** User defined buttons

You can define your own command buttons, userbuttons, by using the preferences
program. The command strings are built in diropus fashion by adding tags into
the command string.

These are the available tags:

{d}  - destination directory name
{f}  - first selected entry, with path
{F}  - all selected entries, with paths
{fu} - first selected entry, with path, no unselect
{Fu} - all selected entries, with paths, no unselect
{o}  - first selected entry, no path
{O}  - all selected entries, no paths
{ou} - first selected entry, no path, no unselect
{Ou} - all selected entries, no paths, no unselect
{Rd} - directory requester
{Rf} - file requester
{Ro} - font requester
{Rs} - string requester
{s}  - source directory name

Example:

Notepad {f}

When run this will open the first selected entry in notepad.
 
Note that the user buttons will not block the user from doing stupid things,
such as selecting devices and assigns in the root view and then execute a
button with the command "Notepad {F}". The Filer will happely execute the
request but you'll end up with a lot of notepad windows telling you that the
supplied path is invalid.

Also note that {d} and {s} only adds a trailing "/" if the character after }
is not a space.

Examples:
{d} myfile   -> ram:t myfile
{d}myfile    -> ram:t/myfile
{d}          -> ram:t
{d}myfile2   -> ram:myfile2
"{d}my file" -> "ram:t/my file"

There is also a set of internal commands that can be used in user buttons:

$CD [path]                - Changes current path to the specified one
$SPACE                    - Toggles keyboard navigation on/off
$SIZE                     - Check the size of the selected directories 
$EDIT                     - Call edit on the selected entries
$NEWFILE                  - Create a new file in current path
$UPDATE                   - Refresh the current view
$PREFS [UB/FT]            - Open preferences
$ALL                      - Select all
$NONE                     - Clear selection
$TOGGLE                   - Toggle selected items
$WORKBENCH [path]         - Open path or current path in workbench
$NEW [path]               - Open new filer
$CLONE                    - Clone current lister
$INNEW                    - Open selected entries in new lister
$REALICON [ON/OFF]        - Turn real icons on, off or toggle
$HIDEINFO [ON/OFF]        - Hide .info files
$ADDICON                  - Add icon to selected entries
$REMOVEICON               - Remove icon from selected entries
$DEFICONS [ON/OFF]        - Turn deficons on, off or toggle
$OS4DEPOT [ON/OFF/RECENT] - Turn on, off OS4Depot view or show recent files
$DOWNLOAD                 - Download selected item
$THUMBNAIL [MAKE/MAKEALL/DEL/DELALL/ON/OFF/FLUSH/AUTO/AUTO ON/AUTO OFF]
                          - Add thumbnail to selected or all in lister,
                            Delete thumbnails to selected or all in lister,
                            Turn on, off or toggle thumbnails,
                            Flush the thumbnail cache
                            Turn on, off or toggle auto generating
$THUMBER [KILL]           - Kill the Thumber background task

Note that the checkbox options are not used for the internal commands.

Examples:

$CD ram:t

This will set the current path in the filer to ram:t

$PREFS UB

Opens userbutton preferences

$WORKBENCH SYS:Prefs

This will open the workbench window for SYS:Prefs

** Override file types (OS 4.1 only)

It is possible to define what program should open a certain file type when you
doubleclick a file. Just open the "File Type" page and start adding new types.
You can also define what program should be used to 'edit' each file type.
When selecting "Edit" in the Filer menu the selected editor will be used for
each file type.

To check the type of a file select "Check file type" in the menu. To enable
the OS to recognise more file types, go to sys:prefs and start DefIcons.

File types that are not defined in the filer.filetypes file will be opened/
edited in the usual manner.

** Configurable toolbar

It is possible to configure the toolbar in the preferences program.
Simply click ">" to add new buttons and "<" to removed a button.
Use the "Separator" to create a small empty space between buttons.

** FilerCX

FilerCX is a commodity that lets you start new filer windows by
double clicking the workbench background. The commodity is configured
by setting a few tool types on its icon.

