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 ...

Could Recent Operations menu also show queued paths & more entries?

I frequently move stuff around my various drives in multiple steps, backgrounded and queued, but often to just one or two target locations (that vary over time). Recent Operations is ideal and human error-free for carrying out these moves, but too often, I don't have the target location in the menu ...

Could focus return to main window after file operation popups?

I am in the List moving down and inspecting file by file, choosing one or more files at a time and deleting them. I always have and want delete confirmation enabled, so I get the popup before each delete is attempted. But when the popup is dismissed, focus is left outside of the XYplorer main window...

Re: Quick Search: Why doesn't {:Audio} find my audio files?

I consider myself a power user, yet find it cumbersome to locate the appropriate syntax when I need it, even with the help file. Being a power user shouldn't mean having to remember the details of syntax, just a sense of the scope and depth of capabilities and the willingness to take advantage of th...

Re: Quick Search: Why doesn't {:Audio} find my audio files?

Different interfaces. Don't see a reason why the GUI should be able to generate QS syntax... Apart from that: A script could do this already (translate all GUI find attributes into QS syntax). Actually I think I'll do this for myself... For clarity and consistency - a unified search mechanism -- eq...

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

What about Shift-ESC for clearing the Live Filter Box (while focus is in the list), but still keeping it visible?

You can simply hover your mouse over the name, and the entire name will be revealed in a tooltip.
