Default Search Q?

This happens in the 5.x Beta I just downloaded and the previous 4.x versions. I actually came to report it on the 4.x but saw 5.x and decided to try that first.

So if I have a directory listing like this:

Team
Tell
The A
The B

Normally, I hit "T" it'll take me to the first listing with T or in this case "Team", if I keep typing Tell, it'll go to "Tell". Now when I type "The B", it'll wind up highlighting the folder "The A" instead of going onto "The B".

Shouldn't it know that when I'm trying out a directory name to keep going and then if I really meant to highlight the directory it should be when its stopped searching for the directory names?

Are you referring to the fact that the "The A" folder font style becomes bold in the process of trying to search?

Type "tell" and "Tell" is selected, if you pause a brief moment and then type "The B" it selects "The B" as intended but the "The A" entry is now also shown with a bold font face.

Team
Tell <- selected after typing "tell"
The A <- becomes bold after pressing the spacebar
The B <- selected after typing "the b"

Is this what you're experiencing so that I know we're both on the same page?

The space-bar is used to toggle items to/from the marked list feature.

In this case the effect is undesired and I can see how if you're typing out a filename with a space it shouldn't trigger the toggle but I am not sure if this can be programmatically detected to selectively filter out the toggle during the search.

Yes, "The A" folder is bolded (toggled) as you indicated and then it "finds" the next folder starting with a B.

So it leaves the wrong folder highlighted and it selects the wrong file for me.

I have a number of folders with spaces in the name as putting dashes or dots or anything else always looks funny to me.

I'm not sure what the right answer (behavior) should be.

I found a way to prevent space from triggering a marked list toggle, please try this updated build.

Just unzip the flashfxp.exe into your FlashFXP v5 program folder.

Download ffxp5.0.0.3762b2.zip

Looks like its working for me. I'll play with it some more. Will this be in the next beta build/update?

Will the special version that I have auto-update correctly or do I need to watch and do it manually?
