Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.5.80)
The new feature in 4.6 that the columns automatically adjust to the longest filename in the directory wastes a lot of space and makes the overview more unclear (IMHO). I'd prefer to have a fixed column width. I know it now is possible to manually adjust the column width but dolphin doesn't remember it and it is inconvenient to have to adjust it every time.
Can you please add an option to set a fixed column width?
OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.35-24-generic
Looks similar to bug 264434. Maybe it's duplicate (one way or another).
I'm not sure if Bug 264434 is a duplicate because for the column view it is a newly introduced feature (hooray :( ) since 4.6 and for the details view it's a problem that exists since 4.0. Nonetheless both are distracting... as automatic size changes are always in any way - IMHO.
And Bug 264434 is not about automatic columns with adjustment to the longest name but about a default size to which the columns are reverted. The problem here clearly lies in the permanent adjustment to the *longest name* - which makes it really hard to use.
