Description

Could you add those functions (as done in FAR):

  1. Scrolling the active file name with Alt+arrows if the name is too long to fit in the panel.
  1. Adjusting the size of the panels with Ctrl+arrows.

Alt+arrows usually used for switching between consoles into text console in Linux.

It varies between the terminal emulators. If Alt-arrows is taken then scrolling should be remappable to some other combinations, e.g Ctrl+Alt+arrows, or Alt+][. Ditto Ctrl+arrows.

ctrl-arrow is word left/right. alt-ctrl-arrow is even worse than alt-arrow, as alt-ctrl combos often have an association with window manager functions. alt-[] would be weird ... ctrl-[] would be more expected.

What about Ctrl-H and Ctrl-L (HJKL like in vim)? Alt-H is taken, but the rest seem free.

Ctrl-L is used to repaint the screen.

And C-h is backspace.

Ah, C-H and C-L, not C-h and C-l :)
