Hi, I was trying out your great program but I have folders with a lot of files in and I cannot see how to sort them a-z, making it impossible to find anything. Is there a way to do this, or can you recommend a good alternative program with this feature? Thanks.

Currently, there are no sort routines in file manager. I've had several requests for this recently, so I'll be looking into it. No ETA, sorry.

Hi, your excellent program is almost unusable on Linux KDE X11 with HiDPI scaling. At 250% scaling everything is massive. I don't understand why this is the case as Qt5 usually handles scaling well automatically. I also have export PLASMA_USE_QT_SCALING=1 enabled if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the report. The link above has a section on QT that may help. Unfortunately, I don't have hardware to test this issue.

I can work around this by launching using the command:
QT_SCALE_FACTOR=0.4 ./adbLink2

( since I am using 2.5x scaling, 0.4 is 1/2.5 )

Perhaps built with Qt4; or adbLink is unnecessarily applying a scale factor, and then Qt is scaling automatically in addition to this?

Thanks! that replacement scales well. All scaling works as it should. Even scrollbars are scaled properly (which they weren't with my workaround above)
I am having the same problem. I recently switched to KDE Plasma. Is that test binary available or maybe the next update could fix this.

Thanks brocnical for the workaround which isn't ideal but is workable.

I have used this app for years on several different platforms and this is the only time I have had an issue.

Thank you jocala for all your hard work!
