Option to disable taskbar animation

Hi,
I recently upgraded to 5.5 and noticed an animated icon/application title in the window taskbar when transferring. This is cool and the animation is nice but it can become annoying after a while. Minimizing to system tray helps but I don't want to minimize all the time to be able to monitor transfers.
I searched the options but couldn't find a way to disable the animation.

Thanks for reading and for making this great software! My apologies if this is already existing or planned :)
Dns.

Re: Option to disable taskbar animation

By animation, do you mean a progress bar behind the icon/label?

Re: Option to disable taskbar animation

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Well, I have 2 different animations:
-one is a progress bar behind the icon/label, updated with progress percentage so it's quite static and a very convenient feature.
-the other one is a more dynamic animation, like a "scanning" animation that repeats every 1 second. It's green too and goes from left to right.

The second one seems to appear only when I drag&drop a directory to download it's content and there is already a file downloading in the queue. The "scanning" animation seems to represent the directory/files list discovery, but it doesn't stop when the download starts.

Steps to reproduce:
-drag&drop a directory to download it's content (commander view, drag&drop from right directory view to left directory, everything default except "new & updated files only" ticked, limit to 4 concurrent transfers)
-watch scan animation
-watch progress bar animation when the download starts
-drag & drop another directory
-watch the scan animation
-the scan animation is still there when the 2nd download starts, and continue...

At the time I wrote the feature request I had only seen the scan animation, not the progress bar. It might be a bug linked to my configuration or windows settings.

Thanks

OK, The "scan" (indeterminate progress) animation should indeed be replaced by a normal progress animation, when the transfer starts. I'm not sure why it's happening. I cannot reproduce this. Would you mind recording a video? E.g. using <invalid hyperlink removed by admin> or similar service.
