Example button code:

XY locked until drag & drop target app is done processing

Drag ten mp3 files from XY into Audacity . Each file is imported one at a time. The can take a while, depending on file sizes. I would expect to be able to do stuff in XY as soon as the mouse button is let go of. But XY is completely frozen until Audacity has finished importing all the files. Is the...

Re: Can default 64-bit items be added to XY's context menu?

Where do these sub-commands come from? They're just conveniences built into XY? Can these sub-items be customized or hooked directly into 7-Zip's context menu?

This is 2/3 of what I want, though, so thanks a lot.

Can default 64-bit items be added to XY's context menu?

I'm finding myself having to switch the Configuration > Shell integration > Show the 64-bit context menu on and off repeatedly, when I need to create/explode a lot of zips, and then when I'm done. There's no command I am aware of to toggle this setting (to which I can bind a key). Is there any way t...

Re: to much to comprehend

What I did was read through much of the documentation, and *all* of the release notes on the website. Start with 7.00 , read it, click on the 7.1 tab and read *it*, and keep going higher and higher until you reach the current version (14.8 something). There are a *lot* of them, and each is pretty in...

Re: Drag and drop folders, but filter files therein?

(How do I see folders when filtering? "Apply to files only (Find Files & Branch View - Visual Filters)" is checked, but I don't see them.)

Drag and drop folders, but filter files therein?

My camera has these two folders: -100_PANA -101_PANA each containing both jpg-s and mov-s. On my computer, I have images/ - -100_PANA - -101_PANA video/ - -100_PANA - -101_PANA What I'd like to do is drag-copy the folders from the camera to each place, but when I drag to "images", it only copies jpg...

Re: How to consolidate 3 backupto-s, or suppress confirm dlg

It seems logical, if you request an in-progress dialog, but not a summary dialog, that the in-progress dialog should disappear when done.

Re: Alternatives to moving files and opening new tabs

Tried it both ways. It doesn't work if a folder-shortcut is selected, whether selected via Open With, or via a key command to an item in the User script menu. The only two choices given, though, are the two "Open folders in new tab" items. +mp3>C:\applications\audio\Audacity\audacity.exe +bat,html,s...

Re: How to consolidate 3 backupto-s, or suppress confirm dlg

Actually, what I'm trying to do doesn't seem to be possible :( What I want is for the in-progress dialog to display, and then automatically close when it's done. It seems only these options are possible: - in-progress dialog, which stays open - no in-progress dialog, but a summary dialog when it's d...

Darn. I thought I understood the meaning of the other column...which contradicts with the fact that I posted this question at all. Good to know about the "|".

Re: Alternatives to moving files and opening new tabs

I've been running it via the User scripting menu. Only actual folders work that way.

I'll consider moving it to Open With...
