Re: How to Speed Up Favorite Files/Folders Menu With Sleeping Drive Paths

Thanks, that was the ticket! Somewhere along the way the other icon options got set somehow.

How to Speed Up Favorite Files/Folders Menu With Sleeping Drive Paths

[Using 20.90.0916] My Favorite Files/Folders Menus take a long time to come up when paths on it are located on external drives that have temporarily gone asleep. (I always have many external drives attached.) It seems like all the corresponding drives on the menu have to be awakened, maybe for the i...

BTW, here is something for you that will nicely flow around those issues and that I should make a GUI setting one day:

My goodness! Did not know about that tweak. I was going to ask why this kind of thing couldn't be done. Exactly what I needed.

Second concurrent foreground operation gives warning then all later foreground operations are blocked.

[Using 20.90.0916] Here's a longstanding issue I've been experiencing that I'm only just now reporting so it's not related to any recent changes. It's reproducible with /fresh. Follow instructions below. Start xyplorer /fresh In Configuration > File Operations > Background Processing: Enable Queue f...

Re: Default Tab being ignored when in locked home tab

Nope. Also checked the code, don't see any way how that could happen. :? Oy, found the problem. Oversight on my part. The tab had the home zone set, but somehow it became unlocked. I use the middle-mouse button to go to the home zone and so I thought things were all still set since this is a tab I'...

Re: Default Tab being ignored when in locked home tab

It sure sounds like a bug, but I cannot repro it here. :? Ok, I wasn't able to reproduce it either using /fresh. I recall way back adding a tweak you provided that controlled something about the order of lookup in situations like this. I thinking that tweak may still be in my configuration and is n...

Default Tab being ignored when in locked home tab

[Using 20.90.0916] I have a tab with the home zone set and locked. To the left of this tab, I have a tab set to Default. When I'm currently in the locked home zone tab and navigate to a path outside of the home zone (and not under it) using say, the Favorite Folders menu, I go to the path but remain...

What Happened to Go To Dragged Item?

Hi,
I'm using version 19.90.0100 and only now discovered that Go To Dragged Item is no longer in the drag menu when you drag something from outside of XYplorer into the list with the right mouse button. Is this great feature no longer available or was it accidentally dropped?

You need to activate "Allow Custom Keyboard Shortcuts in Preview"
by right clicking in the preview Window and using "Advanced Options..."
in the context menu!
Ah, that was the ticket! Thanks.

Keyboard shortcut to move back to List from Floating Preview

Hi, Two questions: 1. I bring up a floating preview on an image, which gives primary window focus to the preview window. I then want to press a key to move back to the List with full window focus and control. What shortcut can I use to do that or what function can I bind to a key for doing that and ...

v19.00.0102: No longer see total folder size in status bar when only folders selected

Using v19.00.0102: When I select multiple folders only and calculate folder sizes, I just see the count of folders in the status bar without the total size. This seems a consequence of changes introduced in v19.00.0102. Please restore the ability to always see total size of selected folders, even if...

Re: Floating Preview Zoom level resets when updates occur elsehwere in folder

Thanks for the fix in v18.90.0132. I just discovered another variation of the issue (using 19.00.0002): When I pop up and rename the parent folder containing the viewed image, all in XYplorer, the image zoom setting reverts as in the other situation. (Renaming a parent folder based on information I ...

Yes, auto-refresh does seem to be the cause of the issue. Thanks.

Floating Preview Zoom level resets when updates occur elsehwere in folder

[Not sure if this is a bug exactly or an unfortunate side-effect, but it's a nuisance. The behavior is not new.] Here's the use case: I'm viewing an image in floating preview that I have temporarily zoomed into so I can better read the text. In another program, I am editing the contents and/or names...
