    % Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Autofit the width 
      of the Name column: Less horizontal scrollbar flicker when switching 
      locations, or toggling a filter, while this setting is enabled.
    ! SC paperfolder: The following line did not load item "<xy>" into the list 
      within PF "TEMP" if "Paper Folders | Explicit Save Only" was ticked and 
      certain other conditions were given:
        paperfolder("TEMP", <xy>);
      Fixed.
    ! Batch Rename: List was not fully refreshed since the optimizations in 
      v22.50.0105. Fixed.

v22.50.0106 - 2021-11-28 13:49
    + Added a tweak that makes heavy clipboard operations much faster.
      For example:
        ClipboardSkipShidFrom=1000
      Now when 1000 or more items are copied or cut to the clipboard a slow 
      part of the processing (the creation of the Shell IDList Array) is 
      skipped. For the usual copy-pasting of items this skipped part is not 
      necessary.
    % Edit menu: Opens much faster now when the clipboard is crowded with files.
    * Configuration | File Operations | Undo & Action Log | Clipboard | Log 
      clipboard contents and enable restore: Now a clipboard full of files is 
      only stored if it has 1000 or less files. Larger numbers are just too slow 
      and too heavy on memory.
    + Restore Previous Clipboard: Now there is some feedback in the status bar.

    % Custom Move: Intra-volume moves with large numbers of files are MUCH 
      faster now also to *non-empty* locations. Ha!
      Custom Copy and cross-volume moves are also faster now, but it won't be as 
      noticeable because byte copying is also done and takes its time.
    % Batch Rename: Doing a batch rename with an incremental suffix for many 
      files (> 1000), example pattern: file-<#0001>, is much faster now.
      How: The uniqueness of each new name is not checked anymore against the 
      already created new names when > 1000 items are renamed.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0181.

v22.50.0104 - 2021-11-27 17:16
    + Configuration | File Operations | File Operations | Background Processing: 
      XYcopy.exe only auto-closes if no final dialog is open when the job is 
      completed. On "Queue file operations" and with "Keep progress dialog open" 
      this can lead to many open dialogs that need to be OK-ed manually.
      Here is a new tweak (probably an UI setting soon) to ignore "Keep progress 
      dialog open" when it's a background operation:
        FopInBackgroundSkipFinalDialog=1      
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0180.
    ! File | Open Throw Away Clone: In a Read-Only instance the tags DB was 
      updated after moving tagged items if "Tags" was ticked under 
      "Configuration | General | Startup & Exit | Save Settings | Apply to...". 
      Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails Cache: This "fix" from v22.40.0233 - 2021-11-17 19:46 was not a 
      good idea:
        On exit without saving, the thumbnails cache was written 
        when there were unsaved thumbnails in memory. Not anymore.
      It resulted in *.dbits and *.dat2 file pairs becoming out of sync, 
      resulting in white thumbnails. Fixed by undoing the fix.
    ! Thumbnails: Found yet another way to meet white thumbnails. Fixed.

    * Enumerating Network Servers: Added debug logging. If anything goes wrong 
      you can check the log by running this through the address bar:
        dlog;
    * List: When listing servers the UNC slashes "\\" are no shown anymore in 
      the list. Also in the Hover Box status and in tab caption those slashes 
      are history.
    ! Find Files: When switching to a Find Files tab the Address Bar was not 
      updated to the new tree location when the focus was in the list. Fixed.
    ! Paper Folders In Tree: MUSD did not work. Fixed. (Silently improving PFIT, 
      currently only available on tweak PFAllowInTree=1.)
    ! Help | Various Information: Did not show a scrollbar when necessary due to 
      larger fonts. Fixed.

    * SC pathvirtual: Pretty much redesigned it from scratch.
      Syntax: pathvirtual([path], [flags])
        path: Full real or virtual path to an item.
              Defaults to the currently focused list item.
        flags:
          0: Returns the shortest virtual version of the path.
          1: Mind the visibility in the current tree.
             Returns the shortest virtual version of the path where the top node 
             is part of the current tree.
          2: Mind the current tree location.
             Returns the virtual version of the path that matches currently selected 
             tree location. If that location is a real path then the real path 
             version is returned.
      Remarks:
        - The return is always without trailing backslash.
        - Update your code. Flag 1 now has to be flag 2.
    * Updated the help file.

    * SC pathvirtual: It now always checks whether the top node of the shortest 
      possible virtual path (eg "Downloads") is currently visible in the folder 
      tree. Otherwise, if <user> is currently visible, the return will be a 
      subfolder of <user> (eg "Donald\Downloads"). Otherwise it will be a real

v22.40.0244 - 2021-11-22 10:19
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: PathReal
      Action: Returns the real path for a given path.
      Syntax: pathreal([path])
        path: Full real or virtual path to an item.
              Defaults to the currently focused list item.
      Remarks:
        - Some paths support to be referred to by a shortened path spec, the 
          so-called virtual path. In XYplorer these paths are Desktop, 
          Documents, Downloads, Links, and <user> (there might be more in the 
          future). So these paths have at least two ways to be referred to, 
          mostly even three because all but <user> are contained within <user>.
          For example:
            Virtual path 1: Downloads\Alice\
            Virtual path 2: Donald\Downloads\Alice\
            Real path:      C:\Users\Donald\Downloads\Alice\
        - The return is always without trailing backslash.
      Examples:
      - All return "C:\Users\Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg":
        echo pathreal("Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg");
        echo pathreal("Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg");
        echo pathreal("C:\Users\Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg");
    + Scripting got a new function.
      Name: PathVirtual
      Action: Returns the virtual path for a given path.
      Syntax: pathvirtual([path], [flags])
        path: Full real or virtual path to an item.
              Defaults to the currently focused list item.
        flags:
          1: Mind current tree location (see examples).
      Remarks:
        The return is always without trailing backslash.
      Examples:
      - All return "Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg":
          echo pathvirtual("Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg");
          echo pathvirtual("Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg");
          echo pathvirtual("C:\Users\Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg");
      - All return "Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg" if the current tree 
        location is anywhere in the "Donald" branch (else they return 
        "Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg"):
          echo pathvirtual("Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg", 1);
          echo pathvirtual("Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg", 1);
          echo pathvirtual("C:\Users\Donald\Downloads\Alice\6foot.jpg", 1);
    * Scripting: The message "Script terminated by ESC." now appears in the 
      status bar instead of in a message box.
    ! SC IndexAtPos: Did not return the correct tab index (instead it returned 
      an internal tab ID which is independent of the tab position). Fixed.

v22.40.0243 - 2021-11-21 18:45
    + SC itematpos enhanced: Added flag that will return a path in its virtual 
      form when it's currently displayed that way at that position in Tree, 
      List, Tabs, or Crumb.
      Syntax: itematpos([x], [y], [flags])
        flags:
          0: If x and y are passed, they are the position on screen.
          1: If x and y are passed, they are the position on XYplorer.
          2: Return virtual path if the item at that position is displayed
             that way, else always convert to real path.
      Remarks:
      - An example to show the difference and relation between virtual and real 
        path:
          Virtual path: Donald\Dropbox\Pics
          Real path:    C:\Users\Donald\Dropbox\Pics
    ! Locked Tree: Current location could get out of sync in the context of a
