Description:   Opened: 2015-03-20 16:41
I love the new quickMove/quickJump feature, with one caveat.  I have many mail
folders with the same name path suffix, e.g., Mail/admin/president and
Mail/ZZ_Last_Year/admin/president.  Both show in the quickJump Name Box as
admin>> president, so there's no way for me to tell which is which.

Suggestion:  When duplicate leaf names show up, find the rightmost name on the
path for which they differ.  If it's not the immediate parent, then use ... to
elide the missing path components.  For my example above, I'd like to see

Go to QuickFolders Options, General Tab

Right-click the [x] quickMove button setting

increase the setting

according to your needs.

I'm affected by the same issue. While changing
extensions.quickfolders.premium.findFolder.maxPathItems is a functional
workaround, the suggestion about using "..." and the rightmost name of the path
would be really helpful (IMHO).

Axel's suggestion works well for me.  The ability to elide intermediate nodes
in long path names might also be useful as an additional option for how to
present the path, but not in place of what has already been implemented.

Created an attachment (id=8027) [details]

Added a user interface (on the QF Pro tab under premium features) for
configuring the type and folder depth:

0 Folder name
1 Folder name - Mail Account
2 Account - Folder Path
3 Folder Path
4 Folder URI (mainly for debugging)

Also a Maximum Path depth number to restrict the number of parent folders that
may be displayed.

Special case: if a QuickFolders Tab is shown, I only show its name. Some
questions follow from this:

# Should the Tab category/categories be listed along with it?
# Should any parent folders or account be listed for QF Tabs? I think the
answer to this one is 'no' as QF Tabs should have unique names anyway and this
info is overkill and complicates the feature.
# do the results need icons? (like on the recent folders tab)

Other useful options might be: subfolder popups (might be performance
problematic) and a parent folder link
