    The heading should explain it all - I'm on Vista32, and both Windows Explorer and xplorer2 (from zabkat) show the version control icons, but I don't see them in TC.

    Thanks!

    You know, Steve, you keep saying this, but that doesn't make it true. Maybe you should just fix your system, so you can see subject lines. Or possibly just ignore any questions that refer back to the subject. You don't, after all, reply to every other question you don't have an answer for with "I don't know."

    To answer your question, zabkat ("Can Take Command show TortoiseSvn folder icons?"), the TC list view is not an embedded explorer window or standard windows dialog I believe, so can't show the TSVN icons. At least, I don't see them. Nor do I see TCVS overlays.

    It is netiquette.


    I'd love to, but my mail client, Outlook Express, does not like to be
    modified.

    Re: Can Take Command show TortoiseSvn folder icons?

    In the JPSoft groups only, I make a point of ensuring that the subject
    line, while accurate and informational, is not used as part of the
    message body because Steve has frequently said that those lines are
    unreadable and hence make the email difficult to understand as-is.

    In every other group and personal email, I do not necessarily follow
    that. In my opinion, and it seems that of a great number of people who
    email me directly and participate in groups, the subject line can be
    used to convey a significant part of the message.

    Steve: On your behalf, I try very hard to remember to keep the
    entirety of my message in the body. Each time I see your posts,
    however, I feel I'm witnessing a lecture instead of seeing a request
    for assistance. I only speak for my own feelings, but if you were to
    say "I have difficulty reading the subject lines; would you please
    include the substance of your message in the body" instead of "the
    subject is NOT part of the message" I would feel much better about
    seeing those messages. As it stands, each time I see your posts I feel
    my hackles rise but even so continue to change my default behavior. I
    know that in email there is no body language or nuance that is
    conveyed and I could just be misreading everything you intend. It does
    not change the fact that I do interpret it that way; no matter how it
    was intended.

    So why not change it?

    You can do so with a rightclick on the desktop, Properties - select the
    next to last Tab (Darstellung on my german menu), select button Extended
    (I think), select Symbol from the Elements dropdown list, and select a
    font and size that suits you.

    Under Vista the procedure is essentially the same, but you have to open
    the Properties for classic look (or something similar) first.

    And yes, it affects the icon text too.

    GIYF.

    HTH.

    ... and that's why I never did it - I have way too many icons on the desktop
    to fit them without most icon text's being cut short. One of the many
    shortcomings of trying to make everything uniform.

    Steve,


    I love a clean desktop. I am still using MS Office XP's sidebar, which
    you can configure to hold more icons than your desktop, and the icon
    text is shown as a tooltip. You probably know your icons by position
    better than by their text (which is too small to read for you anyway, as
    you said).

    But each to his own hell :-)

    If you don't have access to that programm, I could send you the
    necessary 4 small files.

    Best Regards,

    * Klaus Meinhard *

    That might work.

    | You probably know your icons by position

    | anyway, as you said).

    Actually, I know their order: sorted by their label, but their absolute
    position changes according to the current screen resolution. The most
    important ones have hotkeys (cntl-alt-key), making them easier to start
    without even knowing their location.

    Strangely, the desktop font for icon labels is actually bigger than the
    message subject display in Outlook Express - making the labels easier to
    read, but the icons are often enough by themselves. Furthermore, the labels
    are stable, they change once every few months. Cf. message headers, which
    are unique to each message, and thus must be legible to make sense. Other
    negative effects: The header display is smallest when the message is
    displayed for reading, and it has the worst contrast (black on gray); it is
    slightly larger and has better contrast, black on white, in both the message
    list pane (esp. if the message is marked as "unread", so it is in bold font)
    and in the reply (message composition) display. So it is worst when it is
    needed the most. That's probably one of the reasons netiquette does not
    consider the subject line as part of the message, and why I keep complaining
    that I need to do a lot of extra things to read it. Please also consider the
    people with worse eyesight than mine, who need to use readers.

    JAWS, the screen reader I use, has no problem dealing with headers in
    Outlook Express messages. When I start reading a message, JAWS
    automatically reads the From: and Subject: lines before reading the message
    text. It also has special keystrokes for reading the From:, Date:, To:,
    cc:, and Subject: headers at any time.
