Re: File Managers

Don used to describe XY as an "explorer style file manager with a second pane". I suspect the way he has implemented the second pane makes it difficult, perhaps impossible, to add a second tree.

Re: File Managers

You started this thread about File Managers Don. ...But maybe some of you use other file managers for specific tasks (or maybe for most tasks, and XYplorer just for specific tasks). That would be interesting to know. Not to copy those features. I think it's totally okay and normal to use different f...

Help yourself along the bloat cascade: https://www.xyplorer.com/freezer.php
Why use an outdated version of XYplorer that isn't bloated, when there are other current file managers that aren't bloated?

Re: File Managers

Or Tablacus Explorer. Both are basic file managers, like XY used to be before it became bloated.

The value 0 (= hex 000000) is interpreted by XYplorer as "take the factory default value". :)
Why not leave the entry blank to use the default?

Re: AirPixels

Don, if you spent as much time learning a modern language as you do on "bells and whistles", then you would have a 64bit multithreading version of XY by now.

Re: Show off your Xyplorer!

Stay clear of 3D Color Changer 4, it messes things up no end. It has strange effects on programs, colours randomly change. It's not been updated since 2003 and clearly development has been abandoned. I reported bugs years ago, and got no response.

It's a total mess!!

Re: Update Forum Software?

we_universal looks horrible, but then I suppose black and white is appropriate for a program that is written in a language developed in 1964, long before colour graphics.

Sorry Don, but I can't help but dig at BASIC, it is such an appalling language.

Re: Name Sort not valid in 18.70

It can be very annoying, whichever way the sort is done. I use different text editors, depending on how I want lists treated, since some ignore hyphens and some don't. If you do use a flag, then underscores might also be flagged. There may be other characters in different languages - another can of ...

Re: Name Sort not valid in 18.70

Nothing unusual (or un-usual) in that, hyphens are often ignored in sort routines. Many words can be either hyphenated or not; re-name (rename), re-number etc...

Ctrl + Left mouse button for me also, ver. 57.0.4

Re: XY_Update downloader

I listen, and understand; but then I was a voluntary helper for both the R.N.I.B. and Guide Dogs for the blind, so I have worked a lot with people who have sight deficiencies. Far too many people do not understand the problems partially sighted people have.
