Re: Multi-icon Tagging

Colored circles are already possible but not via clicking inside the custom column to assign them but by using a button, catalog entry, keyboard shortcut, etc.

Requires some logic and scripting...

Re: Catalog Item rename by F2

That sounds like that you aren't even using a caption for such an entry?

Re: Folders with a lot of files charge very slow

If you do not want to setup a cc for a specific tag, you could save the info in an extra column and display that instead. All extra columns are available without any further setup by right clicking the column header. You need a system when doing this^^ E.g. extra column 1 = artist, extra column 2 = ...

Re: Folders with a lot of files charge very slow

There is only one, non dynamic way to change this: Read what is necessary from these files (the metadata parts that you are displaying in the custom column(s)) and tag them afterwards. Then use custom columns that show these tags instead. Yeah, it requires a manual refresh when new / changed metadat...

Re: report quoted Fullname

Code: Select all

text quote(get("SelectedItemsPathNames", '\"|"'));
Not fully. The last selected element will not have the trailing backslash

Re: How to set a user button to show folder content in pop-up menu?

You mean I should enter in the user button each folder content (subfolders/files) line by line, as shown in the snapshot below? Ofc not. There is listfolder() / quicksearch()... By using a script would there be a single command to list everything under Z: in a menu? No, it requires multiple command...

Re: How to set a user button to show folder content in pop-up menu?

Script it?

Get files and folders for the current path (separately)
Bring them in the correct form for popupmenu (caption|data|icon), otherwise you wouldn't see any icons...
Display them and for the selected one decide depdending on if it is a file or a folder if you use a goto or an open command...
