Re: Icon Overlay for Switched folders

Hi, Stefan

Thank you for response!

Well, an alternative would be to define some icon overlays as
optional. For instance: in my case, the non-versioned icon is not so
important; I’d give it up to have the icon for switched folders. Or
even, as I do not have another icon-overlay program in my computer, I
could have all of them active! ;)

Best regards,
