Three questions about Far (menu, panel modes, red character at right bottom)

Post by KlepetoX » Sun 30 Oct, 2016 17:52

1st question - Is there any possibility to keep last used position in menus (user menu, plugin menu...) after menu is recalled?

2nd one - I can define new panel mode (Options - File panel modes) with using Insert key. Where and how can I use this mode then?

3rd one - I noticed a red character (don't know if A or R) in right bottom corner of Far window on key bar (similar as red R character during recording macros). I don't know how I invoked it. What does this character mean?

Thanks for advices...

The A on a red background means Administrator, i.e. elevated privileges (after you accepted elevation for some otherwise disallowed file operation).

Next time, please create a separate topic for each unrelated question.

2 - Ctrl+Enter in that menu.

Just to make it clear: it's for main menu only and will not work for the examples listed (user menu, plugin menu).

That's why I've mentioned macros, which should work for any menu.

OK, everything is solved and clear now. But user menu has no GUID... :-(