Example:

COMMAND=dh1:filer/filer
HOME=dh1:filer
TYPE=lmb

Both COMMAND and HOME must be set. COMMAND points to the filer executable
and HOME points to the path where the binary is located. If you have the
prefs program in a separate directory that is not in sys:prefs then set
HOME to its directory.

TYPE can be set to lmb, mmb or rmb depending on which mouse button you want
to use.

(OS 4.0) Also make sure that DONOWAIT is set in case you put FilerCX in
WBStartup.

** Drag&Drop

The Filer implements its own method for Drag&Drop. You can Drag&Drop between
filers as well as to/from workbench folders. It is also possible to Drag&Drop
into other applications that listens to Filer drops.

Note that when dropping on a workbench folder or device icon then the drop
will end up in the folder that that icon points to. This works for left out
icons as well. Dragging onto the workbench backdrop, appicons or left out
file icons have no effect.

The default Drag&Drop method is to Move files. Hold left Shift when
dropping to Copy files.

It's possible to imitate the same behaviour as the Workbench by activating
it in the Preferences. This mode means that files are always copies except
when you drag it on the same device, then they are moved instead. 

It is possible for other applications to listen to Filer drop events.
Contact OpenAmiga.org for more information.

** Thumbnails

The Filer can display thumbnails for any file that your datatypes can render
as an image. To view thumbnails, show thumbnails must be activated and you
must generate some thumbnails using userbuttons or the thumbnail menu
commands. Thumbnails are stored in a thumbnail folder defined in prefs.
It is not possible to display thumbnails without using a thumbnail folder.

Thumbnails can be generated automatically by activating the
"Generate automatically" option in prefs.

** OS4Depot mode (Experimental)

It is possible to browse OS4Depot directly from the filer.

Current features include:

 - View recent files
 - Browse file tree
 - Search
 - Download and open files locally
 - Shows which files that are outdated
 - Shows which files that aren't stored locally

Requirements:

 - Internet access. The real OS4Depot site is accessed in real time.

 - "wget" must be installed and the executable must be in the current system
   path. It will NOT work without wget.

 - A work folder must be created. Example: dh1:OS4Depot
   Note that all downloaded files will be stored here and the file system
   will be filled with the same structure as the online site.

 - An assign "OS4Depot:" must be set that points to the work folder. Just
   add "assign OS4Depot: dh1:OS4Depot" at the end of your user startup file
   and reboot before starting Filer again.

 - One or more userbuttons must be added that uses the $OS4DEPOT internal
   command see "User defined buttons" section for more information.

** Extras

Some extra functionality:

 - CTRL + Left double-click on a folder,device or assign will open a new
   lister in the clicked path.

 - Left ALT + Left double-click on a folder,device or assign will open a
   workbench icon window in the clicked path, provided that the device it
   points to is not hidden from view on the workbench.

 - If you find the source/destination button confusing you can reverse it
   by marking the "Reverse source/dest button" option in prefs.

 - If you want diropus style item selection then activate it by marking
   "Persistent select" in prefs.

 - Press an alphanumeric key and the first file starting with that character
   will be selected [a-z], [A-Z] , [0-9]. Press again for the next file etc.

 - Hold down left shift when clicking on Copy to/Move to and you'll be asked
   to enter a new name for each entry

 - Hold down left shift when clicking on Pattern and the matching entries will
   add to the currently selected entries.

 - Press SPACE to enter/leave keyboard navigation mode

    The normal keyboard shortcuts will be replaced with these:

    Home        select first item
    End         select last item
    Enter       open selected item
    Up          select previous item
    Down        select next item
    Left        go back in navigation history
    Right       go forward in navigation history
    Shift+Left  scroll view to the left
    Shift+Right scroll view to the right
    Page up     select item 10 positions up
    Page down   select 1tem 10 positions below

 - Extra keyboard shortcuts

    Delete      delete selected items
    Insert      create new file
    /           go to parent folder
    *           go to root view
    Up          scroll up
    Down        scroll down
    Left        scroll left
    Right       scroll right
    Home        scroll to top
    End         scroll to bottom
    Page up     scroll up one page
    Page down   scroll down one page
    F2          rename selected entries

** Tips & Trix

 The Filer application is a standalone executable. If you want to add a
 keyboard shortcut to open new listers then start "fkey" and add a new hotkey
 for the Filer executable.

