Re: 4K Video Issue with Toolbars ... REDUX

to clarify, the small icon skin is called x2skin.png and the big one x2skin_XL.png if you install xplorer2 fresh, it picks the 48x48 skin for "large" and renames it appropriately if you manually interfere, you must stick to the above names and make sure both bitmaps/icon strips have the same number ...

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

you can make fonts in xplorer2 bigger using various tricks explained here

also a fresh install will pick up better DPI settings, but of course you'd lose all your customizations

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

are you talking about the standalone VLC getting restricted like that? That would be very strange if you tweaked xplorer2 shortcut icon properties for compatibility, try to undo them and see if there's any change. Or even better, save your settings, do a fresh and complete reinstall (factory setting...

Re: are you a ribbon or menu person?

xplorer2 should show fine on 4k screens, if freshly installed or if you use the recommended tweaks some people have problems when they use a 4k monitor together with a regular monitor, which is an area I have no statistics nor the capability to fix. But then you can use compatibility fixes and let w...

Re: Letters & Numbers Bar

for example create a macro with this content (CUSTOMIZE > MACROS > EDIT MACRO)

Code: Select all

getfocus
sendkey M
then save it as "letter M" and add it to a toolbar. You will find all these steps explained here
www.zabkat.com/blog/menuhack-customize-toolbar.htm

likewise you can create any number of key buttons.

Re: Letters & Numbers Bar

even this, do you want to see 36 letter buttons on a toolbar?
my recommendation is to write a macro to send a letter to the active view and assign it on a toolbar button. You'd need 36 of these, see the manual for more information for SENDKEY command

Re: Dropbox and color tag

this is by design to minimize eye strain :)
there is an advanced option "filename color coding applied even on inactive views", not sure if it will work for the tree?

Re: functions in the panel when we are in the tree

this from tips file You can switch among various panes using the keyboard. <Tab> on its own takes you to the inactive view, which becomes active. <Shift+Tab> takes you to the addressbar, <Ctrl+Tab> to the tree (if visible) and <Ctrl+Shift+Tab> to the quick previewer. To get back to the active folder...

Re: Dropbox and color tag

when you close the window with X, xplorer2 is still running, that's why it doesn't save the settings
only when you fully quit x2 will it save everything for next time
FILE > EXIT (or ALT_X) is the only way out

Re: Dropbox and color tag

X button does close, which is what you need most of the time, but that doesn't save all settings
when you shut down, sometimes windows doesn't wait for programs to save settings, with the bad results you've noticed
