Re: new beta version 4407

How does xplorer2 know of the beginning of words? To find the beginning of words, I think the user would need to provide some sort of delimiter (for example, whitespace, a period or a hyphen). The character after that delimter would be assumed to the beginning of a word and converted to uppercase. ...

Re: new beta version 4407

Both, actually. In xplorer2, if you go to Tools > Options > Window > Main font, the dialog that opens has a drop-down with 16 color presets for choosing the font color. I'm asking if this 16 color selector can be changed to the 40 preset/More colors picker that xplorer2 has everywhere else. Likewise...

Re: new beta version 4407

I considered capitalization but without regexp it was very hard to manage, I mean in terms of GUI. There are so many possibilities for capitalization that would require a monster interface! I understand, and thought this might be the case. :) Here's a request: Can we have a proper color selector at...

Re: new beta version 4407

Hi Nikos, I've been testing beta 4407 for a few days now, and everything seems to be working fine. The addition of UPPER- and lower-case presets to the Mass Renamer is most welcome! Is it possible to add a preset for Capitalization, as well? I remember the Deelx engine being a little arcane in that ...

Re: Mass rename question

Regex does support case conversions with the \U \L \F \I commands but these do not seem to be supported in the x2 regex. Yeah, this is standard Regex, and while these commands are implemented in the Deelx engine, they don't actually work. We tried to troubleshoot this last November, you can read ab...

Re: xplorer2 4309 beta

I'm using Brave, which is Chromium based and should render the same. To be sure, I also tested this in Google Chrome, which also mangles the URL and throws the file not found error. So why does it work for you, but not me? I suppose it could be something systemic, but I can't think what. Parsing the...

Re: xplorer2 4309 beta

there is an advanced option that disables IE as the default help engine, search for BROWSER in the advanced options dialog Well, who knew? :) Unfortunately, this does not quite work. The "How do I?" topics open correctly in the user's default browser. but trying to open the Quick Start Guide gives ...

Re: xplorer2 4309 beta

Beta's working fine here. I've taken the new features for a test drive and haven't been able to break anything. :) I can't reproduce the layout bug FrizzleFry mentions above. One thing that does need to change is having all the help linked to open in Internet Explorer. IE is legacy software now, jus...

Re: RegEx Rename fail in 4.3

can you try your regexp in this tool and see what it's supposed to do? http://www.regexlab.com/mtracer/ I get the same results in MTracer as I do in x2's Mass Renamer. MTracer shows that the regexp is correctly parsing the string, it's just the the \L, \U, \Q and \E tokens seem to have no effect as...

Re: RegEx Rename fail in 4.3

Thanks, version 4.3.0.1 fixes some of the regexp problems. filename = camelCaseToSnakeCase.txt regexp = (.+?)([A-Z]) replace with = $1_$2 expected result = camel_Case_To_Snake_Case.txt result = camel_Case_To_Snake_Case.txt Hurrah, no more "c_am_el_Ca_se_To_Sn_ak_eC_as_e.txt"!

Re: RegEx Rename fail in 4.3

Hi hajubu! Thanks for checking and confirming this! Hi Nikos! Thanks for the link to the syntax you're using. This page (http://www.regexlab.com/en/deelx/syntax/bas_esc.htm) suggests that characters can be upper- or lower-cased using quoted characters (beginning with \U or \L, and ending with \E). I...

RegEx Rename fail in 4.3

The arrival of RegEx for Mass Rename is most welcome, but alas! my first test out of the box was a fail. I tried renaming camelCase to snake_case, and vice versa. Here's what happened: filename = camelCaseToSnakeCase.txt regexp = (.+?)([A-Z]) replace with = $1_$2 expected result = camel_Case_To_Snak...

Hi Nikos, I tested the color tagging on a Samsung Galaxy A5 (running Marshmallow) and everything worked as it should, no problems.
