I think this behavior is not obvious. I have a very big problem - not enough space for all buttons Would like to add at least two: New File and New Folder.

OK, what about this one: leafpad button can load leafpad app with this folder as "current directory".

I can make this, but 2 problems:

1) I don't know how i can create new file in leafpad )))
2) leafpad save config to " ../settings/leafpad/leafpadrc" from current directory

QUESTION...

I am really really really going to have to refactor that menu system anyway for the lower devices.

There is no way to navigate "off the top" of the tree-view using just the 5-way controller.. and even if there was a way... the SELECTED item would always be the top one...

What about making a single-click event cause a - JUMP to the top menu...

or

even better remove the top menu and replace it with a pop-up menu (wrapped in a "GtkScrollView") this would allow for MANY more option/items... and it would work an all devices. this would also preserve the SELECTED ITEM in all cases...

Thoughts on that?

for the current layout: one-click of FW-center to choose a file/folder and double click of FW-center to open a folder

to keep it simple... I would have OPEN as the top option in all cases... Greyed out if there was no default "opener" (including folders)

I could handle the extra clicks.

double click might be "challenging" to comprehend for some.

but I see your point... possibly there is an argument for a proper "branch" or even Fork...
however it would be nice to detect the Touchscreen capabilities and simply offer that extra "drill-down into folders without pressing open" on those devices.

will think about the double click thing... it's a decent idea.

Removing top menu on touch devices is very bad idea, becouse it's very useful.
Adding context menu for long tap is good idea

Solutions:
1) Make branch, remove menu on non-touch devices (via separated layout)
2) Navigate to menu on click

Showing menu on every folder opening is not so good. Screen redrawing is slow.
May be Kindle has some menu button?

(all for non touch devices)

agreed.. will index your thing today then if you are happy with it...

List as Touch / Paperwhite for now? or Paperwhite only?

(will give your latest 1.5 a workout now - on a touch)
