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...

Re: v4.1 released

"organize macro" menu command allows you to change the macro definition, but it isn't ideal (small space) It wasn't obvious to me that I could even scroll down in the Description in the Properties dialog, it doesn't show scroll bars. I think of the properties dialog as a File operation rather than ...

Edit a macro after it’s saved

Is there a way to edit a macro after it’s saved without running it first? I don’t see a way to do it in Macros > Organize… which is where I would expect to find it. “Edit Macro…” should really be called “Edit Last Macro Run…” Also, the “More…” dialog at the bottom of the Macro menu seems slightly re...

Macros don't preserve full screen view

I just noticed something odd, macros don’t seem to like full screen windows. I created a very simple macro that just triggers List View (command 32782) so I could run it from a toolbar button. When I click the button with xplorer² in full screen the window shrinks down very slightly around the edges...

Attach Saved filters to toolbar buttons

Am I correct in my impression that I'll be able to use the macro recorder to attach commands that don't have command numbers to buttons? The specific example I'm thinking of is I've always wanted to attach some of my Saved filters (ex: Created past week) to toolbar buttons. The stuff Menuhack could ...

Re: xplorer2 suggestion box

I don't know if you can perform magic, but having "Calculate subfolders size automatically" on really slows down the program loading. On my last computer it slowed the program down so much it would give up trying to calculate it and I'm surprised by how long it takes on my new computer too (like hal...

Re: xplorer2 suggestion box

I'll give you the list I sent you last year that was an update of a list I first sent you in 2007. I repeat what I said then, that I am an interface usability freak. I went through my old list of suggestions and I was delighted to see several of them were implemented. This list is loosely organized ...

Re: xplorer2 top 10 super trix

for individual folder/item marking purposes, color tagging (not coding - the one from CUSTOMIZE menu) is more efficient I set this up before color tagging. Still with custom color coding you get the options to make things bold, italicized, change the color of the text, and in my case change the col...

Re: xplorer2 top 10 super trix

I use color coding to highlight new files (created past 24 hrs). I also use very specific color coding rules that only label one specific folder to make my most important folders stand out.

If I upgrade to Ultimate …

Will it install over Professional and preserve all my customizations. After I pay the difference will my lifetime license still work. Professional exports it customization to a REG file, so how do you back them up in Ultimate? I may be slightly confused as to what "portable" means. Lately I have bee...

Re: xplorer2 v4.0 released

I, for example, want to create a macro to toggle "calculate folder sizes automatically" I can't tell if the macros will toggle the checkbox automatically. I also can't tell how to reach a setting on a particular tab in a dialog box. this checks the box but I have not figured out how to get the curr...

Re: xplorer2 v4.0 released

I wish to repeat that you really need to set up a subforum just for macros where people can share what they've come up with and help each other with them. I have a feeling this might turn into a thriving subtopic. I, for example, want to create a macro to toggle "calculate folder sizes automatically...
