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...

Re: Wildcard for single digit in Mass Rename

Thank you. After a careful reading of the documentation, I figured out that since the names were all the same except for one digit in the same spot, that I could do what I wanted with Match and replace and a range token, leaving the replace field blank. It just would have been a lot easier with a fe...

Wildcard for single digit in Mass Rename

I don't know what I'm missing but I thought the wildcard for a single digit is "?". I'm using Match and replace part to find "8(a space)(single digit)" and replace it with just "8" to get rid of the space followed by a single digit. I've tried "8 ?" in What to match: and it does nothing.

Re: Context manu copy path name

I cannot tell you the number of times I've looked for "Copy path" then had to try and remember it's called "Copy name" by xplorer2. I wish it would get changed because name just means the file name to me.

Re: Change Windows 10 User Name

I tried that and the explanations were too involved and involved registry editing and it seemed to me the consequences and possibility of screwing up a brand new computer barely a few days old were just too scary for me.
