Re: Unable to copy file using a script

The "|" char is not used to separate source and target of a copy operation, you should look at some examples in the help file. Okay, maybe I should have added: "|" is used to separate different source files but for your intended use you might want to change the command to "copyto" and then you stil...

Re: Show name length while renaming hides inline rename in tree

Just tested, same result as admin = no such problem.

Re: Custom copy failures

Ask has the slight disadvantage that the file operations pauses until you answered the question. Not ideal for big jobs you would like to run unattended. I liked the part of your request for it to do what it can and then deal with the remnants at the end. If this was possible with "Ask" that would b...

Re: XYplorer hangs with preview pane

Another option might be to remove the extensions of the files in question from the list of previewed formats in XY so it wouldn't even attempt to preview them.

Re: Opening Folders Issue

The contents of the folders might also be responsible especially if one contains a significant number of .exe or .dll files,
which would again trigger your AV software to work hard thus causing the delay.

Re: Script not producing expected results

The file loses focus when you click your catalog item thus copying the parent folder name to the clipboard. To prevent this, either: 1. Use Ctrl+Shift+P or 2. Create a User Button for it or 3. Make your catalog script a multiline script as follows: focus l; #102 Where the first command puts the focu...

Re: Crossing the software Rubicon

And on top of everything why would we care what Ubuntu does?
Until M$ drops support for 32bit applications I'm quite happy with XY staying the way it is.

Re: can I use fastcopy portable on xyplorer portable ?

If both XY and Fastcopy reside on the same disk you should be able to use the "?:/" syntax to point to the correct location for Fastcopy. Either add Fastcopy in the section for external copy handlers in configuration to be used with all custom copy operations or create your own scripts and add them ...

Re: size of pdf MDBU preview

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

Has the OP discovered "Hover Box" yet?
It seems to me this is about replicating the same behavior with a button.
