10.6: Changes in column view mode with Select All
Authored by: Flavum on Nov 01, '09 08:51:06AM
Personally, I don't care for this new feature at all. Here's why -

I use column view as my default, at it's the easiest way for me to navigate amongst files and folders. As an example, I keep several folders on my Desktop for organizing files until they can be archived or stored elsewhere. When I double-click one of these folders, it's because I want to directly access what's contained within it. I shouldn't have to click a second time to confirm that decision. The fact that I can't use command-A to select the contents immediately after opening a folder seems very unMac-like to me. Imagine if this was the case with icon view, or list view - people would go bananas.

I don't understand what advantage this new behavior offers. Why the hollow arrow? It's as if a folder is sort of selected, but not really. Nope - not liking this at all.
