Eclipse 2024

Just returned from a 1000 mile drive, each way, to view the eclipse in northeast Texas. Clouds cleared off just in time to watch most of the eclipse and all four minutes of totality. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ViBXe9QFlqTyeW9KBS_DQTuuLplu2KvK/view?usp=sharing --------------- PJ [back] in FL

Re: checkboxes

An example of checkboxes that works as I expect it to is in the YAHOO mail application. Clicking a box toggles the checkbox. If I check boxes, then even if I view an email and return to the list, the boxes are still checked. A parallel would be if switching to an already opened panes or tab, then re...

And thus we are told, in a thousand words or so, "mind your own business".

Re: v6

Does "Sticky selection" not do what you want? Sticky selection loses previous selections if "click-to-select" is followed by "shift-click-to-select" to add a list of files between the last selection and the current selection. If you include ctrl key when clicking the s...

Re: blog: dark mode listview controls

is this affecting your xplorer2? i don't think so!? This "feeture" shows up in browsers, Office programs like Word, and other places that are not as user friendly as x2. Just wanted to voice my approval of x2's current handling of scroll bars, and let you know some are not impressed with ...

Re: v6

A few years back, during a discussion about click-and-drag, a suggestion to add checkboxes to a file list was made to use the boxes to simplify selection of multiple files and avoid the pitfalls of ctrl and ctrl-shift selections. I'd like to raise that suggestion again. Perhaps as a toolbar option o...

Re: blog: dark mode listview controls

During all the modifying of themes and such, I ask you to NOT implement one "feeture" that has popped up in recent versions of programs: - DISAPPEARING SCROLL BARS :shock: The Devil himself must have requested that function. I will "sacrifice" the small column of screen space on ...

Sort of Filter Folders based on DESKTOP.INI Icon

Nikos,

I often use Kilmatead's (May he rest in peace :( ) Folder Color add-on to add an icon for visual identification, etc.

Is there any way to sort or filter the folders based on the icon?

Re: Quick Filter Field String Shown on per Tab basis

OK, I see that works using alt-H.

Could communication be set up between alt-H filtering and quick filtering?

Re: Quick Filter Field String Shown on per Tab basis

Just tried Alt-H and didn't get that result.

I have a quick filter of ".s" applied to a tab, selected the tab, pressed Alt-H and the word "evolution" was in the Named field.

What did I do wrong?

Re: Quick Filter Field String Shown on per Tab basis

I can always duplicate a filter by selecting the filter string in the box (ctrl-a), selecting the tab to filter then pasting the string back into the box (ctrl-c). What's missing is the indication of the filter is applied. Regular filters don't provide that information either that I'm aware of, nor,...

Quick Filter Field String Shown on per Tab basis

A feature request: Can the string used to filter a tab be displayed for the currently active tab? I generally have a dozen or so tabs open at any time in two panes. I'll apply a filter to a tab, move to other tabs, possibly applying a quick filter to other tabs, usually a different string. It might ...

Nikos,

You might want to plagiarize this for one of your blogs!
