Re: Use External Copy Handler with copyitem

Thank you for your response.
Is there an option to prevent xyplorer from locking during network transfers?

Use External Copy Handler with copyitem

When using the 'copyitem' script command on a network file, xyplorer ignores the external copy handler and uses window's copy handler instead (teracopy is even my windows default). Also, when doing a network transfer, xyplorer completely locks up until the transfer is complete. Enable background pro...

Re: Button to add folder to filename on copy

I did mean copy rather than move, sorry. Would this be possible without modifying the original file?

Button to add folder to filename on copy

Would this be possible to do using scripts in XY?
Select a file > Click a button > file is moved to D:\Shared with the old folder name as a new prefix

so C:\coolfiles\a.mp3 would become D:\Shared\coolfiles - a.mp3

Re: Add to Paper in Bash

I found an answer. If anyone stumbles on this --
The paper .txt files also use CRLF line terminators which need to be added to the bash command with \r as follows:

Code: Select all

echo -e "\r\nT:\OhHello\r" | iconv -f ascii -t utf16 >> /mnt/Paper/X.txt

Add to Paper in Bash

I have been having some trouble appending a directory to a txt paper folder in bash. I have found that I need to use iconv to convert the text to utf16 to even get it to appear properly in the text file (perhaps this is still the cause). I'm using this command: echo -e "\nT:\OhHello" | iconv -f asci...

Re: Forum log-in not secure

I remember that a while ago, a lot was made of XYplorer installation executable not being signed and that was corrected. However, I wonder how many people know that this forum log-in is not done in a secure manner and their username and password are sent in clear text. The main forum page is not lo...

Re: New preview engine in v. 16.10.0200

Any chance we will be able to change the default player for the previews to something else like VLC? I really hate WMP :(

Display Random Files

I would like to click a button or catalog item to display a certain amount of random files (5,10, or 20) in the current directory. Each time its clicked it shows a new random set of files. Is this possible to do?

Re: Low Quality Thumbs for High Res Images

This must be what is causing it. I took a look at my archive of images that are high quality with bad thumbnails and they are all 24 bit depth.

Re: Mark Watched Videos

Found it. Set this as a PFA. For instance, I'm setting this PFA to intercept JPG (remember to enable TAGs column so you can see the count): jpg> $label = report("{Tags}", "<curitem>"); if($label == "") { tag "1", , 1, 1; } elseif($label != "") { $label++; tag "$label", , 1, 1; }; run """<curitem>""...

Mark Watched Videos

Is it possible to mark videos/files that have been opened in xyplorer?

Similar to xmbc or similar htpc software, I would like to automatically mark watched videos in a series to know which is the latest unwatched.
