Re: +++ BREAKING NEWS: XY Switches Programming Language +++

Yes, XY is created on the dead language, but this is what I like about it. See Vim, Emacs, Unix utils, Windows command prompt. All this software is very old, sometimes isn't very easy to use, and have some limitations. However, this software have great advantage: it just works. It worked 20 years ag...

Re: An alternative way to jump to specific line (and something else)

Another implementation of similar idea could be seen in Vim. For example, * to move to line 15: 15G . It will be executed in the background. * to set/unset word wrap: :set wrap and :set wrap! . It will be executed using the command line. One difference between Vim and Visual Studio Code (or between ...

Re: An alternative way to jump to specific line (and something else)

Mine does "execute" whatever item (in the list pane) got selected through the live filter. Just tested with 20.30 and 20.90. On my system, it is Ctrl+Enter. Btw, it's a live filter box, not a command palette. Yeah, I see your point and irony, and I agree that it's not good to mess the things. To sh...

An alternative way to jump to specific line (and something else)

When you press : , your input should be redirected to Live Filter Box. Supplement : with line number, press Enter, and you will be moved thither. That is, :15<Enter> - to jump to line 15. (Notice that :line shouldn't activate the normal live filter.) Also notice the Enter behavior. When you press En...

Directory preview

Directory preview, the same way as it already implemented for zip archives. When you select a directory, its contents should be shown in the preview pane, as plain text. C:\preview_me contents: preview_me.png The preview itself: dir_preview.png Edit: Of course, it should be aaa\ , bbb\ , ccc\ . That...

Re: To assign a shortcut for a user button

Thanks, highend.

I can use either ::button "ctb5"; or ::load 'tab_management.xys';, but both these solutions has a drawback: the menu is shown near the mouse cursor. As I understand, it's not possible to show it near the button?

When I click this button, there is a selection of 5 different actions: * Reload the Current Tab * Duplicate the Current Tab * Close Other Tabs * Close Tabs to the Right * Reopen the Closed Tab Is t...

macOS-like truncation of filenames

On Windows, when the filename is too long, it truncates on the right side: a very long filename a_b_c_d_e_f_g_h_i_j_k_l_m_n_o_p_q_r_s_t_u_v_w_x_y_z.txt will be displayed as a_b_c_d_e_f_g_h_i_j... On macOS, it will be something like a_b_c_d...w_x_y_z.txt That is, the truncation performed in the middle.

Manual editing of tag.dat: paths required to be located alphabetically

I don't know is it really a bug or not. Anyway, I think it is better report then keep silent. 1. Create 3 dirs on your desktop: aaa, bbb, ccc. 2. Assign red label to aaa, green label to bbb, blue label to ccc. Also, assign some comments. 3. Close XY. 4. Open tag.dat and move bbb line above aaa. That...

Re: A bug with "cut out" files that were placed into the archive

@Borut, thank you testing. As I discovered, you are correct. In case the file was copied from C:\Test to C:\ or C:\Program Files, the bug doesn't appear . Try to copy it to C:\Users\YourName\Desktop and you will see that the bug does appear .\ So, the issue is still here. Tested with XY 20.80.0100, ...

When age circles are shown in "Name" column, they are located on the left side. When age circles are shown in "Modified" column, they are located on the right side. Personally, I would prefer the left side (or the option to customize it). The left side will be consistent with "Name" column and also ...
