XYplorer 8.30 has been released on 31-Aug-2009. Here's a quick introduction to the main new features:
For example, scanning a complete drive for PDFs surely takes a while. With Search Results Caching enabled you can go back to your results (safely preserved in a locked tab!) at any time and show them in a fraction of a second.
Note that all file properties (Size, Dates, Attributes...) shown in the list are up-to-date even in a cached search since only the filenames are cached, not the properties.
Simply type the patterns into the Address Bar, for example:
>xy = jump to the next item containing "xy"
Wildcards are fully supported, and you can store an unlimited number of jump links in your Catalog or Favorites. Next time you want to listen to your Chuck Berry collection buried in a list of 20,000 mp3s -- just define a jump link once and the rest is a single click that takes you from one Chuck Berry to the next.For example:
>chuck = jump to the next List item containing "chuck" anywhere in the name >???? = jump to the next List item that's 4 chars long >*##* = jump to the next List item with at least 2 consecutive numbers in the name >*.txt = jump to the next item ending with ".txt" > = remove any coloring now
If you are not interested in jumping and just want the colors, put two ">" at the beginning. If you use more than one pattern at a time (separated by |) no jumping takes place:
>>xy = color all occurrences of "xy" >>xy|2009 = color all occurrences of "xy" and "2009" >xy|2009 = (same as above)
Jump links are easily added to the Catalog and thus turned into a one-click affair:
Tip: You can jump upwards by holding Shift.
The command is accessible via a user-defined Custom Keyboard Shortcut or directly from the Customize Keyboard Shortcuts dialog:
File types supporting EXIF are JPEG and TIFF. If no EXIF date is found in a file the Modified date is not touched.
Tip: Using the Scripting command formatdate() you can also shift EXIF dates by any interval before time stamping a file. A practical example would be to shift the modified date of your photos after coming back from a holiday in a different time zone:
//set modified date of current file to its EXIF + 6 hours ::timestamp m, formatdate("<dateexif>", , "h", 6);
