Hi Hartmut

I would leave the Alt-Sort as it is (keeping S for size).
Although sorting would be of good use, everything else showing "sizes" would need to show the chosen "Size type" (normal vs on-disk/compressed).
The Size column in File Window should display it, for every file, for example.
If we were able to see (work with) both sizes at the same time, then ZTree would have to display both columns in the File Window.
That would mean a lot more programming work, and probably would need a new configuration flag to show it or not.
If ZTree just "commuted" between these different sizes - and showing one of them at a time - all Size columns, field, filters, (etc) relating to size would react accordingly.
But, the chosen "size type": (size on disk / normal), should always be visible.
Only in Alt-I i would show both sizes at the same time.

So, regarding your comment... Alt-Sort by Size would still just work on Size as it is... but the "size" could be "On-Disk" OR "normal", depending on the current state of the "Size Type" chosen.
