How about a Queued Operations menu, then?

Re: History vs. Recent Locations

As I understand it, History has other options that let you keep a separate history for each tab, remember selections and sort order, omit duplicates, in addition to the back/forward traversal. Whereas, Recent Locations is a just global tracking of every location you visit, across all tabs, and doesn...

And you would not want to feed it from the Background Jobs queue as well?

Re: Want: Copy To List

Well, others here will have to weigh in if they care, but I think it's probably something that should just be scripted in a foreach loop instead of encumbering the API. The only reason I sometimes resort to doing this kind of thing outside of XY in a unix shell (using cygwin on the PC) is simply bec...

Re: Support for APE audio format

My .02 for what those pennies are or aren't worth... .ogg, .shn, and .ape are a shadow of their former popularity, the leader in compression formats amongst the trading communities appears now clearly to be FLAC (as it should be). Well, it probably depends on the community and type of music, and FL...

Re: How to persist visual filter BUT only for a particular TAB?

Another observation, which may or may not be a feature: I do a search. Then I select a particular file in the results and Go to Focused Item which takes me into a corresponding locked home zone tab that has a persistent filter in effect. The filter is automatically turned off in that situation. I ca...

Re: Want: Copy To List

But why? The most common use case is an album or boxed set parent folder containing many CD subfolders into which I want to copy an image file of the album cover so I can see it when playing the individual CDs. Another situation involves copying the same status marker or info file of some sort into...

Re: Want: Copy To List

I very often copy the same single file to each of several subfolders, with the latter capable of being specified with a wildcard expression. So the copyto() function does not accept a wildcard [location] or even a way to pickup selected target locations from the list? When I have a lot of these subf...

Re: Support for APE audio format

It's a lot of work to look up a file format, understand it (and all its variations), parse it. Currently I have no desire for this. I understand, and I certainly consider it outside the scope of XY to support every audible format out there. [Just like XY shouldn't have to support every previewable ...

Re: Is there a keyboard shortcut to clear the Live Filter box, w/o changing focus?

What about a new command "Toggle Live Filter" in menu View | Tab? If filter is ON: - clear the Live Filter Box - keep it visible - keep focus where it is If filter is OFF: - activate the last filter - show the Live Filter Box if it's not shown - keep focus where it is That definitely works for me. ...

Re: Support for APE audio format

I'm not familiar with the experience with audio community folks, but given your bit rate formula -- is the obstacle with APE and other formats knowing the API to determine the elapsed time in seconds?

Re: Could focus return to main window after file operation popups?

Hmm, just tried it now in both my configuration and /fresh and it's working normally. But it definitely doesn't always do this. I'll put together a /fresh protocol when I can determine the conditions. I suspect it could be happening when there's a long-running backgrounded file operation going on an...

Very good to know. I will routinely do that and post the portion of the log around the time I have the problem. What text is in the normal message in the log when XY receives a file notification from Windows?

Re: How to persist visual filter BUT only for a particular TAB?

Using v17.50.0208 with the fix: not sure if this is an intended feature or not but when you are in tab with a persisted visual filter, and click a second time on the current folder node in the breadcrumb bar, the filter is turned off.

Re: xyplorer hangs opening folder with lots of files

@ckp, Also, using the beta that fixes your particular problem is helpful for both you and Don to identify any remaining issues or side-effects now, rather than later in a released version. Especially with your case, very few other users, if any, are likely to be dealing with that situation, so it's ...
