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?

Re: Way to mass rename folders only?

x2 can do exactly what you want if you first load up a scrap container with the folders you want to rename. Install Kilmetead's LocaleSearch tool. With LocaleSearch installed, select the top-level folders you want to have all their sub-folders renamed and press the toolbar button you created. Clear ...

Re: baby steps towards deep paths

Rats? I didn't get that from K's ramblings, more of the Mikey variety of home pests not WIllard. :devil: Well, in that case, by all means forget the cat and get a borzoi instead! Great for rats, cats, even ground moles and opossum. However, if the neighbor's child has a kitten, then it's near certai...

Re: xplorer2 half price sale today

There is, weirdly, a toolbar button which is for "Donate" I'm beginning to understand the origins of the phrase "It's Greek to me"! Has nothing to do with the character set of the words, but with the mindset (or lack thereof?) of the user base. And don't encourage him to add a toolbar button for "A...

Re: xplorer2 half price sale today

Why do you make it so difficult to help you? At one time there was a method to provide a donation. Heck, from the forum I can't even find a decently easy way to get to zabkat.com from the index or any page. Why do you keep it a secret? Then if the user is really determined they go looking about the ...

ESC/Cancel doesn't stop the Flatten Folder process

I selected a "few" folders and pressed shift-ENTER to put all the files into a single scrap window. I do this quite often as this is one of my favorite features of x2. However, in this case I realized after I started I didn't need that group so I pressed ESC to cancel, got the dialog box that stated...

Re: Browse to parent folder via breadcrumbs fails

clicking on the breadcrumb bar is the same as typing the (parent) path name. Yep. Editing the address bar to the parent name also fails. About 3 out of 4 times. Well, "working alternative" is a little of a misnomer. I usually try two or three times with the mouse before I realize I need to take my ...

Using 3.3.0.2 Ult 32 bit on 32 bit Win 7 pro Browsing a folder on a slow network drive (transfer rates run about 130kB/sec - I think the server must be at somebody's house on a dial-up line :evil: ).

Re: Transferring files locks up X2

I've seen and reported this behavior multiple times. In my experience, the file transfers across a network are highly likely to lock up x2 for the duration or the large part of the time the transfer is in place. I've seen some cases where the transfer of many large files across home or work networks...
