xplorer² highlight search text in Native view

I've got a small suggestion for xplorer². Could xplorer² also highlight the search text in the previews for Search results in Native view? xplorer² currently only highlights text in the Draft view. Highlighting text in Native view, makes it easier to find the text I want to change after I open the f...

Re: blog: large folder speed

Here’s something I don’t understand. I spend most of my time in the Documents folder and if I have Details view and Calculate folder size on I guess it’s reasonable to expect a short lag the first time I open it. What I don’t understand is why if I navigate into a subfolder, and I then navigate back...

Make macro toggle between two commands

I would like to make a macro to attach to a button, that toggles between a specific filter applied by a macros and Show All. Click once to apply filter macro, click again to turn it off with Show All. It's a little bit of finesse I've been thinking of doing, but may be more trouble than it's worth. ...

Re: xplorer2 4309 beta

I've been been trying this beta out and appreciate the changes you made. I'll keep playing with, but I get the feeling we are getting close to the final release.

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

Okay you asked for it. * Ctrl+mousewheel changes thumbnail size as well as view styles, so you can easily view huge thumbnail previews I’ve noticed something about how this works in folder windows. If I scroll down a long list of thumbnails and want to change the thumbnail size, the window jumps all...

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

As for unhiding, there's no way to unhide using the menu, since the folder is hidden so you cannot click on it I was thinking you could "Unhide this folder" when it reappears after you uncheck "Use blacklist." If this is hard to implement, I suggest a warning box along the lines of "Warning, undoin...

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

“I can do the button focus, but not sure about the name. Some people may remember the path portion only. Perhaps a registry tweak to limit just for names?” About button focus, to be clear the behavior I’m thinking of is the “find next” gets focus only if you click in the text entry box otherwise th...

* all organize dialogs (bookmarks etc) come with a filter box to locate an entry quickly by keyword. Click on FIND NEXT button to select the next matching list item. Double-click on the item found to edit or activate it. Despite your instructions to click FIND NEXT, I know a little time will pass a...

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

* The folder tree shows some folders twice, and some that people seldom use. You can hide folders you don't need using the tree context menu (xplorer² > HIDE THIS FOLDER) on the unwanted folders. To show all folders again right click on the tree background and tick off USE BLACKLIST menu option. No...

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

I read your quick reply and immediately went to install the beta and now have another question. I notice the beta installer wants to create a separate folder for it. I'm not sure what this means. Does it mean the old version is still there and I could delete the beta separately if I decide to and th...

Re: xplorer2 4308 beta

The two improvements you specifically mention have got me so excited I can't wait for for the release. So beta releases are extremely unlikely to hurt files? I would assume using new features might make the program crash, but the rest works like usual. The few times I briefly tried one of your compe...

Get rid of Microsoft “Welcome to Office” pop up

A Microsoft “Welcome to Office” window keeps popping up randomly days apart asking me to sign in. I want it to go away and I have never gone online when I use Office 2013 For Students (actually I only use Word 2013). As far as I know it started after a recent update to Office 2013. I went through Se...

Regex code to capitalize filenames (after 4301)

Now that xplorer2 version 4301 is out, I again ask... I give up. I’ve read the official documentation and started reading a few websites and regex just confuses me. I see the \u and \l and I think they can be used to capitalize file names. Could someone just write the code to capitalize filenames fo...

Alternative printer toner cartidge makers

I have a Brother HL 2280 DW laser printer and the toner cartridges (TN-450) cost a fortune ($50+). When I search for them online I find other compatible toner cartridges that are much, much cheaper. If they were only a little cheaper I would stick with Brother, but they are sometimes half as much. A...