 If you don't want the images/ directory in the same drawer as the executable
 then just copy all files inside images/ to an appropriate TBImages: assign

 You can set up the workbench to enable you to open a Filer lister pointing
 to the path of the currently active workbench directory window.

 (OS4.0) Copy SYS:Utilities/Commodities/ContextMenus to SYS:WBStartup/
 (OS4.1) Make sure ContextMenus are active in WbStartup prefs

 Open ENVARC:ContextMenus.cfg in a text editor and add this line before the
 line that starts with "Directory,New drawer":

 Directory,Open Filer,CLI,DH1:Filer/Filer %d

 (Replace the path with the path to the Filer executable in your system)

 To open a Filer from a workbench directory window, right click its background
 and select "Open Filer"

 Open by right clicking a drawer:
 Drawer,Open Filer,CLI,DH1:Filer/Filer %d

 Open by right clicking workbench backdrop:
 Workbench,Open Filer,CLI,DH1:Filer/Filer %d

 Hidden options:

  Key                           Type    Description            (Default value)
  ----------------------------- ------- --------------------------------------
  Filer.notify.dos.only         Bool    DOS only FS notifications       (TRUE)
  Filer.icons.load.per.interval Integer Icons to load per interation       (4)
  Filer.icons.refresh.interval  Integer Icons to load before refresh      (20)
  Filer.os4depot.workdir        String  Work dir assign            (OS4Depot:)
  Filer.os4depot.host           String  Host url         (http://os4depot.net)

 To set a hidden option:
   Start SYS:Utilities/PrefsObjectsEditor
   Open env:filer.prefs
   Add a new child on root level using the data above (key/type)
   Save

 If you want to set it permanently, open envarc:filer.prefs or
 copy env:filer.prefs to envarc:

** Troubleshooting

 - Filer keeps telling me that 'Thumber' could not be started.

   The Filer application needs to be able to start the Thumber program if you
   have activated the automatic thumbnail function. If you have started Filer
   in such a way that progdir: points to the wrong directory, such as starting
   it from context menus, then Filer won't find the Thumber executable.

   There's two ways to solve this:

   OS4.1, Start Filer from its own directory. Make sure automatic thumbnails is
          active and open a folder. The Thumber will now start and APPDIR: will
          have an entry for it. The Filer will now always find Thumber.

   OS4.0/OS4.1, Copy the Thumber executable to SYS:Utilities
          Filer always checks SYS:Utilities if it can find Thumber there.

   An alternative solution is to create a script that starts the Filer by first
   setting the current directory to the correct one. And then let context menus
   start the script instead of the Filer executable. 

 - The Filer complains that that it can't open preferences.

   If you have started Filer in such a way that progdir: points to the wrong
   directory, such as starting it from context menus, then Filer won't find the
   FilerPrefs executable.

   There's two ways to solve this:

   OS4.1, Start Filer from its own directory. Open Preferences.
          FilerPrefs will now start and the Filer will now always find it.

   OS4.0/OS4.1, Copy the FilerPrefs executable to SYS:Prefs
          Filer always checks SYS:Prefs if it can find FilerPrefs there.

   An alternative solution is to create a script that starts the Filer by first
   setting the current directory to the correct one. And then let context menus
   start the script instead of the filer executable.

 - The source/destination button is confusing!

   Check preferences. You can reverse its meaning.

 - The Filer window opens up at the top left corner even if I have selected
   unsnapshot!

   You probably have "Allow window position snapshot" activated in prefs.

 - The file under the mouse pointer is deselected when I want to start d&d!

   This is part of the standard listbrowser behavior and is not something
   that the Filer can control. If you want this changed you need to contact
   Hyperion.

 - The Filer doesn't do this or that!

   Check preferences. There's a lot of settings and there's a big chance that
   you can make it do what you're missing. If not then you're welcome to make
   a feature request. Just don't nag about it, the todo list is huge and some
   things have priority over others.
