Suggestion about virtual folders - Three new features
08-25-2001, 08:10 PM

I have been working with virtual folders. I think three features would be very useful

1.
TrueLaunchBar can lock all buttons globally
Next version should allow the user lock or unlock buttons locally for *each* folder

2.
TrueLaunchBar can add separators into each folder
Next version should allow titles to be added like separators
Titles would be useful in folders with many buttons when subfolders are not needed

Disk Utilities
button
button
button
-----------------------------
Memory Utilities
button
button
button
-----------------------------
Graphic Utilities
button
button
button
----------------------------

3. Next version should have some way to display number of buttons in folder

The Titles in the menus is good idea!
About third suggestion: Is the menu caption is good place to show number of buttons? Something like this:
My Music (23)
About locking. I can place the global lock into settings dialog and local lock stay in the context menu. I think this will be suitable solution.

Thank you for accepting my suggestions. I think Virtual folders is *the* big TLB selling point. Anything you can do to improve Vfolders is great. Yes MY Music (23) looks best.

One thing that I would suggest but I think it is difficult would be to allow button text to be in different colors. I have always wanted to see the start menu allow colored text but nobody knows how to do it.

What do you think? TLB can change button icons - how about change text color?

Anyway I am eagerly waiting for the new beta!!!

Regarding Panekiller - I don't want to start adding stuff to my system - I just want to suggest small incremental enhancements to TLB that improve on it's core functionality. The less stuff I have running the more stable the system I reckon.

Colored text? Why not Smile
But not only in the Virtual Folders but anywhere in TLB.

Colored Text would be WOW at last. I have wished for that option since Win95. I know that a lot of other people have wanted it too.

It would be a great advantage to TLB.

Thank you Yuri - what a guy!!!
