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

Re: Dropbox and color tag

before you close the computer, make sure xplorer2 is fully closed with ALT+X, then it should work

Re: Locate the menu for sort by regular expression "Casablanca 1984"

you must be talking about the "fuzzy grouping" command, which is available in scrap windows only

Re: Dropbox and color tag

are you talking about the colors that paint AROUND the filename? These rely on file paths. If the path changes, then the color will be lost

what if you go out of the dropbox folder (while xplorer2 is running) then go back in again, will the color tag show?

Re: Hover Selection Help!

make sure you have "save settings on exit" enabled and leave xplorer2 browsing a folder without custom settings. For more information see here: www.zabkat.com/blog/settings-headaches.htm

Re: build 5001 released

there are a number of considerations that make a permanent drivebar tricky. I could put one drivebar in the titlebar of each pane (where the clickable path is) but what if someone has 20 drives connected? So the only feasible solution is to offer a drop-down list there instead of a drivebar likewise...
