Re: Support for Portable Devices

Okay, I finally had the chance to test XY with a portable device. I used 14.80.0226. I ran into some issues, and although this isn't strictly the latest beta, I didn't see anything in the change logs that seemed to cover what I ran across: 1. Deleting a file on the phone doesn't work for me. No erro...

Aha! Yes, that does it. That must have been added or had the default setting changed since my last version.

Thanks!

History not triggering by KB in the right place

When triggering the History by keyboard, it used to pop in a stable location in the upper left of the tree. But now it pops at the mouse cursor, which is disconcerting, non-predictable, and requires visual hunting for the new location every time. If this is by design, I would request that it be rest...

Excellent!

Just to clarify, when you say list your files, does that mean browse only? No copying/moving files to, from, or within?

Re: Search tab is not restoring the column layout

Well, the path column is about a half inch wide for me, so I had to re-adjust it and move it all the way to the right every time.

But, no problem. Now that the issue is resolved, I'm good. :)

Re: Search tab is not restoring the column layout

Oh absolutely, and that's what I was trying to obtain - which requires that that configuration option is disabled. My point is that if that option is enabled, isn't its purpose to use the current browse layout? Because either you want a search-specific layout (which makes the most sense, honestly), ...

Re: Search tab is not restoring the column layout

Good call - yes, that was ticked. And if I uncheck it, it behaves as expected. But that brings up a different question - if the purpose of that item is to use the column set in use before triggering the search, why does the columns in Find mode deviate at all from the browse mode set? For example, i...

Search tab is not restoring the column layout

When I configure a column layout in the Search tab, it isn't preserved. The next time I do a search, the default column layout is used - not my modified version. It used to be that I could set a column layout as the default for that view, but that's not the case anymore. I can save the layout to a f...

Re: Support for Non-Drive Devices

I'm thrilled to see this. I've been waiting a long time for this one. Using Windows Explorer whenever I have to interface with my phone or similar devices has been excruciating. :)

Built-in Zip/Unzip function - notice when complete

When using XY's built in Zip support, there is no way to know when the operation is complete.

I think it would be beneficial to add a status bar message to indicate when the operation is finished.

Type Ahead Find is incorrectly processing duplicate letters

There is a bug with the Type Ahead Find feature.


Take the following file list as an example:

Apple.txt
Continuum.txt
Foxtrot.txt
Locus.txt
November.txt



If you type "uu", what *should* be selected is Continuum.txt. However, the moment you type that second "u", the focus changes to Locus.txt.

Re: Space character trimming in Find Files

This isn't an argument about how to write search terms. Ordinarily, I use RegEx, so if you want unequivocal, it doesn't get more unequivocal than that. But for quick and common beginning-of-filename searches, the syntax I showed is the fastest, easiest, most natural way to do it. And it no longer wo...
