Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.40.0021 - 2019-09-30 19:23
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Colors: Added the option "Preserve 
      custom colors". Tick it to show any custom tab colors even when the tab is 
      selected and "Match selected tab with breadcrumb bar" is enabled.
      The factory default is off so the default situation is back to what was 
      before v20.30.0012 - 2019-08-31 13:39.
      Note: This raises the lost tweak TabMatchSelectedWithCrumbPrio to UI (but 
      logically reversed).
    ! Scripting | Step Dialog | Variable on Stack Dialog: The Variables list was 
      all black in Light Mode. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

:!: Note that BETA versions are work in progress and might contain fresh bugs. You have been warned.
It's a good idea to backup your complete XYplorer settings (menu File | Settings Special | Backup Application Data Folder...)
before running a new BETA version. This will also help in fixing any fresh bugs.

    * Mouse Down Blow Up: Right-Click MDBU preview (staying up) (incl. Quick 
      Audio Preview) will now come up instantly on the inactive pane (which is 
      activated at the same time). Before, a short click was eaten by the 
      activation and you needed a longer mousedown.
      You now can as well instantly switch between right-click stay-up MDBU 
      image previews across both panes. Was not possible before.

    * Audio Preview: Now Midi files (*.mid) are previewed through Quartz, not 
      MCI anymore.
    ! Quick Audio Preview: The duration of certain MP3 files was wrongly 
      calculated. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v20.40.0018 - 2019-09-27 13:39
    + Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: Added 3 
      checkboxes to let you control this setting individually for the Label, 
      Tags, and Comment column.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: On Full 
      Row Select there was a conflict about how to interpret a click, a 
      mousedown, and a mouse drag on those tag columns when "Toggle tags by 
      column click" was ON.
      Solution: From now on when the clicked item is already selected then 
      "Toggle tags by column click" is ignored on Full Row Select.
    * Configuration | Information | Tags | Toggle tags by column click: On Full 
      Row Select "Toggle tags by column click" is ignored when there is no last 
      Label, Tag, or Comment existing.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0148.

    * File Move: Now when trying to move items into their own folder the 
      message "Cannot move an item into its own folder." is shown only if true 
      for *all* of the items. Otherwise (only *some* of the items):
      - On Custom Move the non-movable items are silently skipped and all others 
        are moved.
      - On Shell Move (Use Custom Copy = OFF) it's all left to be handled by 
        Windows (you will probably be prompted what to do).
    * Miscellaneous | Go To | Open Folder in Other Pane: When the focused item 
      is not selected then the command will open the currently listed folder in 
      the other pane. Had stopped working like this from 20190226.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v20.40.0016 - 2019-09-25 13:12
    * Scripting: Removed that "A user function of the same name already exists!" 
      error message (added in v20.40.0006 - 2019-09-16 16:33). The script is not 
      terminated anymore, and the function in question is silently ignored (any 
      previous function of the same name is not overwritten by it).
      Reason: The error message was probably poorly implemented. It came up too 
      often and destroyed working user scripts.
    ! Live Filter Box: With "Persistent live filters" OFF and "Cache search 
      results" ON you would get (apparently) live-filtered search results when 
      going back to a search result tab but nothing in the interface told you 
      that a Live Filter was in action. Reason: You were just seeing the cached 
      snapshot of those live-filtered search results. Fixed: Under these 
      conditions the Live Filter will persist now.
    ! Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Live Filter 
      Box | Auto-select first match: Also did it when a Live Filter was removed. 
      Wrong. Fixed.
    ! SC load: Could get confused when loading a raw script since 20190919. 
      Fix #2.

Code: Select all

v20.40.0015 - 2019-09-24 18:18
    + SC swapnames enhanced: Now you can control via an argument whether to swap 
      names or bases.
      Syntax: swapnames [bases]
                bases   0 = swap names
                        1 = swap bases
                        missing or empty: honor the setting of RenameSwapBaseOnly
      Examples:
        swapnames 0;  //swap names
        swapnames 1;  //swap bases
    * Recent Location Pins: Now the current path pin is drawn fatter than the 
      others.
    ! Custom Copy: When you intra-volume-moved files to a folder that contained 
      subfolders but no files, then you got a wrong "Not enough space on the 
      target drive." warning when those files were larger than the drives 
      available free space. Fixed. Under these circumstances no additional free 
      space is needed so the warning was bogus.
    * XYcopy: Updated to 2.10.0147.
    ! Swap Bases: Undo/Redo would not work across changes of the tweak. Fixed. 
      Now "Swap Names" and "Swap Bases" are treated as different actions.
    ! SC load: Could get confused when loading a raw script since 20190919. 
      Fixed.

