Configuring double-click action

Description

Double-clicking a file always transfers the file, where, if I'm not mistaken, in FZ 2.x the behavior was configurable to either:

1) Do nothing
2) Transfer the file
3) Open/view the file
4) Add file to queue

This would help those users that are so used to double-clicking a file to open/edit (like myself) and prevent accidental up/downloads.

I would hope that this feature would be re-implemented so that we can configure local and remote behavior separately. For instance, double-click on local does nothing, where double-click on remote opens/views the file.

*My FZ version: 3.0.0*

i would like to vote for re-implementation of this feature. this is the biggest thing i miss from filezilla 2 :(

comment:2 by danez, 13 years ago

Also would like to see that feature again.

comment:3 by bdobby, 13 years ago

I wish to add my vote. I've gone back to FZ 2 because of the lack of this feature.

I add my vote for the File doubleclick action. It is highly missed in FZ 3.0. I use it many times for quick editing of online webfiles. It saves a lot of time.

I too *sorely* miss this feature in version 3.

I can't tell you how many times I've doubleclicked a file for editing just to have to turn around and cancel it from being transferred. Old habits are hard to break; especially since I also work on others' machines and their ftp programs are set to edit on the doubleclick.

Frankly, not having the option anymore is giving me click-aggravation. I find right-clicking then selecting "edit" during a particularly intense editing session more than a little irritating. Plus, to retain that opportunity to cancel when I do muss up and doubleclick, I now also have to keep the "overwrite" dialog enabled at all times -- just more unnecessary clicks during times when I don't really need a confirmation popping up every time.

For me, "throwing" a file to transfer it (drag'n drop) is as handy as doubleclicking it, but there is no handy alternative to doubleclick-editing.

I'm not complaining, I really do love this program. I'd just love it a whole lot more if that option were back. ;)

Thanks.

Crikey, sorry for double posting; that was not intentional.

Hello,

FileZilla fits well what I was looking for, but
I like to have the future when I doppelclick on the client site that my
favorit editor (i.e. Textpad) will open every file.

Do anybody thing it will be quick posible to make this?

(just open the correspondending MS-Windows program is no help, because a
lot of files, i.e. in /etc, have no extensions)

Thank You!
Harald

Does adding a comment count as a vote for this feature? If so, please add mine.

I too am going back to version 2 because this functionality isn't in version 3.

Supposedly it was slated to be in the final release of Fz3?: http://trac.filezilla-project.org/ticket/1206 (see comments).

I vote too for the return of this feature.

One more vote for this feature! And, by the comments here, I'd add a request that the *default* setting for this option be "View/Edit" rather than "Download".

-dave (an FTP Voyager refugee who also can't seem to kick the double-click-to-edit habit (and who also wonders where they transfer to when i double-click 'em (my Local Site pain (which I don't use) just lists drives (so where am I transferring them too? (and how deeply might I nest these parens??)))))
