  1. Code Editor

    Include a code editor into Solid Explorer.

    This would feature:
    - Syntax highlighting
    - Line numbers
    - Find & Replace (Including Regex)
    - Code block highlighting
    - Monospaced Font
    - Undo/Redo
    - Automatic Indentation

    Ideally, this would automatically be used for supported extensions such as .js, .java, .html, .css, .sh, etc.

      • 7zip files with LZMA2 compression method does not extract in Solid

        7zip files with LZMA2 compression method created in desktop does not extract in Solid.

        LZMA2 is the default 7zip compression method for Fastest/Normal to Ultra compression level and it's supported by other file explorer apps.

        Please include support for 7zip LZMA2 compression method.

        • SD card analyst

          It would be great of SD card analyst is implemented. Problem with sorting files as size is that when you click on a folder, it again sorts according to names. So It properly analyse filed we need to sort again and again according to their Size. It fells very dumb. So a separate feature for analysing SD would be great.

          • Bring Back "Open Beside" Option

            Back in the good ol' Solid Explorer Classic users were able to long press a folder and was given an "Open Beside" option. It allowed us rotation-locked, portrait users to quickly transfer a file from one folder to any other folder with relative ease. With the new Solid Explorer we have to swap panels, navigate to the folder, swap back, then finally move the file. Please bring this option back.

            • Classic unlocker Android TV

              Hello,

              First let me start by saying thank you for supporting the Android TV platform! I know I, as well as many others were eagerly waiting when the app would be compatible!

              I was curious if the Classic Unlocker, will be available in the future to unlock the full version of the Android TV app as well?

              Thank you for your time,

                • SD card write permissions

                  is there a way you could implement sd card permissions like fx file explorer where you enable write permissions and revoke them if you like.
                  whatever is used in those file managers looks lot cleaner.i don't much about technical stuff so if you find this unnecessary please ignore this,

                  • Mega expired in new accounts

                    I think Mega changed API, so new accounts (created after a certain day) cannot connect.

                    The message "Expired" appears.

                    • Solid explorer

                      Samsung S5 / Android 6.0.1

                      After start of Solid Explorer comes a clear screen and APP crashes. Clearing of data and cache in APP manager brings no improvement.
                      Please advise.

                      • Modified date incorrect and files locked

                        The simple task of renaming a file located on my Windows 10 pc using my Windows 10 pc changes the modified date to the time of the rename as it displayed in Solid Explorer. Other file explorers show the proper original date modified (not the date the file was renamed). The date remains if I rename using solid explorer itself to do the rename.
                        I also noticed that around when this started happening, if I opened a video stored on my pc through solid exolorer (launching mx player or vlc) that even if I closed the video or played another…

                        • Icon on files which has an app set as default to open with

                          Similar to how it works on Windows PCs. For example (see sceenshot)
                          - for .png files I've choosen to use QuickPic as default: icon appears in thumb corner
                          - for .Skedio files I've choosen Skedio app as default: Skedio icon appears inside circle

                            • ability to have more than 2 panels

                              I remember you told that you are against tabs, because they take too much space. So why not make it possible to have more panels? And would be useful if you add right-swipe menu (like left one but for opened panels)

                              • Xiaomi MI A1 running Oreo displaying 0B file sizes

                                Updated my Xiaomi MI A1 to the latest Oreo updates (January security updates) recently and I realized that all files copied over to the SD card are displaying 0 B file sizes.

                                However, although the size is 0 B, the files are actually working fine because I can actually open the copied zip file as well as viewing the pictures from the gallery. Can NeatBtyes please look into it?

                                Thanks!

                                  • Continuously play audio files?

                                    Apologies if this has been asked, or if i am just missing something, but is/can there be a way to play audio files continuously, without manually selecting the next track? As of right now, I have to pull my phone out of my pocket every time a song ends, and select the next one. This is my ONLY "problem". Love Solid Explorer!

                                      • Recycle Bin

                                        A recycle bin (option) should be added (similar to the one in ES File Explorer.) This will help prevent accidental deletion or allow recovery of recycled files.

                                        • Cache folder taking excessive space

                                          The folder created by Solid Explorer on /Android/Data/pl.solidexplorer2 is taking excessive memory (about 700 MB) for cache purpose.
                                          Either the app should minimize this cache or delete it on exit, because 700 MB is useless for me now.
