This bug has been there with all ftp-enabled versions, it is not new.
I find the easiest way to escape an unresolved ftp address is to go to "My Computer". Other folders are simply appended to the ftp address, as you have already explained.

Maybe if there was an "Always show tabs" option it would be consistent enough?

Thanks for the tabs, they're great. A method used for creating new tabs which I find very convenient is by double-clicking in the empty space next to a tab (examples are Opera browser and foobar player). Would it be possible to implement this in x2?

Seems like mothing but a nuisance to me You may think that was a typo. Well here is your Guide to Mothing Then it is more convenient (faster with less errors) to click in the column of interest than to to click carefully on the name(s), making sure you are in the intended row each time. That is som...

Hey thanks. I never understood what that "Full row selection" was about (not that I did much investigation..). I turned it off and now selection works excactly as I prefer.

What good is that option anyway? Seems like mothing but a nuisance to me. Am I missing out on something?

File selection

I'd prefer if I could make a crossing selection window (using mouse) from ANY column in x2. Currently, a crossing window can only be made starting from blank space in the "Name" column. This seems counterproductive to me. Situations where I have to use keyboard or resize columns to make a selection ...

Without understanding anything about programming, I think this is linked to using GDI+ rather than GDI: From msdn: About GDI+ Microsoft® Windows® GDI+ is the portion of the Windows XP operating system or Windows Server 2003 operating system that provides two-dimensional vector graphics, imaging, and...

I think the icons are probably .ico files, which is a separate image format supporting alpha transparency.

Another fine piece of graphics software: Sodipodi. It's an Adobe Illustrator-like application.

No, doesn't help. Something must be different the way the images in the preview pane and thumbs are displayed. Maybe the preview pane only supports images with RGB color? The dwg files themselves only have 256 colors, so I suppose the thumbnail module could be creating images with a limited number o...

It didn't make any difference for the preview. However I noticed when increasing the thumbnail size the previews are rather low res anyway (180px), so the need for the preview pane may be limited. I'll just toggle the thumbnail view instead.

Preview pane for dwg files

I have a custom dll installed on my system which allows an Autocad dwg (vector drawing) file to be displayed as a thumbnail when the x2 pane is in "Thumbnail" mode. This however seems to not be sufficient for the preview pane. It does attempt to display the preview, but it comes out a blank white fi...

i would have replied to that, if i understood what all these techniques are :) but anyway... Compare, for instance, the "up" and "back" button images in reglar windows explorer with the corresponding ones in x2. The win explorer button images look smoother, because the edge pixels are partially tra...

I think the button images themselves look great, it's just they should be in a format which supports alpha-blending with the background (like png).
