"Get Info" on Mac

The "Get Info" dialog in Finder on Mac displays a file's properties:

Several people asked for this feature to be implemented in fman as well:

(By the way, this is a screenshot from fman's issue tracker. It now displays the number of votes for each issue. Everyone can vote on issues by leaving a 👍 on their description.)

The feature has just been released as part of fman 0.4.6: Simply press ⌘+I to open Finder's Get Info dialog for the selected files. This dialog is extremely powerful. The downside is that Finder needs to be brought to the front in order for you to see the window. It would be much nicer if this were not the case. But it's simply not possible. Some other file managers implement their own (less powerful) "Get Info" dialog for probably this reason. Maybe fman will do the same some day. Until then, you get a lot of power – at the hopefully not too large cost of an extra Cmd+Tab.

As always, any feedback you might have is highly appreciated. Just get in touch or share your thoughts / votes on the issue tracker :-)

Michael started fman in 2016, convinced that we deserve a better file manager. fman's launch in 2017 was a huge success. But despite full-time work, it only makes $350 per month. The goal for 2018 is to fix this.
