#623 Changing the layout doesn't update the active instance

I'm using PCManFM 1.0.1 and If I'm changing in the layout menu the visibility of tabs the PCManFM window must be reopened to take advantage from it. Is this really the correct behavior? I would expect that the changes are made instantly to the running instance.

    • labels: --> pcmanfm
    • milestone: --> 1.2

  • No, you don't have to reopen the window. The change is applied instantly but it doesn't add/remove tab label. The change will be visible on next tab adding or removal instead. Does it give you any inconveniences?

    I have no problem with it. I wanted just to go sure this is the correct behavior.

     
  • Thank you very much!
    Regarding to the ticket - would it resolve the issue if I add note into setting that the change will be used on next tab add/remove?

    I think this is not needed but I have no problem too if it will be added. Feel free to close this ticket if you think it is solved.

     
  • We hope this issue is completely fixed in the Git repository recently.
    Check it out when it's possible for you and if the bug still exists then reopen the report, please.
    Thank you very much.
