  +++ Toolbar | Bookmark Buttons: You can now drag and drop items onto the toolbar to 
      insert them as new bookmark buttons. Like in a browser.
      - The insertion hot zone is where two buttons touch (and at the beginning and end of 
        each button row). It is 10 (5) pixels wide.
      - An insertion marker and drag status box appear where the new button will be 
        placed.
      - If you drop more than one item, only the first one is used as the bookmark 
        location.
      - When you drop an item into a group element, such as {menus_all}, the group is 
        automatically converted to individual elements.
      - You can even drag items from other applications to the XYplorer toolbar.
    + Toolbar | Bookmark Buttons: Button locations can be one-line scripts, and now you 
      can drop items on them. Example of a bookmark location that is a drop-on script:
        echo <drop>;
    ! SC patchimage: Stopped working properly in v25.80.0310. Fixed.

      buttons with toolbar zoom > 1 and < 2, or extra large buttons with toolbar zoom >

    + Bookmark Buttons: Countless little enhancements and glitch fixes.
    + Bookmark Buttons: In addition to folders, they can also point to files. Clicking the 
      button opens the file. If the file is an executable, clicking the button will launch 
      the application. If you drag files to a button that points to an application, the 
      file opens with that application.
    ! Info Panel: When using wide fonts like Consolas, some labels would wrap to a second 
      line and write over the next label. Fixed.
    ! Breadcrumb Bars: Possible crash when pressing F3 while a dropdown is showing. Fixed.

v25.80.0301 - 2024-04-10 16:14
  +++ Toolbar: Added a new button type: Bookmark Buttons (BMB). They look and work like 
      bookmark buttons as you know them from browsers.
      - Currently you can have up to 32 bookmark buttons in the toolbar.
      - In addition to the location, they support a custom caption. If no caption is 
        specified, one is automatically generated from the location.
      - In addition to normal paths, special things like XYplorer native variables, 
        environment variables, paper folders and virtual folders are supported as locations.
      - The icon is automatically generated from the location.
      - In the toolbar, these buttons display an icon and a caption to the right of the icon.
      - Left-click the buttons to go to the specified location.
      - Right-clicking the buttons brings up a small menu from which you can edit the 
        caption and location.
      - You can drag and drop items onto the bookmark buttons (except for virtual folders).
      Okay, this is work in progress. Editing is not implemented yet. Instead, you get 5 
      hardcoded buttons that you can add to your toolbar via Customize Toolbar and play 
      with.
    + SC sync enhanced: New switch "b" allows the sync operation to run in the background 
      if background processing is generally enabled. By default, SC sync does not run in 
      the background because in a scripting context this can lead to problems with 
      asynchronicity and race conditions.
      Syntax: sync source, target, [copy_items], [on_collision], [delete_items], _
              [switches], [logfile], [filter]
        switches: lower case letters in any order
          b = Background operation allowed (needs global setting enabled to actually happen).
      Example:
        sync "E:\XY\code\", "T:\XY-code-<date yyyy>\<date yyyymmdd> (<xyver>)\", 1, 0, 0, "bckn";
    ! Status Bar: The progress indicator (blue white barber shop animation) for background 
      jobs was not visible or not updated under certain conditions. Fixed.

    + Droppable User Buttons | Dropdown Menu: Now, if you hold down CTRL when you click 
      the button, you can open menu items instead of going to them. This is only for 
      files, it makes no difference for folders.
      Consequently this is no longer true:
        - You can bypass the new feature by holding down CTRL while clicking the button. 
          This will take you to the Paper Folder just like when "Fire click on mousedown" is 
          not checked.
      Instead, this is the way to generate a button click that does not open the menu but 
      directly takes you to the Paper Folder:
        - Right-click the button and choose Click from the menu.

v25.80.0206 - 2024-04-08 14:33
    + Droppable User Buttons: Now "Fire click on mousedown" is functional when the button 
      points to a Paper Folder. Mousedown on the button will then pop a menu listing all 
      the existing items in the Paper Folder in the original order of the Paper Folder.
      So now you can have buttons that act as favorites hubs, where you just drop your 
      favorites on the buttons. Nice!
      Notes:
      - This is a possible definition of such a Droppable User Button. Add a User Button 
        to your toolbar and edit it like this:
          Name:                     "Drop Here" paper:DropStack
          Icon:                     :paper
          Fire click on mousedown:  Checked
      - Note that you can now even drop items onto a not-yet-existing Paper Folder this 
        way. It will be created on-the-drop.
      - You can bypass the new feature by holding down CTRL while clicking the button. 
        This will take you to the Paper Folder just like when "Fire click on mousedown" is 
        not checked.
        Or right-click the button and choose Click from the menu.
      - To remove items from the menu, just go to the Paper Folder and remove them from 
        the Paper Folder.
      - To change the order of the items in the menu, simply go to the Paper Folder and 
        change the order there using Manual Sorting. Or open the Paper Folder file in an 
        editor and do what you want.
    % Toolbar: The Extra Large Buttons (48x48) created by AI-assisted upscaling from the 
      24x24 versions were too bright and looked pale. This has now been fixed.
