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!

true, "beta" means that I already tested the worst bits (alpha) on myself before inviting innocent bystanders :)

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...

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...

I misunderstood then. I thought that the search you were using was from within the Office applications, when looking to open previously saved documents.

Re: blog: what is this ultimate edition anyway?

I, personally, read faster than I watch those videos. Is there anyone who prefers to watch a video "if in a hurry"? Everyone over the age of 7 reads faster than watching videos. Videos have zero benefit for the users in situations like these and are vastly less informative and efficient, and easily...

Re: Pop up window behind the main window

first of all are you using "robust delete" or you just see the normal windows delete window? Err, good point. No guys I simply click on the "X" icon on xplorer2 toolbar (or click the "del" key on the keyboard) and the pop up window saying that it is impossible to delete some file that is in use app...

Re: Pop up window behind the main window

When you start to perform a robust delete operation (which is what I *think* you are doing), do you have the check box for B ackground operation checked, by chance? Reason I ask is that I usually run Xplorer² on me 'secondary' display, and the prompts usually pop up on the primary, so I don't have t...

Re: forum relocation

Well, this explains a lot. So, I use Firefox, and with Firefox, I don't just use the native containers feature, but an addon called Multi-Account containers. In a nutshell, it isolates credentials per container so you can log into the same site with different credentials simultaneously (seemingly). ...

Re: Smarter rename

I know it's not AUTOIT or these other sexy things, but VBS is still pretty ubiquitous. As far as I know, most everyone has WSCRIPT on their system. All you need is NOTEPAD to make changes. 2 things. 1) Awesome job, thank you! 2) VBS is by far sexier than having to have yet another executable / runt...

wrt trimming, xplorer2 rename has the character range construct $[3:2] that specifies a starting position and a length. This can be used either for search and replace or entire name replace, meaning that you can trim both start and end
I did not know this. Thanks, Nikos!

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 It's supposed to work.

Re: Any news from Kilmatead?

Exactly. While I knew less of him than many here, I would spend time, a lot of time, here and there and just read his posts - I loved his strong command of vocabulary a lot.
