Re: Symmetry

Just what does this have [to do with] the OP? Well, you posited your ideas, Nikos dismissed them as more or less "not a good idea", and you didn't fight back. I argued in your case, Nikos became sullen, grumpy, non-committal, and tried to change the topic, which is always a sure sign that his strat...

Re: Symmetry

Ah hah! I knew the old cynic was still reading even when he pretends not to. Remember, a more symmetrical context menu can set you free! Really! Every now and then even PJ makes a worthy complaint. :D As opposed to an UN worthy complaint? Even though I tried to limit my "complaint" (i.e. "suggestio...

Symmetry

Can you consider improving the symmetry in X2 by: 1. All Organize dialogs have "DELETE". Can they also have an "ADD" button? 2. The tab context menu has "CLOSE". Can it also have "OPEN", like the ctrl-Ins keyboard combination? 3. Can the Filter bar have a drop down for history like the Address bar o...

Re: Toolbars disappearing

Very simply, no edits were made to the INI. Only browsed a copy of the file. As you mentioned and I saw in the INI, toolbars are not separate objects attached where needed, but integrated into each main view. Complicated any ideas I had of slicing and dicing the INI to build the layouts I wanted ......

Re: Painless Custom Toolbars (No Morphine/Tourniquets Required)

Any chance this tool can be extended to copying toolbars between layouts?

Toolbars disappearing

Shut down all programs, including x2, and rebooted to resolve an issue unrelated to x2 and ... lost my 2nd toolbar! x2 Ultimate 3.4.0.0, on Win 7, working in "portable" mode with settings saved to the INI file on a USB thumb drive. So after extensive research I determined x2 just went brain-dead. Ex...

Re: feedback required: scripting xplorer2

Looking ahead to where mainstream computing is heading, I'll offer the following: X2 currently has scripting capabilities of CMD/BAT scripting and, my preference, dumping a list of files with a user-selectable table of properties into an Excel spreadsheet and using VBA to automate the tasks. The inc...

Re: blog: slow network remedies

Very good, Nikos! Thanks for the summary for those of us who are destined to have our files forever trapped across networks. I have the "fast network access" option checked. I'll experiment with other settings to see what optimizes performance in my situation. One other item I've just discovered is ...

Re: build 3401 released

Crashes are not the only way to lose the tab history. Any time I have to close and reopen X2 the history is gone. Sometimes, the slow responses of the remote servers I access prevents X2 even from restoring the tabs to where they were when the program closed. You've mentioned you have limited networ...

Re: Khronos: A Plugin for Ageing Gracefully

I would like to not thank the user pj for his apparent inability to upgrade x2, beta-test, or stick to giving feedback on the subject at hand. :biggrin: One hopes he puts more diligence into the space-satellite industry than he does our more menial Earth-bound considerations, else large metal objec...

Re: build 3401 released

Real bugs? "REAL BUGS" you ask? Well, I still call the loss of tab history when x2 exits or abends to be a bug! Yes, i know it's WAD, but it's a poor design! Please, please include this in the next release! I can't tell you the number of times I could have benefitted when x2 dies and I have to try t...

Re: blog: check your shell extensions per file type

Any OS restrictions? Work with XP through Ten?

By the way, is that REALLY the filename you want to use for the utility?
