It ought to depend- ditto
Authored by: NeutronMonk on Mar 03, '04 07:32:05AM

Agreed. For example, when burrowing the hard drive, column view is best. When opening Applications, I like list view for the size, version, etc. columns. Folders of graphic images I have set to icon view, huge (128x128). I just wish the finder was more consistent with these settings. If I open the applications folder from the dock, it always remembers what I set it to (list). In this new finder window, if I click a graphics folder in the sidebar, it will open properly as (icon). If in this same finder window I click on my harddrive ( above the bar that separates the disks from the rest of the sidebar stuff), it will open properly in column view; however, now whatever I click on in the sidebar wants to open in column view, regardless of where I had it set. If you confine your clicking to the stuff below "the bar" in the sidebar, it will open as you set it.
My other big wish is for a method to see invisible files in only one view; i.e., the ability to see invisible files only when I'm browsing my HD in column view. Anybody know if this has been done?
