Re: Parameters Not Initialized for Empty Folder

...in the meantime you can use $L and make sure your scripts run from the left pane only Please don't assume this will work in all cases. My usual workflow is LEFT/TOP is old, RIGHT/BOTTOM is new so I've been running scripts like this almost exclusively in the bottom pane. Thanks for taking a look ...

Re: Parameters Not Initialized for Empty Folder

When setting up a new project folder, I can't get the folder's name for further processing. I have to actually search all items in the hard-coded parent folder (sFolder) to find the newest item, then use that result to continue building the new project folder structure. I can't just use the $P varia...

Parameters Not Initialized for Empty Folder

I've had to work around this little glitch, but thought I'd bring it up to at least discuss the reasoning or if it can be added to the long list of minor fixes: Essentially, parameters $P, $C and $U are null if the folder in focus has no files, but $L and $R are set. Easily tested with this simple V...

Re: new beta version 4004

Can you please explain the function of this added feature in the beta? * CUSTOMIZE > FOLDER GROUPS > STARTUP menu command restores the folder tabs available when you last started xplorer². This command helps people that use network drives, who occasionally forget to connect some of them before xplor...

Re: xplorer2 on mac?

WOW! First we lose Kilmatead Wait. Wait. Wait a moment. WHAT!? See this topic . We're all wondering and hoping someone with any information can post. My vote is the local magistrate was thoroughly ticked off with his acerbic "wit" that K is in the pokey for a few months. ---------------------------...

Re: Search within selected folders

Ah, yes, I can see that annoying some people. :D I did it that way just because I like to start searches tabula-rasa, with all fields clear, so I don't end up overlooking that I had last-searched for some "containing text" and then wondering why follow-up searches kept failing despite having no int...

Re: Any news from Kilmatead?

Due to another incident in Eileen's Lounge where we lost a member who suddenly stopped posting, I'm also concerned about K's silence. A post about bitcoin on Hexus on Sept. 11th of last year mentions an accident, but then after that date I had a brief PM interchange with him on Oct. 1st, where he me...

Re: Change Windows 10 User Name

Can you create a new user <first name> and just set that up as your primary login? You haven't used it much so moving stuff to the new account shouldn't be that difficult.

Re: Symmetry

Nikos, I have to admire ( :roll: ) your consistency in responding to reports of "issues", "improvements", "enhancements", what have you. It's your program, your time and effort so you have to decide your priorities. Over the 11+ years I've used x2, that one characteristic has been steady as a beam o...

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...
