    Default Unloaded folder state

    It would be nice if the UI could be somehow amended to avoid the hidden state wherein commands targetting one side a re mysteriously unavailable e.g.

    because the folder is not loaded and this is not apparent from the display.

    Actually, it is apparent from the display. The fact that the load arrow on the right side is enabled (yellow) indicates that the folder on that side has not yet been loaded. If it had been loaded, the load arrow would be disabled (gray) as it is on the left side.

    That being said, I agree that something a little more eye-catching might be useful (such as reverting the text in the path combobox to gray if you remove focus from the combobox without loading the file.)

    I (one who uses mostly keyboard and who thereby has never used that arrow button!) stand corrected - thanks.

    Neat. Or perhaps something focus-unconditional, e.g. bold means loaded. (Though I accept that bold's displacement effect can annoy - certainly it does me on e.g. one line of a list, such as in a music librarian.)