    + Toolbar: Added button "Random Order" using a "5 dot dice" graphic. Same 
      function as View | Sort By | Random Order.
      If you are feeling lucky and bored at the same time you can pimp your file 
      browsing experience by shuffling your image, sound, or video collections.

Code: Select all

v20.40.0013 - 2019-09-23 11:40
    + Added tweak to swap only the bases (= name without extension) when doing a 
      name swap (File | File Special | Swap Names):
        RenameSwapBaseOnly=1
      Not sure yet whether to leave it at that, or raise it to Configuration, or 
      make it a new menu command "Swap Bases".
    * Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename: Renamed "Exclude 
      extension on rename" to "Exclude file extension from initial selection". 
      The previous caption was crap.
    % Start Up: Tried to avoid a rare startup hang by reducing the access to 
      icon resources while loading.
    ! Visual Filters: In combination with Locked Tree, Locked Tabs, and implied 
      tab changes the Visual Filter of a tab could get lost when it should 
      stick. Fixed.
    ! File | File Special | Swap Names: Undo/Redo did not work when both files 
      were in different locations. Fixed.

    * Go | Go to Previous Location: Now any selections, the scroll position, and 
      the focused position are restored also when the jump remains in the 
      current tab. Before, this only happened when changing tabs.
    * Tools | Customize List | Hide Extensions: Now the selection rect is only 
      as wide as the base name without the extension. Before, the invisibe 
      extension was included in the rect.

v20.40.0011 - 2019-09-21 14:17
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Single click 
      on icon opens list items: Renamed it to "Single-click to open an item" 
      and made it work on the caption as well, so it's now identical to Explorer 
      in form and function. Quite a few users seems to like and use this 
      feature.
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability: Added "On the icon only". 
      Tick it to have the single-click work only on the icon, not on the 
      caption. That way you can still select an item by clicking the caption.
      So here you can restore the old behavior of the now obsolete "Single click 
      on icon opens list items".
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Select list 
      items on hover: Renamed it to "Point to select" and made it work on the 
      caption as well, so it's now identical to Explorer in form and function.
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability: Added "To the icon only". 
      Tick it to have "Point to select" work only on the icon, not on the 
      caption. That way you can still hover the caption without triggering 
      selection.
      So here you can restore the old behavior of the now obsolete "Select list 
      items on hover".
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Full name 
      column select: Now the effect is confined to left and middle click. That 
      way right-click on empty space will still trigger the empty space context 
      menu.
    * Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse | Show tooltips: 
      Moved the option down to the Usability section.
    ! Factory Default Colors: The pitch black enhancement from v20.40.0006 did 
      not work well on a fresh start. Fixed.

Code: Select all

v20.40.0010 - 2019-09-19 15:30
    + Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Mouse: Added option 
      "Full name column select". Tick it to select an item in the file list not 
      only by clicking the icon or caption but the whole Name column. Works in 
      views Details, Details with Thumbnails, List, and Small Icons.
      Also the right-click and dbl-click will do what they normally do only on 
      the caption.
      Note that drag-select still can be initiated in List and Small Icons views 
      when you start it in the empty area of the Name column of a non-selected 
      item.
      This raises tweak ListFullNameSelect (v9.40.0001 - 2010-08-04 13:25) to GUI.
    * Configuration: Some reorganization was necessary.
      - Created a new page "Safety Belts, Network".
      - Moved section "Safety Belts" from "Menus, Mouse, Safety" to the new "Safety Belts, Network".
      - Moved section "Network" from "Controls and More" to the new "Safety Belts, Network".
      - Renamed "Menus, Mouse, Safety" to "Menus, Mouse, Usability".
      - Renamed "Controls and More" to "Controls & More".
    ! Scripting: The fix (from v20.40.0005) concerning repeatedly loading the 
      same resource file needed some more polishing. Polished again.
    * MLS: Internally updated to version 8.116.
      > TRANSLATORS: Please wait until Reference_8.116.lng is uploaded.

    * Tools | Customize List | Size Column Format | Flexible / Flexible (Rounded
