I tend to use the mouse most of the time. However from version 1.0 there is more support for those who prefer to navigate from the keyboard.
There are keyboard shortcuts for:
These shortcuts are configurable, though as usual not all key combinations will work; some will be grabbed by gtk or your desktop environment. Most don't have default settings, so choose your own.
- Navigating between adjacent panes e.g. from a dir-view to the corresponding file-view.
- Navigating to the opposite equivalent pane e.g. from a dir-view to the opposite dir-view.
- Navigating to and from the panes, the toolbar text field, and (if open) the terminal emulator and the command-line.
- Returning to the previous location (if it's still open).
- Cycling through the tabs (should multiple tabs be visible).
There are also the following ways of moving through a dir-view tree, which are set by the toolkit and can't be changed:
- The Up and Down arrows, as you'd expect, move up/down to the next visible directory.
- The Left arrow moves to the parent directory.
- The Right arrow unfolds the current directory if closed, and moves to the first child. If there isn't one, it moves down.
- '+' unfolds the selected branch.
- '-' folds the selected branch.
- '*' toggles the fold state of the selected branch and all its children.
