Re: Copy/Move dialog UI Nitpicks

Next round, using xp2 4.4.0.1 Ultimate x64. When in Dual Pane view, Edit -> 'Copy to' and 'Move to' both open the dialog box to select the destination. But Ctrl-F5 and Ctrl-F6 simply assume the other pane as the destination, and perform the operation without further prompting. This is great. But I w...

Plus Two to mjbrookes for fully-commented code! Good code has more characters of comments than code characters.

Re: taskbar icon jumplist (windows 10)

The windows task bar is not an xp2 issue, I believe. Don't even fool around - just try out these two utilities that do taskbar management:

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

Using 4.4.0.1 Ultimate from May 3, in the Tree pane it's easy to right-click Recycle Bin, choose xplorer2->Hide this folder, and Poof! Irrelevant tree items just disappear. Then to see the hidden entries again, right-click on some empty space and un-check/turn off "Use blacklist". Then to hide the u...

Re: Release 4.4.0.1: Old version on free-downloads.net

"referrer information" Assuming this comes into play only when one website sends traffic to another, I don't understand how it would be relevant. "strip the referrer information in your browser" Not sure what this means really, but testing shows the main browser *is* doing something unusual, because...

Are you seeing the same target URLs as below when you right-click/hover on a source link? I would examine your php script. Two browsers both take me to the bad place. |Source page |Label |Target URL / Query |Destination page | |-----------------------------------|------------------------------------...

Re: Release 4.4.0.1: Old version on free-downloads.net

Okay well, I followed the links at https://www.zabkat.com/alldown.htm labeled "MAIN download server" and that's how I ended up at that unsupported mirror. Also the buttons at https://www.zabkat.com/x2-64bit.htm lead over there too. In my confusion I installed the wrong version for my license. Howeve...

Downloading from that site today gave me 4.0.0.1 from 2018. Had to download from zabkat to get the current version.

Re: Smarter rename

Thanks for extending this feature to make it alone worth buying the whole package :) Edit: Gahhh never mind, this is already done in 4.4.0.0! Using 4.3.0.9 ULT x64 2020-03-01. In the Mass Rename Wizard, could you possibly add Ctrl-A / Select All to "What to match", "Target name template", and "Prede...

Re: Columns Do Not Persist When Changing Folders

Here's a consideration. Could we optionally have child folders respect the desktop.ini that exists in the parent folder? This is basically an alternative approach to implementing the Yes answer to the "Apply the same folder settings for all subfolders?" prompt. As in, achieving the same effect but w...

Re: Smarter rename

The new RegExp checkbox in 4.3.0.0 Ult has a hotkey conflict with the existing Rename button. It also fails to respond to its hotkey; a checkbox is supposed to toggle its checked/unchecked state when its hotkey fires. The obvious choice is to change the RE hotkey from Alt+R to Alt+E, because the Ren...

Re: Smarter rename

mass rename has the character range construct $[3:2] that specifies starting position and length
Could not find mention of this in the Help PDF. The documentation exists in the online manual, the program folder's version at x2Help.htm#ma_renwiz, and in this thread.

My license is already at the Ultimate level.

Re: Copy/Move dialog UI Nitpicks

Next round. 1. When the Opposite pane option button and textbox are greyed out, it is still possible to set focus to the textbox, by either clicking in there or tab-keying into there. The field correctly does not accept input, but it should not accept focus either. 2. Wishing to swap the positions o...

Yes, please add this to the $-token help. I always forget the syntax. Comma? Hyphen? Colon. Starting and ending position? Length.
