Re: build 5001 released

do you have a "proper" program registered for emails, or is it through your internet browser?
anyway, the automatic attachment only works for clients like outlook and the like

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

I don't know, you tell me what size large icons are good for your 4K monitor to be, and then I may add that size to the skin package

the ribbon probably has its own icon scheme based on system icon sizes, that's 16/32 for regular DPI (probably!)

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

I think the "small" skin must be 16 pixels, fixed. The big one _XL can be any size you like

ps. small icon size is constrained to system small icon size, so if you have normal DPI that will be 16, otherwise it can be bigger. This is used for menus so it cannot be huge

Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

to clarify, the small icon skin is called x2skin.png and the big one x2skin_XL.png if you install xplorer2 fresh, it picks the 48x48 skin for "large" and renames it appropriately if you manually interfere, you must stick to the above names and make sure both bitmaps/icon strips have the same number ...

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

you can make fonts in xplorer2 bigger using various tricks explained here

also a fresh install will pick up better DPI settings, but of course you'd lose all your customizations

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

are you talking about the standalone VLC getting restricted like that? That would be very strange if you tweaked xplorer2 shortcut icon properties for compatibility, try to undo them and see if there's any change. Or even better, save your settings, do a fresh and complete reinstall (factory setting...

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

xplorer2 should show fine on 4k screens, if freshly installed or if you use the recommended tweaks some people have problems when they use a 4k monitor together with a regular monitor, which is an area I have no statistics nor the capability to fix. But then you can use compatibility fixes and let w...

Re: Letters & Numbers Bar

for example create a macro with this content (CUSTOMIZE > MACROS > EDIT MACRO)

Code: Select all

getfocus
sendkey M
then save it as "letter M" and add it to a toolbar. You will find all these steps explained here
www.zabkat.com/blog/menuhack-customize-toolbar.htm

likewise you can create any number of key buttons.

Re: Letters & Numbers Bar

even this, do you want to see 36 letter buttons on a toolbar?
my recommendation is to write a macro to send a letter to the active view and assign it on a toolbar button. You'd need 36 of these, see the manual for more information for SENDKEY command

Re: Dropbox and color tag

this is by design to minimize eye strain :)
there is an advanced option "filename color coding applied even on inactive views", not sure if it will work for the tree?
