Folder navigation - need to scroll to the top each time

#1 Post by Alex777 » 2013-08-01 05:00

The problem appeared since the last update.

When I return to a local folder that has a lot of files by clicking ".." or by clicking the folder's name in the tree, the folder's scroll position is always in the middle instead of returning to the top like it was before the update. See image. I jump a lot between folders and need to scroll to the top every time. Please fix this, otherwise I'll simply have to switch to another FTP client.

Navigating to a parent directory jumps to the subdirectory in the list you came from. This was a change requested by users.

This is a pointless and counter-intuitive change, that makes the interface less friendly. When a user navigates to any folder, he needs to see the folder's first files at the top. This is how it worked for decades in every possible operating system.

In Explorer, if I go up a level via the backspace key, the very same thing happens.

Why do things have to change for the worse after they've been working without problems...

Try "Toggle synchronized browsing" button at the top right in the toolbar. This kept the view at the top but only for the local folders which is useful for my workflow.

Can I raise this again, please?

It is a complete pain to have to manually scroll to the top of the listing every time I navigate.
Enabling synchronisation is not always appropriate.

I appreciate the change was made at users requests, but could there be an option to switch it back?

I always have my folder arranged with most recently modified at the top. If i change folders, that's where I want to be again.
