my review

Firstly i was a hardcore Total Commander user, can’t live without it. And after switch to MacOS i’ve searched for an alternative and i was very sad that all of the available file managers lack features that is must have for me, ugly or just acts weird. Than I found Commander Pro. This is the best alternative for TC.

Here are few possible enhancements imho:
- copy/move files: if one file is selected for copy/move the filename needs to be filled in the end of path input, so you can rename the file if you want
- file overwrite: for me this is the worst implementation. Why is the “keep both” the deafult? is anybody use this? imho the default is need to be cancel and need some shortcut or able to switch options with the cursors. Oh and the "apply to all" needs to be an option not a checkbox. For this the TC is the golden standard.
- the built in viewer need to open any unknow format in text mode, not in hex
- draging files need some enhancements. When i like to drag file it always keeps select files, and when i like to select files it drag one of them
- the calculate dir size feature need some process indicator that it is in the process. Check TC for example.

Keep going!

Thank you for your posted feedback. Please see our commentaries below:

1) There is an option copy and rename file at the same time. Just press F5, then put a slash in the path field and type the required file name after the slash. If you copy only one file and type a new name after the slash, the file will be renamed and will appear with the new name in the target pane.
2) In order to skip this "keep both", please go to System Preferences-> Keyboard-> Shortcuts and activate 'All Controls' option.
3) Commander One’s built-in file viewer is available via F3 and is designed for viewing files in different formats. You can choose between the following viewing modes:
4) Our developers will improve the drag and drop option in further update of the app.
5) I've passed this feedback to our developers to consider adding such an option.


Commander One Pro -FTP Client

I have been an avid fan of Total Commander for Windows for many years. When I purchased my MaBookPro, I was disappointed to find there were no dual-pane file managers available for the Mac like Total Commander. While getting a Total Commander update for my Windows computer, I read a thread re Mac users inquiring about a file manager for the Mac. The thread recommended Commander One Pro. I purchased it immediately and never looked back. The only thing I would like to see is "cloud" integration and a way to mark compare files and sync between the panes.

Thanks for being a loyal customer and writing this awesome review. I would like to inform you that Commander One does not have the integration with iCloud Drive due to the technical reasons. As of now, you can only access the local copies of the files in ~/Library/Mobile Documents. As for "Compare directories" and "Synchronize Directories", I have passed your suggestion to our developers for further consideration. Thank you for your time and cooperation.


Indispensable app for Mac.

I have used total commander on my pc for several years.
After moving to Mac, I tried out some apps to use the function of Total Commander, finally settled down to the Commander One, and I'm happy to use it.
Despite some limitations and minor glitches, I recommend this app those who want to replace or extend Mac Finder file management functionality.
