  2. Add an option to have Editor in "open with" dialog for text files

    I would like to have Editor in the list of apps when I open text files.
    There is only Viewer available.
    Another option could be implementing the requested feature "Direct switch from text viewer to editor". Then we would be able to open in Viewer and to switch later to Editor.

  3. add a feature to view all running apps on one page and Force Stop them quickly.

    Ghost Commander has the best Force Stop feature of any app! Please add a screen that lists all running apps and has a "Force Stop" button beside each app, so that it's easy to scroll through and kill apps running in the background. Right now you have to go to apps/<specific app>/manage/"force stop" for each app in order to close it.

  4. Support custom commands

    Git Annex is a file synchronisation tool.

    It has a mode where it doesn't sync file content, but only metadata for tracked files.

    That metadata shows up as a dangling symlink for each file.

    I would like to select symlink(s) in ghost commander and run a custom command that takes the symlink name as a parameter and causes git annex to download (or delete) the file.

  6. Able to delete files from SD card (ES can do it why not you)

    Able to move and delete files from/to SD card. ES File Explorer can now do it without being rooted. Any reason why you can't implement it? I really like GC, but every time I have to do something on the SD card I have to use ES.

  7. add support for One Drive and Amazon drive.

    Current dropbox, box and gdrive access is great. Adding these two would simply coordinating between them all!

  9. Sort and rename favorites

    1. Able to rename favorites and hide path. Along with other various 'ugly' bookmarked locations like ftp, this new SAF method in Marshmallow displays favorites in a not very friendly manner.

    2. Able to sort favs by name, and not path.

    3. Also have a setting to sort favs differently that the global method so your default sort method for files and folders can be by date while sorting favorites by name by default.

  10. forget passwords

    Sftp on GC rocks. But can I set it so it does not remember my passphrase? So I have to type it everytime? Seems more secure.

  11. Allow relative paths in Copy and Move dialogs consistenly

    To prevent mistakes
    ./relative/path/to/[...] (note the necessary dot) could perhaps be required instead of
    relative/path/to/[...].

    ../relative/path/to/[...] (ancestor paths) should be supported too.

    At the moment (1.53.4) strang things happen with relative paths:

    Typing a path without any '/':
    1. one can copy a file to a non-existing file (even from the Move popup!)
    2. one can copy directories *into* existing directories (alas even from the Move popup!)
    3. one can copy directories to non-existing directories (alas even from the Move popup!)

    Using relative paths with at least one '/' seems to do absolutely nothing in all other cases I could…

  14. Changeable position and color of filename in Picture Viewer

    1. Let users decide to show filename or not; and users could switch the option quickly. Because the filename sometimes interferes the pictures.

    2. Users could choose the positions of filename: top/bottom, left/center/right.

    3. Users could change the color of filename.

  15. Make it possible to add custom command buttons on toolbar

    As much as I love the menu, the button toolbar is where it's at in terms of efficiency.

    Since we can already use busybox commands and so many buttons are based on these commands anyway, it would be great to be able to create buttons for the for commands we use most, for example to create a button to access the external SD Card, or modify the behaviour of existing commands, like maintain write privileges to the system folder (Remount /system) instead of having to reactivate it every time the app is restarted.

  20. Stable SSH key authentication

    While a "proper ssh server authentication" would be nice, there is a very simple change that would make SFTP plugin useful where it is not now.

    When connecting to a laptop the current approach with private key per host isn't really working, as the laptop's ip and hostname are different every time.

    That could be solved if the plugin would first try /sdcard/.GhostCommander/keys/<hostname>/keyfile and then - if the key file is not found - try a "global" key in the /sdcard/.GhostCommander/keys/keyfile
