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 ...

Re: PDFs with Preview pane on open a File Download dialog

did you tick the option to add the shell extensions during Sumatra installation? You can run this tool to see if you have a preview handler for PDFs Thank you, with your help I fixed it. Since you might see more problems like mine, I thought I would tell you how I fixed it, since it the process was...

PDFs with Preview pane on open a File Download dialog

Since you mention Sumatra PDF in your latest blog post and I recently (last week) switched to it, I’m going to post a problem I’ve been meaning to bring up with xplorer² and PDFs. In xplorer² if I have the Preview pane on and set to the Native tab, when I select a PDF I don’t get a preview but a Fil...

Re: new beta version 4004

you could try and see what happens. Some commands take funny paths in xplorer2 so it could be tricky. But you can just use the main menu to activate any of the saved filters through the dialog, and that will definitely work I’ve been meaning to mention after the final release came out I was able to...

Distiguish animated GIFs

I once tried an alternative file explorer that I immediately hated that had one good idea. It could tell the difference between a regular GIF and an animated GIF. What I think it did was put little frame count overlay over the lower right corner of the image. I haven't been able to search for or dif...
