I would like that undo and delete are treated separate, the undo option would be for copy/move/rename and a separate delete/bin function that relates to just that. undo history and delete history.
Mechanically the developer did just start treating them separately, as different functions which are differentiated by different labels in the undo list, but I can dig the tweak you are suggesting which, to add more detail, is to have separate menu options (for items that are selected), one each for Recycle Bin and Undo, where invoking either only shows the items within that group. That would be a nice addition if it's not too much extra work.
What I was suggesting about the undo history would be to remove individual things from the history list, eg I have done a bunch of file renames and copying, from the undo history I may want to the copying records but want to keep the rename, the way undo history works at the moment is you can delete the whole history or keep the whole history, would be good to pick and choose what bits of the undo history gets kept
Ahh, thanks for explaining, as I initially thought you were suggesting still more settings within the menu. I like the idea of individual removal from Undo as well, and it might not be that difficult to implement. Since we can already long press an item to display it for possible recovery, maybe then in that panel there could be a "remove from undo" button. It might also be possible to bring those buttons (Restore and Remove from Undo) into the main undo list but that might be a bigger bit work
"if it could be done I would want undo and delete to be separate things in the menu with different settings for each."
LOL, Had that statement been in the previous post I might have merely said + 1 above .
