Regex code to capitalize filenames (after 4301)

Now that xplorer2 version 4301 is out, I again ask... I give up. I’ve read the official documentation and started reading a few websites and regex just confuses me. I see the \u and \l and I think they can be used to capitalize file names. Could someone just write the code to capitalize filenames fo...

Alternative printer toner cartidge makers

I have a Brother HL 2280 DW laser printer and the toner cartridges (TN-450) cost a fortune ($50+). When I search for them online I find other compatible toner cartridges that are much, much cheaper. If they were only a little cheaper I would stick with Brother, but they are sometimes half as much. A...

Re: Regex code to capitalize filenames

I actually read that and I thought it only had to do with Camel Case which I thought would be more complex. That post is where I started to get the hope I could do simple case changing, but I'll look forward to the update. I'll probably still not understand regex though.

Regex code to capitalize filenames

I give up. I’ve read the official documentation and started reading a few websites and regex just confuses me. I see the \u and \l and I think they can be used to capitalize file names. Could someone just write the code to capitalize filenames for me because that is all I want to do with regex.

Do you still update your RSS feed?

Your RSS feed does not seem to be updating. One way I access it won't load and another just shows the "summer upgrade offer."

Re: xplorer2 v4207 beta

Can regexp handle capitalization changes? About half the time this is why I want to rename a file.

I created my first hard link and have a few questions

It’s only taken me over ten years using xplorer² to summon the courage to create my first hard link. I was motivated by the desire leave a file where I originally created it, but to also have in a different folder that gets backed up more often. After extensive Internet research I’m still confused a...

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...

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....
