@basj I just downloaded Fences trial version and my first impression is that it's a terrific way of organizing desktop. It has also a lot of potential for creating workspaces on the desktop.
Fences appears to be the only tool with a "Details" view on folder contents. It would be very convenient to have this capability also on regular desktop fences, as in my work a lot of file names add "date-topic" before the interesting part of the file name.
While exploring the Folder Portal I immediately ran into having to set this view manually for each subfolder in it. This is really a pain. It would be really convenient if one could set a default view for a folder portal, both per fence and as general Fences setting for new fences.
I expect implementing this will be a minor effort and to be honest I am a bit shocked that an RSI preventing capability that is longed for by many for at least 2 years now has not made it to release already.
Small effort, great joy - aka, low hanging fruit!
Can you please see to this and similar requests?
