[Wish] a few Functional Display Enhancements   [Wish]

Suggestions for three (3) functional display enhancements for ZTreeWin:

1) - A new Command to highlight the active Search string, in each place that it appears in the file names, listed in File View -- including in Branch, Showall, or Global views.

.. This feature will be used for rapidly scrolling through lists of files, to save time by spotlighting "files of interest" -- without the disadvantages of employing a filter instead (or changing the existing filter), that would lose the "useful context" of those files that a filter would "hide" -- such as 'related' files that have a similar dates & times, but don't contain the Search- or Filter- string in their names.

.. ( This "Search-string highlight" command could temporarily switch the file-view display to use "mono-colored file-names", similar to the Alt-F6 display, and the Megaview display, if that is necessary or helpful.)


2) - A new 'Duplicate Same-Size' file display command, to highlight 'adjacent', Same-sized files, listed in File View.

.. This "optional" feature will be used when scrolling through long lists of files, to save time by rapidly locating "possibly duplicate" files.

.. This optional command will be available, and function "only" while the File View list is "Sorted by Size" -- including in Branch, Showall, or Global views.

.. This command will be used to 'spotlight' same-sized files, that have different names -- without doing any digital 'hash' comparisons.

.. ( This "Same-sized files highlight" command could temporarily switch the file-view display to use "mono-colored file-names", similar to the Alt-F6 display, and the Megaview display, if that is necessary or helpful.)


3) - A new Command -- or instead, an always-active function -- in Megaview (Ctrl-F7) to highlight the active Search string (if one currently exists), in each place (if any) that the Search string appears in the list of "lines" that comprise Megaview's information display.

.. Highlighting the Search string in Megaview should make the view more useful and time-saving, in many cases.
