Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

happy birthday! sorry I don't have anything of a solution for a birthday present. I saw this post in the old forum too The solution was so simple I feel like a dolt for not thinking of it YEARS ago. I just wrote (well, asked someone) to write a macro that showed the Open dialog in the right folder....

Re: xplorer² macros

the idea is that by running you make sure that what you save does what is intended of it. How is that a hassle? It's a bit of a hassle because for years and years I've created macros in Word 2013 (Autohotkey, Quickkeys (Mac)) I've developed the habit of saving my work in progress. You are saying yo...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

I misunderstood then. I thought that the search you were using was from within the Office applications, when looking to open previously saved documents. Thank you. Not to beat a dead horse, I am looking for documents from inside Word 2013. I don't use that awful Backstage tab Word wants us to use t...

Re: Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

One thing you could do is to follow this article: https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/set-a-default-working-folder-786200a7-f5f2-4d26-a3ae-b78c60dd5d3b Sorry it took me so long to reply. This doesn't effect the Search feature, only save and open. I'm convince the file search in the legacy Open...

Re: blog: what is this ultimate edition anyway?

I just tried to upgrade from Professional to Ultimate basically for the heck of it and told me my license was over a year old. I have a lifetime license so I'm slightly confused. "Unfortunately your professional key is more than a year old, so you cannot upgrade at a discount. If you need the ultima...

Re: forum relocation

Is there a way to translate old bookmarks so they work with the new forum? I played around with the URL for a while but never could get it to work. BTW, usually just searching for the end of a bookmark URL or title refound what I wanted. I also suggest you put a ZabKat favicon somewhere so my new bo...

Re: xplorer2 v4.2 FINAL released

I would mention I spent a few minutes looking for the new Find similar under Tools, before I realized it ONLY shows up in a scrap pain. I don’t understand why it can’t work in the current folder. Since you seem to be adding photo tools I want to suggest again I would really like something like the n...

Word 2013 - Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder

Keep “Search Documents” from resetting legacy Open dialog to Documents folder Every time I use the Search Documents feature in upper right corner of the legacy Open dialog (I hate Backstage) it resets the default file location to the Documents folder which is one folder up, which I see the next time...

Re: Smarter rename

Are you using Windows 10?
I have Rename Master it does so much more than I need that I don't feel like starting a separate program just to capitalize a few file names.

Re: Smarter rename

By Trimming I mean removing any specified number of characters from the beginning or (usually) end of a string. By case changing, I mean exactly what they do in a word processor like Microsoft Word. I assume you have one, usually they have options to Capitalize The First Letter of each word or selec...

Re: Smarter rename

the idea is that mass rename inserts text without the user's supervision, so it needs to be "governed", whereas a simple F2 rename is user-controlled. Anyway i'll add this, automatically removing illegal stuff :xmas: As it sounds like you might be looking to improving mass renaming I want to mentio...

Re: xplorer2 suggestion box

I've got another suggestion for a small addition. I would like the name of any filter being applied, built in or saved, to show somewhere; Status Bar, Info bar, Address bar, even consider the tooltip for the funnel icon. Sometime I shut down the program with a filter applied and come back and would ...
