    * Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Sort | Sort filenames by base: 
      Now it also affects the sort order in the Hover Box on folders and in 
      "Mouse Up Show Down" (Configuration | Preview | Mouse Down Blow Up | Mouse 
      Up on Folder Icons | Folder contents preview).
    * Tabs: Left- or right-clicking tabs or tab bar buttons while getting folder 
      sizes did nothing before getting folder sizes was completed. Now it stops 
      getting folder sizes at first click. When you click again you will be able 
      to do what you wanted to do.
    ! Layout: When dragging a splitter while holding ALT it would not work as 
      expected and the "dragging" mouse cursor would stick. Fixed.

    * File | To Clipboard: All commands in the submenu now apply to the selected 
      list items, no matter where the focus is. Exceptions: The focus is in the 
      folder tree, or there are no selections in the file list: then the 
      commands apply to the current path.
    ! Color Filters: Due to a recent bug a non-matching color filter could take 
      over everything under certain conditions. Fixed.

      the persistence of live filters when changing locations within the current

Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Direct Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
Download Page: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php
Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v21.20.0000 - 2020-10-15 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Rename Without Extensions. Now you can completely hide the extensions from 
      the inline rename box. It's relaxing to have them out of the way. Very 
      rarely you want to change the extension of a file anyway.
  +++ Set Archive Attribute. Now you can automatically set the archive attribute 
      on all recursive contents a renamed folder. This allows backup operations 
      by programs like XCOPY to decide what has to be backed up.
  +++ Swap Panes. Now you can swap the positions of both panes, including tabs, 
      breadcrumbs, and the pane dimensions. Good news for left-to-right draggers.
  +++ Buttons In Catalog. Now you can easily add toolbar buttons with their 
      icons, captions, and functionality to the Catalog. So the Catalog can 
      serve as a second, vertical toolbar.
  +++ Backup Logged. Backup and sync operations are now added to the action log. 
      You cannot undo them (that would be meaningless) but you have them nicely 
      logged now, so you can look up what you have done and when.
  +++ Autosize Name Column Right Margin. Isn't it annoying when on autosize the 
      name column springs to a width far beyond the window edge where you cannot 
      see it anyway, and where you're forced to horizontally scroll the list to 
      enable you to manually grab the column separator to make it smaller again? 
      Not anymore! Now you can define a minimal margin from the right window 
      edge. The name column will not go beyond this margin on autosize.
  +++ Adaptive Name Column Width. Tick it to soften the width of the name column 
      when resizing the list so that all other columns keep their width and 
      visibility. Try it, you will quickly get used to it.
  +++ Compilation Soundtrack. Compiled to the music of Norah Jones.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.20.0001 - 2020-10-17 14:36
    + Added tweak to get rid of the preselection when entering a rename box:
        RenameNoPreselect=1
      Currently it's implemented in a way that also skips preselection when 
      focusing a text box in various places of the interface.
    * Menu Go | Recent Locations...: Raised the number from 64 to 128. This 
      affects a number of features that use the Recent Locations (e.g. Go | 
      Hotlist..., toolbar buttons "Copy to Recent Locations", "Move to Recent 
      Locations", Configuration | General | Tree and List | List | Select last 
      used subfolder, and many more).
    ! Home Edition: The Dual Pane feature went AWOL since v21.10.0006. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

      rename edit box: Moving the extension into the rename box via right-arrow 
      did not work in thumbs mode (which uses multiline edit boxes). Fixed.

      Edition since v21.10.0006. Fixed.
      - Custom File Associations
      - Network Server Caching
    ! Tabs: Buttons "New Tab" and "Tab List" were not drawn on resolutions > 
      200%. Fixed.
    ! Status Bar: Since v21.10.0034 - 2020-10-04 13:43, with Show Folder Sizes 
      enabled, the folder sizes of selected folders were not shown anymore. Fixed.
