Description Panagiotis Papadopoulos 2009-02-11 22:18:35 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.2.0)
Installed from:    Unspecified Linux

If you have 3 columns opened and then decide to enable or disable the tooltips in the settings, dolphin will "lose" the first two columns.

I hope you understand what I mean

Comment 1 Panagiotis Papadopoulos 2009-10-02 23:54:37 UTC
still valid on a recent kde from trunk
Comment 2 Dario Andres 2009-10-23 02:00:47 UTC
I can confirm this behavior here using:

Qt: 4.6.0 (Qt git branch 4.6 commit 52aef13521af2137db15ee878893f5c5150471e5
        Date:   Mon Oct 12 14:18:51 2009 +1000)
KDE: 4.3.72 (KDE 4.3.72 (KDE 4.4 >= 20091015))
kdelibs svn rev. 1038788 / kdebase svn rev. 1038788
on ArchLinux i686 - Kernel

When updating the settings the last expanded folder in the Column view is set as the "main one", and therefore the "column history" (showing the parents folders) are lost/closed.

Tooltips are not the only setting that affects the Columns view, I could confirm this with other general settings.

Confirmed on current trunk (KDE 4.6 dev cycle) although with a different result.
Here are my steps to reproduce this.

1. Change view to column view
2. open a few folders so you have a few columns open
3. now go to the dolphin settings and enable tooltips

Now your thrown back into "Detail view" mode with the column that had focus.
I can't imagine that this is intended ^_-

Fixes problem reported here. 

This patch also fixes one more problem semi related to this bug: after applying settings sometimes view mode would reset to directory default(if active directory would have such).
