mark by default, so turn it off

Shift-drag-border now shows this:


Same message with v.160416

Because Shift (or other modifiers) used for so many things, I recommend a checkbox in the settings "Move penel heights independently"

Other solutions:

  • a selectable modifier key for independent height-resize
  • Shift-resize priority over Shift-selection (I mean when You are on FAR border, then Shift not select text but resize panel)

Or a combination like "Move penel heights independently by default" checkbox and a selectable modifier key.

Choose the option what needs the minimum efforts!

I think, dragging the panels by the bottom in the center may change size of both panels. So left and right panels may be changed independently without modifiers.

Yes, that would be more elegant. I just presumed that user's default needs is to resize both panels by default :) I made vsplit2.cur for resizing at center:

BTW I using right panel full height (as a "main" panel) and I have a few lines for last command's output below the left panel:

gh-1404: Resize Far Manager panels separately.
  If mouse cursor is over panels bottom edge at center - resize panels heights simultaneously,
  otherwise - resize panels separately.

I having a LUA macro on 'ShiftCtrlUp'/'ShiftCtrlDown' - so independent height resizing calls that macro :(

If "Resize panels by mouse" is in 3rd state, resizing works 👍 It is possible to make resizing interactive when 'ShiftCtrlUp'/'ShiftCtrlDown' is remapped?

Here is a (hot-spot-)fixed cursor:

ConEmu may trigger either macro or sequence of keys.
Macro mode is resource consuming and therefore is not interactive.

Please use fixed .cur I posted on Jan. 30

After that I will close this issue :)
