My main work machine is still having problems.
However, a lab PC and my home PC work fine.

There must be something specifically wrong with my one machine.
Thanks for the replies.

When I get back to work I'll check again.
I run a Hummingbird Exceed (X server) and it might be eating up Alt+Ctrl keyboard strokes, even though it doesn't have focus.

Thanks.

Tab Navigation Bug in 1.1.0.9x

The Ctrl-Alt-[Left | Right] shortcut to navigate between tabs does nothing.
This holds for 1.1.0.90 and 1.1.0.91.

Thanks.

Upgrade Cost of 1.2

The upgrade from 1.0 to 1.1 was gratis. Will the upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2 be likewise? I don't mind paying for another license (x2 is more than worth it), I just need to know how to budget for this next month.  :D (ps I noticed the message re: buying a license sooner rather than later on the update s...

Good news. I think I've found the problem. I did some more testing. Robust copying of ADS with files (even accross the network) works fine. However, what I've noticed is that any Alternate Data Stream associated with a folder (such as icons or comments) get lost when doing robust copy. It only shows...

I have x2 on my home PC (Win2k SP3) in addition to my work PC (XP SP1) (I really appreciate the way nikos made the license). I came home and tried the same thing and robust copy works great on my home computer! :D It will be a day before I get back to work and can try x2 in debug mode. I'll let you ...

Yes. It looses ADS info (like comments) when copying files even on the same NTFS partition. I first noticed this problem when backing up my shared network drive (NTFS) to my local NTFS-formatted drive. If I use regular explorer's copy facility, it just works. P.S. I'm using Win XP SP1 P.P.S. Moving ...

robust copy and Alternate Data Streams

x2's robust copy is neat, but anything stored in an Alternate Data Stream (ADS) on NTFS gets lost when copying. :cry: :crying:

Network Drive Navigation SOOO Much better

WOW!!! Whatevery you did since the 1.0.0.x, keep it up. My one _major_ frustration with xplorer2 was that navigating network shares (on first views, randomly afterwards) froze the program for 15-20 sec. In fairness, regular explorer exhibited similar problems, but they weren't quite as severe. 1.1.0...

xplorer2 in now truly Quadratic!

With tabs, x2 in now truly Quadratic! :D

Good work, Nikos.

P.S.
My only dislike of scrap frames is that they open a new window.
Could a future x2 have scrap frames launch in tabs instead?

PLEEEEEEEEESE!!!! don't get rid of F5 copy!

PLEEEEEEEEESE!!!! don't get rid of the F5 "copy" key and replace it with a silly "refresh" button.

x2 does a really good job of refreshing itself.

...besides...my fingers are now thoroughly trained and instructed in the zen of F5-copy. :D

...oh and nikos, some other things about x2 that just absolutely drives me nuts are these: 1. x2 doesn't wake me up in the morning 2. x2 doesn't brush my teeth (I have to do this myself) 3. x2 doesn't doesn't put my bagel in the toaster (this causes wasted steps) 4. x2 doesn't write my programs for ...

GREAT!
What are the registry keys to do this?
I couldn't find them in the registry or in registry.txt

Something reminds me that in an early version of x2 alpha, one could also specify a format string for the date. Is this gone? If so, could it return?

Thanks

I have both panes set to white now, but before I did, my eyes followed the inactive pane. Setting the active pane to a different color than white, would actually help me, but possibly confuse others. ...
