PDF manual resurrected

Thanks to Hans, a crafty xplorer² user, the help file now comes with a table of contents so that it is more like a book and better organized.

Re: v6

for #6 the embedded media player already has a "mute" button, so you can use that!

Re: v6

Hi Guy and thanks for your feedback many of the things you ask for are already in xplorer2: 1) instead of the quickfilter box which is indeed temporary, setup a permanent filter (eg wildcard) in a number of ways: www.zabkat.com/x2h_2b.htm#br_vf 3) use the miniscrap or the quick access list to add fo...

Re: How do I do...

you know that you can assign direct shortcuts to particular user commands, right? so you execute directly without menus

Re: How do I do...

i didn't realize you wanted to open the menu, i though you wanted the list of the commands in the DIALOG (Alt+U, U, More)
they are functionally the same, and at any rate that's the only one available as a macro

adding & in a command name isn't going to work as you've discovered :)

Re: How do I do...

the first one is easy, use the macro recorder and open the menu you want, and when you see the organize dialog click on FINISH
for more information see here www.zabkat.com/x2h_7a.htm#mak_record

about the second one, if I understand it, it's not possible to automate this kind of thing inside a dialog

Re: v6

There are some settings which (I think) affect every pane and every tab in the file pane. Sometimes I would prefer that I could have a different setting for different tabs, and that the tab would remember its setting. TOOLS > ADVANCED OPTIONS, search for "Each folder tab can have different vie...

Re: v6

File Locator Pro, because it is more powerful and selective than X2's search.... I have used Bulk Rename Utility because it too is much more powerful than X2's built-in renamer. so what do you find in these programs that xplorer2 cannot do? sometimes people are not aware that features exist in xplo...

Re: v6

I think we discussed "custom properties" before, right? The problem is that they wouldn't be fast-searchable. The generic comments property is for this purpose and it is indexed for many file types (=fast search) I saw that other FMs are embedding this Everything tool, I might consider abo...

I am thinking to tart up the dialogs using more icons, and spread out the controls for more space also redesign the options dialog using the declone settings control (searchable) nothing drastic for the main window; I will add a crumbs bar in place of the addressbar and likely a new message popup in...
