Download the latest TrackerV3 BETA version (v4.20.0052, 18-nov-2005).

Code: Select all

v4.20.0052 - 18.11.05 20:25
    + Menu View: added command "Last Size/Minimize Panel" (Alt+F12), 
      which does exactly what "Maximize/Minimize Panel" (Shift+F12) did 
      before: toggle between last dragged size and minimum size.
    * "Maximize/Minimize Panel" now does what it says: toggle between 
      maximum and minimum size.
    * Shift+F12 now really does what it originally only claimed to do: 
      "Maximize/Minimize Panel".
    * Toolbar: "Maximize Info Panel" now does what it says: toggle 
      between maximum and minimum size.
    * Now the dragged Info Panel size is stored independently of the 
      size achieved by other methods. This means "Last Size/Minimize 
      Panel" and "Maximize/Minimize Panel" work independently of each 
      other.
    ? Confused? Don't worry, I know what I'm doing... :)
    ! Fixed some control drawing glitches concerning info panel sizing.
    + Configuration, Color Filter: added option "Apply color filter".
      If you're not in the mood for color you can now easily switch back 
      to black & white, without deleting all your color settings.
      Note: if you're using colors now, you won't see them until you 
      check this new option.

Software: should we be aware because it's soft ? I like to think not !

No. Shift+F12 changes the info panel from minimum to the previous dragged position. Double-clicking the splitter between the info panel and the list changes the info panel from minimum to maximum. There was some discussion about it some time ago as to what was the preferred way of changing the info panel size.

This should also answer your question.

Pssssssst. Okay, I add Alt+F12 as a hidden and non-documented feature. Which means I can always take it away when I find a better use for it.

BTW, I didn't know that but I like that a right-click on the statusbar triggers the panel, but I'd like it better if this one was actually a shortcut for show/hide panel :D

Yeah, of course.
BTW; wouldn't be "Size Info Panel" a better term, since it does not necessarily maximize the panel but sizes it to the last user-defined size. Or what's better english? "Enlarge/Shrink..."? grow/shrink??...

    + Configuration, Color Filter list: now you can invoke rename by the 
      usual single-click on an already focused item.
    + Configuration, Color Filter: now you can state an unlimited number 
      of wildcard patterns separated by ";" (logically treated as OR).
      Further you can use the wildcard "#" for any single digit (0-9).
    * Toolbar: context menu now pops up also for disabled buttons.
    * Minimize/Maximize Info Panel: if Panel is currently hidden, this 
      command now acts like Show Panel.
