[SOLVED] How to get a second column in Nemo?

Post by InChrist » Thu May 10, 2018 10:40 am

I found out incidentally that after a keyboard shortcut I cannot remember a secound column opened up so I could easily have two besides, copy and paste ... would be great to know this shortcut again. I also do not find it the option for a second column in the menu of Nemo.

Once Nemo is opened, press F3 to get an extra pane.

I am afraid I don't know of any one particular website. One just have to try with some appropriate search words to see what it comes up. Since you asked for online sources I got curious. I tried with "nemo file manager user manual" and found this: http://www.ubuntubuzz.com/2015/10/basi ... nager.html which actually contains the info about how to get an extra pane in Nemo.

If you use dual pane view extensively there is an option in nemo preferences under the behaviours tab to always open it in dual pane view.

If you are not aware of Evernote, an electronic 'in the cloud' notebook, you should investigate it.
I have extensive notes on Linux, I preface each note with the Main idea,

e.g.
Linux Nemo Tips
Linux Terminal Commands
Linux Grub

when I see something in these forums that will help me in future, it goes into Evernote.

https://www.evernote.com/
The neatest thing about Evernote is, if you enter it once, it Syncs everything at once.

You are allowed to have two apps installed on PCs or Cellphones. ( free of charge )
I have one app on a cellphone, and one app on a Desktop PC.
but, the online version accessed by a browser is far faster.

Hint: Evernote do not sign out, just close the tab, next time you open it up, it comes back to the same Topic.

Logoff: and it will display in Preference Order.

Hi InChrist,

I just read your post and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

FYI: Most file managers are able to use "tabs", right click and open a new tab also provides a second, or third, or fourth column, etc... so to speak, although not visible at the same time like "extra pane" or "split view", you can simply click another tab select files and or folders and select a function like copy, then click another tab, and paste.

FYI 2: Some file managers can have multiple split views (panels) open at the same time as well as tabs in each one either vertically or horizontally.

NICE!!! Thank you for that! It's funny how I have gone without some of these conveniences for so long. Thank you for sharing the knowledge!

HI InChrist, mr.travo,

I just read your posts and the good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

In addition to "evernote", there is also the superb and free "CherryTree" notes application for storing notes with pics and links, webpages, links to files, etc... I have my CherryTree database file synced with my cloud provider(s) so that I have it available from anywhere.

cherrytree – giuspen - installation instructions in the link for newer versions over the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM).
https://www.giuspen.com/cherrytree/

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:giuspen/ppa

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

Code: Select all

sudo apt install cherrytree
Hope this helps ...
