Thumbnail view: Distance to thumbnails

Post by hcm »

Alpha 1.5 has the (new?) feature to display the filename in multiple lines in the thumbnail view, which makes a lot of sense. The too small distance to the thumbnails is less nice. Can this be changed?
Also, I've noticed that the text in menu and status bar at default size 8 seems slightly larger than in ver. 1.4.

Everything will default to square thumbnails.

To set Everything 1.5 to use landscape (16:9) thumbnails:
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /thumbnail_aspect_ratio_mul=16
    Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
    If successful, thumbnail_aspect_ratio_mul=16 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
    ---
    Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /thumbnail_aspect_ratio_div=9
    Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
    If successful, thumbnail_aspect_ratio_div=9 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.

Also, I've noticed that the text in menu and status bar at default size 8 seems slightly larger than in ver. 1.4.
Menubar height in Everything 1.4 is controlled by the system.
Menubar height in Everything 1.5 is font-height + 8 logical pixels.

Statusbar height in Everything 1.4 is font-height + 4 logical pixels.
Statusbar height in Everything 1.5 is font-height + 8 logical pixels.



To customize the menubar height in Everything 1.5:
  • Set a custom font or custom color to use the Everything menubar (instead of the system menubar)
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /menu_high=20
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, menu_high=20 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
  • where 20 is the menu bar height in device pixels.


To customize the statusbar height in Everything 1.5:
  • Set a custom font or custom color to use the Everything menubar (instead of the system menubar)
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /statusbar_high=20
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, statusbar_high=20 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
  • where 20 is the statusbar height in device pixels.

Thanks for the solution. However, the aspect ratio does not change the distance between image and text. The thumbnails are always displayed flush at the bottom, i.e. exactly above the text.
Apart from that: Have a Merry Christmas!

I have put on my TODO list to add some options to customize the text padding for thumbnails.

Thank you for the suggestion.

Merry Christmas!

Everything 1.5.0.1333a makes some changes to thumbnails.

Selection performance should be greatly improved in this version.

Thumbnails will have different heights now based on how many lines of text in the filename.



added a thumbnail_text_padding_top ini setting to control the padding at the top of the thumbnail text.

To set the text top padding:
  • Copy and paste the following into your Everything search box:
    /thumbnail_text_padding_top=4
  • Press ENTER in your Everything search box.
  • If successful, thumbnail_text_padding_top=4 is shown in the status bar for a few seconds.
  • where 4 is the logical number of pixels to offset the text after the thumbnail image.
  • The default is 0.
