Hi, just a couple of bugbears regarding your latest version.

  1. The 'info' panel has been modified such that the permissions information is now on a separate tab, requiring an extra click to see the information. Small thing I know, but for someone working with your program all day it means constant clicking back and forth between tabs to see the 'general' and 'permissions' information - each one doesn't have that much information, why not leave them on the same tab?

  2. Modifying permissions - the apply button has been removed and now it automatically populates permissions information on a per click basis. This makes updating permissions for multiple items a serious pain, as every time you click a checkbox it runs through the whole list and makes the change, before you can check another one! Obviously is worse the longer the list of files / folders you are changing permissions for... not sure why this is a better way of doing it ??

  3. Bug - updating the permissions doesn't update the value listed in the 'permissions' column in the file window - one has to click the refresh button to see the new permissions listed. Again, this is a change / bug as it previously worked fine.

I've been using your program for many years now and have always vouched for it, unfortunately these few changes you've made have really baffled me as they seem enormously counter-productive!

We will additionally have ACL settings in the permission tab for 3.6.

We will revert to a push button to apply permissions recursivly.

  1. Bug - updating the permissions doesn't update the value listed in the 'permissions' column in the file window - one has to click the refresh button to see the new permissions listed. Again, this is a change / bug as it previously worked fine.

Refreshing the directory listing might be time consuming and therefore has to be refreshed manually.
