no

at present the best it can do is dip into ZIP files, but you'll need winXP for that (or at least 2000 with zipfolders support). There are a couple of FAQs on this topic

sure thing just use the /S command line option to specify which registry key to use. So you can have /S:latex and /S:html (names don't matter) which will create two separate registry keys (Editor2latex & Editor2html respectively). Then you pretty much have 2 different programs, you can have totally ...

2x does that for you automatically. You don't have to do anything now, if you are trying to fix the location of the editor/viewer window to some specific spot, you're out of luck since 2x will always use the last coords (wherever you moved/sized the viewer last) if you need more control, use the ext...

typical for windows, isn't it? They make a good job, then they leave a couple of small details out (like the sort by extension you mention) which make the whole "product" unusable in the long term, since it ends up hurting your tits ;) it wouldn't be easy for me to repair this glitch --- i'd have to...

well, i don't think that you can do any better than the present standard association procedure (what would i>you</i> want to see instead? -- i can't see much room for improvement) the only think i could add in the future is a menu item calling the standard association dialog directly within 2x, so a...

One of the sweetest things offered by 2xExplorer are these little things called wildcards (also known as filters, templates etc). Wildcards are shorthands for matching a range of strings or names. They are used all over the place in 2x, e.g. for selecting a subset of the files shown. Wildcards are c...

no you need to go the system way -- use Start | Folder options if you can't stand the regular explorer sight :). Another option would be to use the registry directly to edit the relevant key e.g. <b>HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\txtfile\shell\open</b>, but I'd only recommend that to people with <i>substantial</...

I don't have any problem copying or pasting such files (e.g. ".pipa" ) It is true that windows and 2x won't let you rename a file into something that is just extension, but you can cheat u...

Dwukwiat (love the cartman avatar :) ) 2x has problems with large numbers arithmetic (still stuck at third grade, see? ;) ) It just can't count above 4GB, the limit that would fit in 4 bytes (= 2^31 - 1). Weak! The only exception is the free space shown on the status bar, which is done correctly usi...

<b>rogthefrog</b>

i bet your problem is not the hilighting; you must be using the folder object someplace else (even within 2xExplorer, e.g. the other pane), that's why you get the sharing violation and are unable to delete it.

do all such shortcuts cause a crash or is it only a few network links that cause trouble (if so what are these networks? --- unix etc).

If you try double-clicking the same troublesome shortcuts from windows explorer, do you get any error messages?
