Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

I guess Admin never expected that a user would try to swap names of two files with different extensions. If you look at it in a different way, doesn't "Swap file basename only" make more sense as far as being a safer way to go. This way you are maintaining the proper extension when renaming files w...

Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

I believe myrnalarson is making it a wish, "Swap Names (exclude extension)" or "Swap basename only". That's what I was getting at anyway.

Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

It actually wouldn't be a bad idea if Don made another swap filename function that left the extensions alone. https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6862&p=62604#p63037 It would seem that leaving the extension alone would be a wiser option to take in most cases. I'm always swapping filena...

Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

I did a little searching under myrnalarson and came up with a highend script here https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=6862&p=62604#p62605 . It's over 8 years old. I didn't go over the script in detail but it looks like there would be newer and easier ways to accomplish parts of the scr...

Re: thumbnail database follow external drvie

In this situation you would have to use a "named drive" for both of your external drives. Both external drives would be called the same name, like "Pictures", or whatever you want. After installing the external drive, you have to change the names of the drives using the right click context menu on t...

Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

My settings for the most part align with yours, but I have "Create all thumbnails at once" checked and I don't have the dimensions displayed on the thumbnails. Seems unlikely that those settings may be affecting your renaming, but you might test it. Unless the renaming for some files is out of the d...

Re: Thumbnails not updated after file is renamed

A number of settings could affect your situation... Was all your file renaming accomplished within XYplorer or was it done outside? Do you have auto refresh on? Do you have "Show cached thumbnails only" checked in Configuration | Thumbnails? Is "Create all thumbnails at once" checked in Configuratio...

Re: thumbnail database follow external drvie

Yes, you can assign the drive/path and have it portable. Look in the help file under Configuration | Configuration Dialog | Preview | Thumbnails. From the Thumbnails Configuration Help also look at "Named drives" as well.

Re: Full Row Click

I like the idea of this change for standard left click and middle click, but not so much for right clicking the area outside the actual filename. For those of us, like me who use the right click on white space often, this makes finding white space more difficult. It might be nice if you could apply ...

Re: search music xyplorer does skip opus files , can i include in the findfile?

But, it's quite easy to end up starting XY using the last used ini file with a name different than the normal XYplorer.ini. I got into that situation a number of times. Open XY and then open XY in a second instance using a different ini file (e.g., XY_gallery_mode.ini). If you close the first (origi...

Re: Abnormally high values for "Layout Window"

It just tries to retrieve their icons. That might cause a lag if they are on an unavailable network location, or if some heavy AV action is triggered. Good to know. I had no network browsing already checked since this computer isn't on a network. So in general I may be better off referring to icons...

Re: Abnormally high values for "Layout Window"

OK, I forgot about backups. I was most suspicious of 2 executables, one script and one non existent icon . One was DVDFab.exe that when started was checking servers for a long time. I'm not sure if it's checking their servers or checking mine, but in any case I don't have one. It took quite awhile f...

Re: Abnormally high values for "Layout Window"

I wish I had kept a copy of the catalog entries because now I don't remember specifically what they did, but they were not network related (no network on this computer). They were a visible part of the catalog and it was displayed/visible on startup.

Re: Abnormally high values for "Layout Window"

Ok, installed that last beta. It appears that the bulk of the time is taken up by "Load Catalog". I spent some time cleaning up the catalog after seeing the new load times with the beta. I had a few that I certainly didn't need and were probably put on only to test ideas from the forum. You notice t...
