File/Folder selector


Through the selector you can browse your storage space and select files to be loaded or saved.
It helps you organising your documents better, thus keeping them safer.
Files are documents you can open, modify and save.
At the end of their name, a few characters provide their type. They are called the extension
Files are stored in folders.
A folder can contain other folders, and so on. This builds a tree.
At any time you are viewing a precise position in the tree: it's the current path.

The selector contains three major areas as well as some smaller, additional ones
From left to right we have:
  • the shortcut list
  • the list of files and folder stores in the current path
  • A preview of the selected file in the file list

Can also be found:
  • current path display
  • up one level
  • history browsing
  • search field
  • name input
  • filters on file types


Area: shortcut list

From the shortcut list you quickly access special locations in your storage space
It is displayed as a name or icon list.
Display settings can be changed from the upper button.
You can move in the list through the scroll bar and change its size with the handle.

It is divided in four sections, each section can be opened or closed.

  • Bookmarks: you can add items in this section by drag & drop of folders or files, from the shortcut list or the file list
    To delete an item, drag it outside the box.
    To erase the whole section, right-click its title.

  • Recent: it's the list of the last used locations.
    To erase this section, right-click its title.

  • Locations:  it's a list of predefined locations in your storage space: Desktop, Documents, Settings, etc. Display settings can be changed from the upper button.

  • Disks: it's the list of storage units, removable or not, currently available. If the unit is removable, an icon enables to eject/unmount it.

Area: files and folders list

This is the most important section: it shows the file and folder that are present in the current path
They can be displayed as icons or list. This can be selected from the upper button. Items can be sorted by date, size, name, etc. in ascending or descending order.
Clicking an item selects int and displays its preview in a dedicated area.
Clicking a column title changes the sorting , a second click changes the sorting order.
A long click on a column title enables to move the column.

By right-clicking an item, you can :
  • change its name: you then enter the new name of the file or folder
  • duplicate it: a copy will be made in the same folder
  • move to trash bin: the file is not definitively erased, it will be when you empty the trash bin
  • show in system: the item is shown in the standard window of your system file browser
  • add to shortcuts: the item is added to the list on the left. If it is a folder, it will be opened, if it is a file, the current path will be changed and the file shown in the selector list
  • detailed view: a full-screen preview is shown (see the subchapter about this topic)
