      rhombus), "Visual Filter" (blue/white rhombus), "Open Run" (yellow/green 
      rhombus), and "Open With" (now blue/red/white rhombus) are "hand-drawn"

    + Added tweak to default all search results to be initially sorted by Path.      
        FindSortByPath=1
      Notes:
      - Of course, old search results (refresh a search; startup on a search; 
        tab switch) keep their last order and are not affected by this tweak.
      - The resulting sort order will be exactily like the Branch View one 
        when "Configuration | Find and Filter | Find Files & Branch View | 
        Branch View | Default to tree-like sort order" is ticked.

v21.90.0001 - 2021-06-09 14:41
    + Sorting Search Results: Now the context menu of the Search Information Bar 
      features a toggle "Always Sort Search Results This Way". Tick it to 
      initially sort all coming searches just like the list is sorted now. 
      Untick it to reset the feature and use whatever sort order the list is in 
      before each search.
      - Note that column, direction and even secondary sorting is supported.
      - FYI, the value is stored in key "FindSorting".
      - To show the Search Information Bar tick this: Configuration | Find and 
        Filter | Find Files & Branch View | Find Files | Show search information 
        in list.
    - Tweak FindSortByPath: Replaced by the much more powerful toggle "Always 
      Sort Search Results This Way".
    + Configuration | General | Refresh, Icons, History | Icons | Show icon 
      overlays: Added suboption "In tree as well". The idea of this refined 
      control is that polling the icon overlays can take a long time for a large 
      tree and slow down startup considerably. But you might need those overlays 
      only for the list. So now you can tick off the tree.

    ! Ignore diacritics: Wouldn't handle Persian character "Yeh with 2 dots". 
      Fixed.
    ! Live Filter Box: This fix in v21.70.0002 - 2021-04-15 19:09 lead to a 
      wrong alignment when the LFB was next to the Address Bar:
        With larger font sizes there could emerge some graphical artifacts (aka 
        pixel dirt) in the Live Filter Box. Fixed.
      Removed the fix. Currently have no other one. Or maybe I do:
    * Status Bar: Increased the height by 2 pixels. Gives a more relaxed look 
      and en passant solves the LFB issue here above.

    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Dual Pane: Added option "Sync Browse 
      auto-creates any missing folders". Does what it says without further 
      questions. When you dive into a folder that does not exist in the other 
      location it will be created as an empty folder and then you go into it.
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Dual Pane | Tab key: Had a nonsense 
      tooltip ("Used e.g. in "Copy Here" operations."). Removed.
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Dual Pane | Resizing the window: Had a 
      nonsense tooltip ("Used e.g. in "Copy Here" operations."). Removed.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.90.0004 - 2021-06-11 15:00
    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs: Added option "Minimum / Maximum tab 
      width in pixels (0 = use defaults)" offering two input boxes. This 
      replaces the old option "Maximum tab width in pixels (0 = use all space)".
      So the news is that you can now define a minimum width for tabs 
      (previously only possible via tweak TabWidthMin).
      Notes:
      - The defaults are: Minimum = 25, Maximum = unlimited.
      - While it says "pixels" the value is auto-adjusted to the screen scaling. 
        E.g. on 150% a value of 80 will be internally converted to 120 pixels.
      - The hard minimum value for both fields is internally set to 25. You 
        cannot go below that. This is internally validated and silently 
        corrected if necessary.
      - Of course, the min value cannot be bigger than the max value. This is 
        internally validated and silently corrected if necessary.
      - If you set the same value to both fields the tabs will be totally fixed 
        to that size.
      - Named tabs will not shrink below the space needed to show the full name. 
        FYI, this is a rule from v7.90.0251 - 2009-05-06 11:39, and currently I 
        wonder if it is still a good rule...
    - Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs: Removed option "Maximum tab width 
      in pixels (0 = use all space)".
    * Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Dual Pane: Re-organized the page and 
      renamed some options:
        Sync Select honors relative paths             -> Sync Select | Honor relative paths
        Sync Browse auto-creates any missing folders  -> Sync Browse | Auto-create any missing folders
    + Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Dual Pane: Added an option that was only 
      available in the context menu of the "Sync Browse" toolbar button before 
      (as "Auto-Sync Select"): Auto-select matching items. Tick it to 
      auto-select any matching item in the other pane when you select an item in 
      this pane.
    * Toolbar | Sync Browse | Context Menu: Renamed "Auto-Sync Select" to 
      "Auto-Select Matching Items".
    + Toolbar | Sync Browse | Context Menu: Added option "Auto-Create Any 
      Missing Folders".
    * INI file: Changed key "AutoSyncSelect" to "SyncBrowseAutoSelectMatches" 
      (consistency obsession). Your previous setting goes to Nirvana, sorry.

    ! Tab Bar: A Hover Box triggered from a Tab Bar icon would not disappear 
      when moving the mouse to the adjacent New Tab or Tab List button or over 
      the empty part of the Tab Bar. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Adaptive name 
      column width: The situation was not always fully restored as it should 
      across tab switches and sessions, sometimes leading to super-wide Name 
      columns. Fixed.
    ! Menu View | Sort By | Random Order: Did reshuffle when you created a new 
      item in a randomized list. Fixed. Now new items are appended to the bottom 
      of a randomized list.
