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.
Can I use a sale price for buying a new license as a gift for a high school student?

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.

Oh this is awesome! Previous methods to set the Modified-Date to the Picture-Date have been not nearly as easy.

Yes, it does now. Was kinda surprised that it did, because last time I checked, before making the changes above, it did not.

Looks like what's needed is re-installing the PDF viewer, or at least updating the registry to use a real viewer instead of Windows' default / glcndFilter.dll Shell extension information for .PDF ... 1.

Re: blog: anti-phishing attachments with xplorer2

Um. Using 4.2.0.1 ULT x64 2019-05-14. My Quick viewer Draft mode has never displayed anything. This is before and after changing PDF viewers on Win8. Even the context menu does not pop up. Native mode uses PDF X-Change Shell Extensions dll 7.0.328.2 so that context menu belongs to the viewer (zoom, ...

Re: Programmable column

Recently upgraded to 4.2.0.0 ULT x64 2019-03-01. But now the programmable column's System call seems to be appending a "_" underscore to its output. Change System to execute a simple Echo command and the _ stays. Remove the System call and the _ is gone. Is this a regression?

Re: Programmable column

The 'plugin' returns six to seven data items, the most important of which are six to nine characters long. The casing helps the user with reading the information; spacing between items also helps. The important items are standard international terms, so they need to appear in the form that people ex...

Re: Programmable column

Please make the Programmable Column leave the uppercase/lowercase alone!
My program to populate the column produces output that is cased a certain way, but the Column throws that away :(

Re: blog: cleanup bad quality pictures

Now writing a program like ImgChk to serve as a handler for the Programmable column. Calling a PHP interpreter with a script and file properties causes xp2 to crash. Calling a compiled EXE works much better. However, switching to another folder before the Detail pane is finished populating can still...
