Where is the Customize Age Graphic dialog found? I would like to change the colours to align with the colours I use in the Color Filters. Using version 18.20.0100

File selection checkbox missing on portable device (Android)

Noticed that folders on the PC have a checkbox for selecting files while a pane displaying a folder on the Android device does not have the checkbox. Is that normal, or have I overlooked a configuration setting? Tried changing the Sticky Checkbox setting, with no effect.

copy from Win Explorer creates duplicate files

After selecting some files from Windows Explorer (8.1) and using either drag-drop or Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V into XYplorer (14.70), duplicate files are created with -01, -02 etc suffixes. By contrast, the same operation entirely within XY pops a permission dialog to overwrite the existing files. I much prefer...

Re: Unable to display thumbnail for DNG image file

Much as I like free solutions, they simply do not work in this situation. Tried every one I could find, without success. Downloaded and installed the trial version of FastpictureViewer, and it worked immediately. Have just purchased a full licence. Thanks for the help. And thanks very much for conti...

Unable to display thumbnail for DNG image file

Running XY 14.60 on Windows 8.1 64-bit. Had been completely unable to display DNG files, then I downloaded and installed DNGCodec_2_0_Installer.exe from Adobe.com. Afterwards, the DNGs are viewable as thumbnails in Windows Explorer. DNGs were converted from Nikon NEF files (Nikon D7000) using Adobe ...

Color filters versus AeroLite on Windows 8.1

Have been using color filters in XY successfully on Win 7. Got a new Win8.1 computer and learning its quirks. The Windows Taskbar is partially transparent, which I find annoying. Found a workaround which involves using the AeroLite theme (workaround is found here: http://www.eightforums.com/customiz...

Re: Script help - path names as arguements

Excellent! The single-line function did not work. There was an error dialog from the external program that the folder could not be found. However, your first version replacement for my line worked perfectly. Did not try the second one... Dunno if it's just me, but I found the syntax regarding quotat...

Script help - path names as arguements

Looking for help with the correct syntax for a command. Trying to pass the pathname for left and right pane to an external program. I've put msg statements into the script for debugging, and they appear to return the correct (expected) values. Also hard-wired some example pathnames into the script, ...

Re: Quick Name Search Info - does not appear!

Was similarly confused by the lack of the Pink bar. The What's New page shows its linkage with the F3 key, which I had never been in the habit of using. So I was completely confused when the results of the Find dialog appeared upon pressing F3. Re-configured my office computer to assign F3 onto Quic...

Re: Access denied on network share -- solved by Windows Expl

Yes, I've run as Administrator Since I am using a non-standard software in a corporate environment, I don't anticipate getting any support from the IT dept to resolve a rights issue. I will just have to work around the problem -- and that seems feasible by being patient, and trying to access the fol...

Re: Access denied on network share -- solved by Windows Expl

I went to a folder on the local hard drive and created two new items: a Junction to another folder, and a Symbolic link to another folder. Tried the right-click on both of them, and it worked successfully -- the Junction item was displayed on the menu. Returned to the network share where the folder ...

Re: Access denied on network share -- solved by Windows Expl

That menu item was already ticked, but there is nothing on the context menu about junctions. also, I can modify the contents of the context menu with the "Folder Tree..." button, and have successfully added or removed, say, "Open in other pane". However, the list does not contain anything about Junc...

Re: Access denied on network share -- solved by Windows Expl

Connected to the office network, and the issue is present again - click on the Junction in the Tree, and XY returns an error that Access is Denied. However, some "random" sequence of selecting other native folders on the drive, and then back to the junction folder makes it work properly. I haven't i...

Re: Access denied on network share -- solved by Windows Expl

I am currently at a remote location. Connected to the office network via VPN, and the junction folder works properly. I will need to wait until I return to the office tomorrow to try again when I am connected directly to the network. Not sure how to get the Target on my "office" computer (Win 7-64);...
