CEA: Whitespace Double Click

Post by jupe » 26 Mar 2020 19:22

I think it could be extremely useful if you exposed the whitespace double click action to scripting.

PS: As a related query (which I could solve myself if the above request was granted) I find it inconvenient that when you are viewing a file as a paperfolder and you dbl click to go up (or go up via other methods), it goes to "This PC" instead of the IMO more convenient, parent of the currently loaded paperfolder text file.
Is that something that you would consider changing, or could it be implemented, ie. with how the mechanics of paper: folders work, would it be feasible, and not have downsides I haven't foreseen?.

+ 1 for this one. The more actions we can customize via CEA scripts the better. White space clicking is very convenient for customized actions on selected file(s) or menus. Millzey recently requested the same for middle click here viewtopic.php?f=5&t=21512 So many more mice nowadays are capable of middle click, if not they can do with software like X-Mouse Button Control.

If implemented, I am not sure it would work while maintaining a selection though, at least it doesn't currently. Middle click would be ideal for that situation though and I agree would be great to have too/instead, both can have their different use cases.

Yes, you're right jupe, double click wouldn't work to initiate script action on a selected file since the filename(s) would be un-selected, but you could still use it for other actions like menus. As you said, middle click maintains the selection though.
