Re: Add "wait" to let Status Bar update

My videos take about 10 sec each to verify. I didn't want to spend more time experimenting on sets of them, and the 0.1 sec additional per file doesn't matter in this case. I suggest adding a tip on this subject to the Help on SC 'status'. (I can't now find the thread for Help improvement suggestion...

Add "wait" to let Status Bar update

Working on a script that steps through video files and calls ffmpeg to check some characteristics of each. I have a "status" command to show the current video filename in the Status Bar. However, after several videos this status display would freeze, even though the script continued to work through ...

Re: To sort audio lengths use "Property" not "Special Property"

Wait, more info... seems like the issue with Special Properties | Length only happens at folder changes within Branch View, and not always then. The first clip below shows the problem, using a Special Properties | Length column. The second clip shows the regular Properties | Length results. (Note th...

To sort audio lengths use "Property" not "Special Property"

I have a bunch of MP3 files in a folder. In that list pane I right-click on the column bar and select "Add Column". That creates a new one called "Undefined". Then via right-click I can assign it using either "Select Property" or "Select Special Property". If I choose "Select Special Property | Leng...

Re: Session Manager [v6.50]

Need to toss in a big thanks here for Session Manager. My current project has me using it several times a day to set up an string of tabs in both list panes, and it's saved me much dogwork. Great to have.

Tab List - allow delete

Working within locked folders incidentally creates many tabs that aren't needed later. XY will reduce all the tab sizes but reaches a limit. With my Config settings, the oldest ones get pushed off the right side of list pane and in some cases can't be seen again without deleting newer tabs. Currentl...

Re: Scroll selected folder to top fails w LiveFilter

RESOLVED at least for me, now. I had at some point set the tweak "GoUpIsBack" to 1. When I set this to 0, my original problem above was cured. Up arrow and Backspace worked fine, leaving the previously-selected (in this case parent) folder in view even after LiveFilter navigation. A red herring was ...

Scroll selected folder to top fails w LiveFilter

I have about 400 folders on an external drive and really need the folders I'm working on to stay in view. So I checkmark "scroll selected folder to the top". I use LiveFilter to find one in the middle ~200. I double click on that folder to open it. I press Backspace or click on up-arrow and the list...

List right-click menu - open shortcut in other pane

Often I have a folder shortcut in one pane that I'd like to follow / open in the other pane. Having this option on the right-click menu would be very helpful.

Custom copy - make the text extractable

Trying to write an AutoIt script to find and tile my Custom Copy windows, I found that none of the dialog text in those windows can be accessed by the standard AI / Windows commands. It would be useful if at least the source and destination strings (that appear near the top) were "readable" in this ...

Custom copy - shrink the dialog window

I'm running 5-6 half-hour CC jobs simultaneously. Stacking the windows to be visible but out of the way is hard because they are so "fat". A lot of space - especially vertical - could be reclaimed without making them hard to read.
