Size Format

Hello,

By default far displays the total free size (under the status line) and the sizes in the Quick View panel in bytes. Is it possible to display those in MB or GB instead? I have gone through the settings and searched the forum but found nothing.

Currently it is not possible.
But we already have similar wish at bugtracker: http://bugs.farmanager.com/view.php?id=2818

Thanks. The size in bytes like that is not very useful. It makes more sense to have them in MB or GB by default like Altap Salamander and Midnight Commander, etc...

It would be very nice if it is configurable similar to the size column in Panel Modes:

S[C,T,F,E] - file size
P[C,T,F,E] - allocation file size
G[C,T,F,E] - size of file streams
where: C - format file size;
T - use 1000 instead of 1024 as a divider;
F - show file sizes similar to Windows
Explorer (i.e. 999 bytes will be
displayed as 999 and 1000 bytes will
be displayed as 0.97 K);
E - economic mode, no space between file
size and suffix will be shown
(i.e. 0.97K);
