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

This is actually a pretty beautiful feature, and I'm glad it's implemented beyond just branch view. It also works by first switching to branch view, and then searching with "/limitperdir=1". It's automatically changed to "/limitperdir=1 /:flat" (where lpd is its shortcut). That just saved me about a...

Re: XY locked until drag & drop target app is done processin

Okay :(

Then I need the ability to open a folder (selected folders?) in Windows Explorer then. Can this be added to

"Configuration > Mouse, Menus, Safety > Custom items in shell context menu"

? Perhaps there's a scripting solution.

Display *1st* file in each folder in branch view? [GRANTED]

I have 71 folders containing mp3s, and I want to append " - [bitrate]k mp3" to the end of each folder's name. All mp3s in each folder have the same bit-rate, so I only need to see the first.

Is it possible to have branch view only show the first file in each folder?

Re: How can I Add an App to the Toolbar

Use the "run" scripting command. Example:

Code: Select all

:: run 'winzip32";
Example button code:

Code: Select all

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.
