Re: You should add a link to your website to your Youtube videos

I was thinking more about the lost of revenue when someone might casually look at one of the videos and wonder how much and where to go to buy it. The example I gave was and actual ad for x2 and had no easy link to the zabbat.com. I think you would want to make impulse inquiries which might lead to ...

You should add a link to your website to your Youtube videos

I was looking at some of your howto videos on Youtube and I came across one titled "xplorer2 introduction and free trial[" that stuck out to me because there was a comment underneath asking "where the bleep is the link?" There isn't a link in the video comment and if you watch the video at the end t...

Make macro beep on error and continue

I figured out ERRORSTOP 0 makes a macro not hang up on an error. Is there a way to make a macro exit AND beep to let me know the error has happened? I have the following macro that just swaps the panes in two pane view. ERRORSTOP 0 command 32869 This replaces a Menuhack command I no longer need, tha...

Re: searchFromFolder not being used by shortcut

try putting the opening quote before the /L "/L:bla" Thank you that works. I played around with the format for several minutes and wonder how I would have know to try this. I now wonder if there is (or could be) a startup switch that starts the Find file dialog clean with Addition Rules cleared and...

searchFromFolder not being used by shortcut

"C:\Program Files\zabkat\xplorer2\xplorer2_64.exe" /F:1 /L:"C:\Users\Paul Schroeter\Documents\Microsoft Word Documents" I can’t figure out why this shortcut Target starts an xplorer² scrap pane with “Find files” like I want, but won’t remember “searchFromFolder”. I usually have xplorer² already runn...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

https://gregmaxey.com/word_tip_pages/ribbon_custom_icons.html According to this article it can be done with a custom RibbonXML, but there is no way I will ever figure out how to do it . A few years ago I figured out how to add some commands to the text right-click menu with some template, but I did...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

Also the next day I discovered a shortcut with, "C:\Program Files\zabkat\xplorer2\xplorer2_64.exe" /F:1 /L:"C:\Users\Paul Schroeter\Documents\Microsoft Word Documents" which opens a scrap pane and search set to my Word documents folder is an excellent replacement for the Word Find File that disappea...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

happy birthday! sorry I don't have anything of a solution for a birthday present. I saw this post in the old forum too The solution was so simple I feel like a dolt for not thinking of it YEARS ago. I just wrote (well, asked someone) to write a macro that showed the Open dialog in the right folder....

Re: xplorer² macros

the idea is that by running you make sure that what you save does what is intended of it. How is that a hassle? It's a bit of a hassle because for years and years I've created macros in Word 2013 (Autohotkey, Quickkeys (Mac)) I've developed the habit of saving my work in progress. You are saying yo...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

I misunderstood then. I thought that the search you were using was from within the Office applications, when looking to open previously saved documents. Thank you. Not to beat a dead horse, I am looking for documents from inside Word 2013. I don't use that awful Backstage tab Word wants us to use t...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

One thing you could do is to follow this article: https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/set-a-default-working-folder-786200a7-f5f2-4d26-a3ae-b78c60dd5d3b Sorry it took me so long to reply. This doesn't effect the Search feature, only save and open. I'm convince the file search in the legacy Open...

Re: blog: what is this ultimate edition anyway?

I just tried to upgrade from Professional to Ultimate basically for the heck of it and told me my license was over a year old. I have a lifetime license so I'm slightly confused. "Unfortunately your professional key is more than a year old, so you cannot upgrade at a discount. If you need the ultima...

Is there a way to translate old bookmarks so they work with the new forum? I played around with the URL for a while but never could get it to work. BTW, usually just searching for the end of a bookmark URL or title refound what I wanted. I also suggest you put a ZabKat favicon somewhere so my new bo...

Re: xplorer2 v4.2 FINAL released

I would mention I spent a few minutes looking for the new Find similar under Tools, before I realized it ONLY shows up in a scrap pain. I don’t understand why it can’t work in the current folder. Since you seem to be adding photo tools I want to suggest again I would really like something like the n...
