Very glad that my previous suggestions were considered.

This time too, another one.

I must admit that the initial window that PFrank offers is--how do I call it--inhibitory. At least to me that is, because it doesn't show the files I intend to work on. So what I do is go back to Explorer's window (a nag) to see how exactly my filenames are, and what changes I'd planned to make. Otherwise, it's Alt+D. What I'd like to have is a display of the files on the first window itself. Why take two steps when it could be accomplished with one? This, together with the unfriendly way of Browsing for the previous or next folder, makes the program user-unfriendly.

Proposed solution:
How about giving this requested display window the upper part of the main window? This way the first opening of PFrank will show us our files rightaway. If the programmer feels hard pressed for space, I'd suggest that the Summary display be made configurable/hotkey launched through the Options box, so that it may easily be dispensed with and brought back.

(Addn: Whenever I write a suggestion for PFrank I feel intimidated by its complexities, strikes me that these have already been incorporated in the program, and that my efforts are nothing but plain revelations of my ignorance.)

I've looked into adding an explorer type window.
WxPython (the GUI s/w for PFrank) has a directory-like controller available. It's similar to an Explorer window except it's very basic. you can't drag any names out of it and there are no navigation controls.
There's probably a way to add a true explorer window using the pywin32 libraries but I haven't had time to look into that yet.

Thanks for the suggestion.
I will put this request on the wish list.
