Btw. regarding our discussion of spatial vs open in same window. Would
it make sense to have an option to
open a new window and close the current for paths below a certain depth
and open in same window for deeper nested folders? So we could combine
the spatial mode for shallow paths with the hybrid mode that is indeed
better suited for deep structures. The length of the path could be
decided like in the pathbar. So you get e.g. 4 levels below / and four
levels below your home dir in spatial mode.
The problem with that is its inconsistent for new users (and probably
all users who dont know about that feature). We shouldn't dynamically
change mouse actions/behaviour based on folder depth - it should be up
to the user by using left or middle clicks to determine how to navigate
in any given situation.
Such a feature should of course not be set as default.
I would set the options to open a new window with left click. I would
then set the middle click to open the new window and close the oold.
This far this is the current standard. If I want to use open in same
window for deep nested paths I have no mouse button left.
Any idea how I can use both? I think the right mouse button is out of
question and combining with Ctrl or some other key is probably too
