Custom icon associations
You can customize the icon associations directly in the user settings.
*.[extension] pattern you can define custom file icon associations. For example you could define an icon for
*.sample and every file that ends with
.sample will have the defined icon. Use
**.[extension] with two asterisks to apply the file association also for the filenames ending with that file extension.
If there's no leading
* it will be automatically configured as filename and not as file extension.
The following configuration can customize the folder icons. It is also possible to overwrite existing associations and create nice combinations. For example you could change the folder theme to "classic" and define icons only for the folder names you like.
