    Is it so hard to add OneDrive for business support? Many file managers already has this feature :)
    FX file manager users similar web authorisation API, but it can login to my account. Maybe you just need some editing of your config?

    • 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.

              • Can not connect to WebDAV (HTTPS) with self signed certificate

                Got the message 'there was a problem with ssl communication', I know it is not safe with self signed certificate, but it will be good to add an option of ignoring the risk.

                  • Folderless gallery view option

                    In "Collections\Photos" or in any folder, with "View option = Gallery" and "folder options \ show folders groups" we saw subfolders of current folder too, instead of viewing all files in all subfolders in one list, grouped by sort option.
                    Maybe, You can add option "Folderless view" to show all files in current folder and it's subfolders, ignoring this hierarchy.
                    Somewhat like in Apple OS X Photo - all files stored in subfolders, but you can scroll one pretty big list of all photos with group dividers.

                    • 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.

                        • A review of and solution to empty folder issue

                          As I understand, it was optional to show folder size in SE but enabling it was slowing down folder listing significantly [1.1]. So, instead of computing size of folders, SE adopted a smart approach of looking in Android's file database, MediaStore [1.2]. Some users demanded to see the number of items in a folder next to folder size and this was also implemented [1.3].

                          Currently, Solid Explorer can display total count and size of files contained in a folder including all subdirectories unlike other apps. However, accuracy of this information depends on Android’s media…

                          • 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,

                            • 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)

                              • Needs support to view RAW Picture Files

                                Hi,
                                Can't view DNG file captured by the camera. Would also like support to view TIF/TIFF format files. When you choose "Open the file using..." option and choose Image, file that are image but don't have extension are also not viewable. HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) for photos; HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) for videos which Apple Inc. introduce is also coming to Android P. It will be nice if you implemented the support for SE. Talking about videos I'd like to view videos within the App.

                                • Poor quality of image viewer

                                  The inbuilt image viewer is very poor quality, at least for JPEGs.
                                  See attached screenshots which shows the same file viewed in SE Image Viewer and Android's built in gallery (one's zoomed in slightly more than the other - but the same problem appears at all zoom levels, even 1:1).
                                  In SE Image Viewer the image looks like it has been saved with much higher compression than it has.

                                  • More option for batch renaming with numbers

                                    Altough we can batch renaming the file with # option, but we can't decide where to start with...easily.
                                    For example, start with 2 and step 3,
                                    00.jpg→2.jpg
                                    01.jpg→5.jpg
                                    02.jpg→8.jpg
                                    At least, I hope we can chose to start with "0" or "1", then I don't have to create a dummy file for the "0" in that sequence.

                                      • WebP format support for Image Viewer

                                        SE can even give thumbnail to webp pictures but se image viewer can't open them.(not found in open with). Other apps can't access to remote devices so it's annoying when i'm watching many pictures.

                                        • Add "Computers" on Google Drive

                                          Google Drive had update, it's can choose any folders on computer to sync (Which is not just the "Google Drive" folder again).

                                          And on the Google Drive web, it add "Computers" shortcut on right menu.

                                          So, it should add the "Computers" selection on Solid Explorer, similar the "Shared with me" selection.
