Re: blog: show JPG on map where it was taken

Hello Thank you Nikos for this little utility very interesting. I have a suggestion to improve this utility. Since it is not possible to save a trace in google maps, I use My maps. This allows me to save my route and send it to friends. If in addition, I could decorate it with photos, it would be g...

Re: Quick Filter Ideas

Ahh, yes, it does change the focus, but leaves the entered text in place.

Well, F2 works splendidly. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Quick Filter Ideas

I really alike "Apply to other pane" idea, perhaps 2 fold - apply to other pane (leaving current pane also filtered) and "swap to other pane" meaning move your current filter to the other pane. No history to worry about then, only the current entry, for one thing. --- Not hijacking, but asking for a...

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

I don't consider it wasted time - I make my recommendations, and move on - sometimes developers listen to me, and other times they don't. As for Achiella - I noticed, and was going to mention it myself, and totally forgot :oops: - my comment was going to be something along the lines of "My, how time...

Re: Copying duplicate files

I use Xplorer² as my default file manager. However, the file manager in Windows 10 is still a lot better than previous generations, though it is a bit of a learning curve. With previous generations, you were offered the choice to replace the file or not if they were named the same when copying / mov...

Re: Copy/Move dialog UI Nitpicks

Have to say that E's analysis is spot on. It would work so much better if these were enacted.

One further enhancement would be to allow tabs from the opposite pane to be selected as well.

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

No, but most videos on YouTube explain things with links in the description, and further explain things using the comments.

I think that is what the poster might have been trying to get across.

Re: v2.504 Command Line for TWO panes

Nikos, I copied and pasted the command line from the batch file. So, it it's broke, it's not something wrong there. The two folders exist. I've tried it with both single pane and double pane layouts already running in the omnipresent x2. And as you know, I've put off x2 v3/4 due to a hatred for the...

Re: blog: find missing files

Brilliant! I love the use of the variable cntRule so that you can assign values on the fly without having to edit X2 every time, that is sheer genius!

Re: custom columns - multi file multi-column editing? - attributes editing

One thing: Nikos' ßetas are really much, much closer to Release Candidates, than they are ßetas. So, don't be discouraged / daunted by the fact that it is a ßeta releasae - it's still gonna be rock solid as the previously stable version that you have installed. And, IIRC, Nikos takes pains to make s...

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

I know what backstage view is, and I actually like it as I can get to a lot more information than a standard File menu gave me - things like options, the ability to check the build I'm on, updates, and a whole slew of info. In 3 clicks from an open doc, and 2 clicks from opening Word without a doc o...

Re: blog: what is this ultimate edition anyway?

If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth 10000. butt... there's always a butt, Many instructional videos are poor at conveying their point, and soooo drawn out that they risk being sophomoric. The best instructional videos are the old US military/government black and white movie...
