Re: blog: backup or transfer your settings

I guess the plain menus is supposed to be like basic/advanced settings in other programs. It seems that it is checked by default in fresh installs so it tends to catch new users (maybe to protect them?) or the occasional veteran cleaning house. I have pointed it out a few times and I think nikos poi...

Re: blog: all about layouts

as nikos mentioned, you can use /S:<layout name> to load x2 with one of the alternate layouts just edit whatever shortcut you use to start x2 and add the /S option I do not remember the reason I started using an alternate layout (rather than the default) as my main layout but I have been doing that ...

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

I'm just too used to the menu in x2. I did play with the ribbon some back when nikos added it to x2 but got tired of having to look for commands that I use often. I don't hate the ribbon in Windows/File Explorer when I use it on other PCs.

Re: beta version 450.14

there is a setting (in the settings editor, global section, more options) that tells x2 to use the default browser rather than IE

there was a thread about this awhile ago because some browsers did not like the link that x2 sends

Re: beta version 450.15

where in the reg to you need to create the DPF_TABINSERTNEXT value? OK, so DPF_TABINSERTNEXT is not an actual value it is one of those bin values registry.txt shows DPF_TABINSERTNEXT as part of binDualPaneFlags so I adjusted binDualPaneFlags in ZabaraKatranemia Plc\xplorer2_UC\MainFrame Settings fro...

Re: mouse clicks accumulate

I have the sticky command in the main toolbar on most of my layouts, that way you get a visual indicator that it is on and I do turn it on on purpose from time to time. It seems there should be an indicator (similar to the filter one) on the status bar at the bottom of the x2 window for sticky mode....

Re: anybody using descript.ION files?

I don't believe so unless of course the regular filename is 8.3 short. This link from JPSoft via Wayback Machine explains the format of descript.ion files. This description mechanism was created by JPSoft (I think) before Windows NT and Windows 95 introduced longer filenames to Microsoft OSs. But th...

Re: anybody using descript.ION files?

I use descrip.ion files for a few files and I did notice when I was playing with the details panel last year that it was reading the descriptions as comments. What other stuff is x2 doing with descrip.ion files? I do not think it is carrying the info when copying/moving/renaming files. I usually use...

I think this post should be moved to the General forum. It has nothing to do with x2.

Re: RegEx Rename fail in 4.3

It shows however that the "Quoted Characters" works on "Matching-Mode/Input" and not for changing the Output chars ($1,$2,$+) The main purpose is :: metacharacters can be handled like the common characters i.e. \Q(a+b)*3\E :: matches "(a+b)*3". and without quoting :: \(a\+b\)\*3 :: Without \Q...\E,...

Re: RegEx Rename fail in 4.3

Unfortunately case conversion is still a problem. filename = camelCaseToSnakeCase.txt regexp = (.+?)([A-Z]) replace with = $1_\L$2\E expected result = camel_case_to_snake_case.txt result = camel__LC_Ease__LT_Eo__LS_Enake__LC_Ease.txt I'm following the instructions here: <http://www.regexlab.com/en/...

Re: new beta version 4407

I have the user command list set up to break columns at 25 lines and I have grouped user commands so that it is much easier and quicker to find them in the list than in the organize dialog. But consider this a very low level request because having the properties command from the toolbar buttons pret...
