Improvements in Thunar

Hi there,

I'm pretty new in XFCE world and always using GNOME until GNOME-Shell arrived smile

I want to know if I can configure Thunar to have a behabior simmilar to Nautilus:

- How can I center the name of the files and folders when it has more than one line? Actually is left aligned.
- How can I increase the size of the thumbnails?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Improvements in Thunar

Hi Monkiki,

Thank you for reporting this here.

I am, new to the community here and will try to answer you to the best of my knowledge.

I have not seen a setting to explicitly do what you ask for. However, I found the setting to place the text on the side of icons in the icon view to be much efficient in terms of screen real estate.

Please let us know if this is satisfactory.

You can zoom-in (ctrl +) and zoom-out (ctrl -)

Ok, but I only want the previews a bit bigger, no all the documents and folder icons.

Re: Improvements in Thunar

Nick has just pushed a change for centering the file names in the icon view. It will appear in a new version of Thunar, along with quite a few of other improvements.

As for thumbnail/icon sizes - AFAIK you can only change them all at once. Personally, I'm in favor of the existing solution - changing size of thumbnails only would result in a mess on the screen.

Re: Improvements in Thunar

glad to see this enhancement because left aligned filenames are ugly (from my point of view).
