Scripting cmd for "purpose" locking w/ tab & bkgd colors

I find myself using the two panes as I do in FTP applications: The left pane is the source, the right is the destination, where things need to be copied (never moved). An example is a song I'm mixing. The final rendered mp3 is created in a directory under M:\audio\reaper\... and is always duplicated...

Re: New user: 10 Feature Requests...

1. Ok. Open new Tab, let's say it opens C:/, Now click on a Bkmk or Drive Buttons and XY opens these in current Tab thereby losing current location. Should open in New Tab when L-clicked. But Should be optional. Interesting idea. 11. One more FR. Is it possible to have XY set as default explorer an...

Re: Only display 1st file in each folder in branch view?

A workaround to highlight the folders that haven't been renamed: Before you start, add "- mp3" (2 spaces) to the end of each folder. Then Ctrl+M (selection filter) to select all folders with that postfix (search term "- mp3"). Whichever ones the bit rate has been added to won't be selected.

Re: Gracefully handling bad chars in zip-item names

I can only guess it was created on a non-PC, where colons are valid filename characters. You say you're remote controlling out to something. It must be built-in Windows thing, as I only have 7-Zip installed. I'm curious where the progress dialog (displayed while the zip is being created) comes from....

Re: Gracefully handling bad chars in zip-item names

When you use 7-Zip's Extract command, it automatically changes colons to underscores. When you select the files and drag them out, the dialog *says* it's working, but no files end up in the target directory. I'm guessing they successfully uncompress to some temp directory, but then can't be copied. ...

Gracefully handling bad chars in zip-item names

If an item in a zip file has a bad character in it, such as a colon, attempting to unzip it with right-click (XY-context menu) > Zip > Extract here results in this error http://i.imgur.com/PKO03Zx.jpg I wish I could just manually fix it in a prompt, right then and there. Thinking it a bit further, i...

How to display the uncompressed size of zips? Custom col?

I have a directory of 71 folders and 71 zip files created from them. I need to confirm that all these folders are indeed properly zipped, by comparing the folder sizes against the *uncompressed* size of (the contents within) each zip file. Currently the "size" column for a zip file is its compressed...

Asynchronous calls to zip_add?

I'm creating multiple zip files with lots of calls to zip_add(). Is there a way to prevent the next one from being called until the current one has completed? It's spawning up to four simultaneous processes, which I'd like to prevent.

Re: Only display 1st file in each folder in branch view?

Here's a related question:

How do I eliminate all folders from this branch view that contain the " - [bitratenum] mp3" postfix? (where the top-most folder contains that postfix)

Something like

Code: Select all

 /limitperdir=1 /:flat:> \d+ mp3$ /x
but that doesn't work.
