I've recently fresh installed
Ubuntu MATE 20.04 (previously used
Ubuntu MATE 16.04 ) and noticed the annoying feature of
Caja file manager (version
1.24.0 ). This feature appears in double-pane mode (with "Extra pane", after
F3 pressed) when the "Location bar" is enabled.
While both panes show the same directory, the width of panes are equals (see screenshot1).
Once you move into any folder the width of the active pane increases (see screenshot2) adjusting to the "Location bar" width.
Firstly, this is annoying, because the width "jumping" each time distracts very much. Secondary, if the path on the one pane becomes long enough (see screenshot3), the other pane becomes very narrow that is very uncomfortable.
I've checked that in
Ubuntu MATE 16.04 the width of the panes in
1.12.7 ) keeps constant when moving between folders.
Is it possible to configure
Caja to keep the width of the panes? Or should it be downgraded only?
