Alternatives to moving files and opening new tabs

I'm sort of blown away by XYplorer so far. Here are the first feature requests that come to mind: I wish there were more flexible ways of moving items, and for creating new tabs in either pane. I'd like to be able to drag a folder or file to a breadcrumb bar item, or to a sub-item under one of its t...

Re: Text Editors

I used TextPad for fifteen years, and just switched over to Sublime Text 3. I wrote a long blog post about it.

How to stop Find files "Search results" tab auto-refreshing?

I'm doing a "Find files" search, and a new "Search results" tab is opened.

Then I switch to another tab, and go back to it, and the search is rerun.

How do I stop this auto-refreshing? I want the already-existing results to stay there.

Re: Dupes column not showing after a "Find Dupes" search.

Yes. Of course. I'm looking for duplicates of audio files that are in the same directory (or potentially a sub-directory), having the same name, except with perhaps "(1)" or "(2)" appended. So they'll have exactly the same content, and the same *beginning* name text. But they'll have been downloaded...

Re: Cyber Monday 2014 Promotion

I'm going to purchase with the discount, ask for a refund, and then re-send you half the difference.

I'm balancing the awesomeness of my first impression, with our current strapped-for-cashness.

Re: Cyber Monday 2014 Promotion

So do I purchase it with this link and then ask for a refund for the original full-price purchase?

Re: Dupes column not showing after a "Find Dupes" search.

Oh. Okay. I right clicked on the Dupes tab, it's blue now, and I made the rest of the tabs non-blue. I ran it again, and now there are no results. I tried different combinations of "Applied filters" (whose checkmarks make the corresponding tabs blue), but there are no results no matter what. Next st...

Re: Dupes column not showing after a "Find Dupes" search.

I don't understand. I clicked on [Find now] in the "Find Files > Dupes" panel, and the "Search results" tab popped open. What else do I need to do?

Re: Cyber Monday 2014 Promotion

Tip: It's still active here (last day definitely): http://sites.fastspring.com/xyplorer/product/xyplorerlifetimelicensepro I don't see anything but a normal license price on that page, and anyway, I purchased my full-price license late last night. I appreciate the gesture. http://i.imgur.com/4FQBep...

Dupes column not showing after a "Find Dupes" search.

I'm running the find-dupes search, but no Dupes column is being displayed. I looked it up in help, and it seems like this column should just appear (it's not optional or turn-off-able). It's not one of the right-click-to-show-a-column items, either. What am I missing? http://i.imgur.com/WkFvSfP.jpg

Re: What's the opposite of the "loadsearch" scripting comman

Excellent. Thank you.

How long does it usually take betas to reach release status?

I discovered and installed XYplorer yesterday morning, combed through every release-notes web page on your site, and purchased a lifetime license last night.

Really impressed.

What's the opposite of the "loadsearch" scripting command?

I see the "loadsearch" scripting command, but don't see it's opposite, to unload a search. If you click on a "Run combined search" catalog, it activates a search, but I don't see any way to close it, except to right click in the pane, and click "Remove Search". I also don't understand why, when no s...
