Re: Most readable font

I use Noto Sans for everything. For Mono fonts I use JetBrains Mono for everything from text editing to coding.

Question: change hover color

Hi - i noticed as I hover my cursor over items in the tree and the list the rows change color - slightly. Is is possible to change this color? For me when using the zebra striping the non-striped rows don't change color, whilst the striped rows change to a very light gray.

Thanks!

And you're really using the UTF-16 version from viewtopic.php?p=172225#p172225
?

If yes, do your used fonts support all unicode characters?
Thanks - that worked. I didn't realize I needed this as I use English Windows.

Thank you!

Re: Session Manager [v6.50]

This is not a huge deal but maybe some can help. I am seeing the following for a saved layout:

[Single �� Autosave ��]

I am actually seeing this in some other apps UI's as well now and then. Are the � characters part of the design?

Can someone point me in the right direction to solve this?

Re: Screen Capture Util

Screenpresso https://www.screenpresso.com/ is free for even commercial use and has a cost for advanced functions. The workflow is very nice - screenshot and the image goes to the clipboard for immedaite pasting. The editor is great for annotations. The free version allows for HD video. I'm not affil...

Re: Screen Capture Util

Screenpresso. I even own a license of SnagIT - which is very expensive - and I still prefer Screenpresso.

Re: Best mouse

I’ve switched to the Logitech roller ball for non-gaming. It’s easy on my wrist and so far for office stuff there are no limitations. I wouldn’t try playing a video game with it though. I do recommend it though - give it a try! https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/mx-ergo-wireless-trackball-mouse

Column collapse and fill control

I would like to control which columns collapse and fill as you shrink the window. As I collapse the window the file name would shrink and the modified date would stay visible but other columns would disappear - or - collapse.

Something for the future version?

Columns based on directory

Hi - I am learning loads about XYplorer and I am loving it. I am really converting!

Question: can I define specific columns for specific directories? For instance - the Dimensions custom column I would like limited to Downloads and Pictures directories.

Thanks for your guidance!

Re: File Managers

I own Dopus and XY - both lifetime licenses. I used to use Dopus daily and poked around XY. Lately I have had to search many files and directories for files with text content inside. Dopus crashes right away. XY doesn’t crash. Same searches same files. I have a lot to learn with XY to use it to its ...

I apologize if this has been asked and answered, I did search and was unable to find what I was looking for. My reference is the competing product starts with a D. I want to use XYplorer, thi...

Re: 64bit version?

There is a file manager from a company in Australia that has been 64-bit for some time. Provides all of the XYPlorer functions that "I" require - I am sure there are plenty of scripting things other user's of XYplorer require that are not in the Australian software I am using. I have no choice - my ...

Re: What about library support in Windows 7 64 bit?

Not trying to feed the trolls or anything, but lack of support for libraries is a deal breaker for me. I keep all of my files in libraries. Directory Opus has had support for this for a year or more and its the only reason I am not using my XYplorer license. I know its "on the roadmap" - but serious...
