    * Menu View | Tab: Revised the functionality of the New Tab and Clone Tab 
      commands:
      - New Tab:
        - Keeps the location of the current tab unless configured otherwise in 
          Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | New tab path.
          So, no more "This PC". If you want start each new tab in This PC: Use

        - If in Find mode it switches to Browse mode.
        - All filters are removed.
        - All Homes are removed.
      - Clone Tab:
        - Completely clones the current tab, including all names, modes, 
          filters, home, locked states, colors etc. ... just everything.
    + Custom Event Actions (CEA): Separated Tree and List events, so the the 
      recently added tweaks doubled in number and changed their names:

    + Scripting got a new command.
      Name: ShowStatus
      Action: Controls whether certain commands show a statusbar message.

        showstatus 0; tag 4; echo "no status"; showstatus; tag 3; echo "status";
    * Contents64.exe: Renamed the file to "XY64contents.exe" (you see, I got 
      into branding my files), and recompiled it with a new icon.
    * ContextMenu64.exe: Renamed the file to "XY64ctxmenu.exe". New icon and 
      compilation later...

    + Pssst. If you want to customize the separator between date and time in the 
      date columns in the file list, you can do it:
        dts "  "; 
        dts " | ";
        dts; //back to default (" ")

    * Action Log: Backup and Sync operations are now added to the Action Log 
      (both as "Backup"). You cannot undo them (it would be meaningless) but you 
      have them nicely logged now so you can look up what you have done and when.

    + Buttons In Catalog: Now you can get the original right-click menu of 
      Toolbar buttons when you right-click the icon of a BIC (Button In 
      Catalog). Very powerful!
      For the normal Catalog Item right-click menu you right-click the caption, 
      or you hold CTRL while right-clicking the icon.
    ! Quick Find Files: The small Find Files button was shown on some dialogs 
      where it did not belong. Fixed.

      CTB are now shown in the Catalog.
    + Buttons In Catalog: Now even patched toolbar images are supported.

Change Log for the latest XYplorer BETA version:

Code: Select all

v21.10.0018 - 2020-09-26 16:17
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles: Added option "Autofit 
      columns". Tick it to soften the width of the Name column when resizing the 
      list so that all other columns keep their width and visibility. Very 
      useful, I made it the factory default.
      Applies to views with columns only (Details and Details with Thumbnails).
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles: Added field "Autofit columns 
      minimum width" where you can specify the minimum width (in pixels) for the 
      Name column when "Autofit columns" is enabled and you shrink the width of 
      the list. Factory default: 100 pixels.
    + Buttons In Catalog: The disabled state of buttons is now shown (if they 
      have one), also the pressed state images (if there are any), and even any 
      patched toolbar images.
      Magically the buttons reflect image changes in real time.
    * Portable File Associations: This term will not be used anymore within the 
      app. Instead the term "Custom File Associations" is used consistently. Of 
      course, nothing is taken away from the portability.
    * Portable File Icons: This term will not be used anymore within the app. 
      Instead the term "Custom File Icons" is used consistently. Of course, 
      nothing is taken away from the portability.
    * Catalog: Removed the default "New Item" caption when adding a new item.
    * Updated the file "CatalogDefault.dat", which is part of the download 
      package. It had a bug and it could use some of the new buttons.

    + Menu Tools | Customize File Associations...: Now the whole feature can be 
      disabled. It's done right in the "Customize File Associations" dialog 
      using a new button in the bottom toolbar. You'll find it...
    + Menu Tools | Customize File Associations...: Now the command has a default 
      keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+F9.
    * Menu Tools | Customize Toolbar...: Moved the command two positions down.
    ! Autofit Columns: Wrong when startup focus was not on list. Fixed.

v21.10.0020 - 2020-09-27 16:39
    * Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Autofit columns: Renamed it 
      to "Flexible name column width".
      Also changed the name of the INI key, so on upgrading from yesterday you 
      might lose your setting here.
    * Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Autofit columns minimum 
      width: Renamed it to "Name column minimum width".
      Now it defaults to 175.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Flexible name column width: 
      Fixed a glitch when "Name column minimum width" was set to 0.
    + Configuration | General | Sort and Rename | Rename | Hide extensions from 
      rename edit box: I noted that more often than I thought I needed a quick 
      way to modify the extension of a file. So I added a way to do it: When the 
      rename box is open, and nothing is selected, and the cursor is at the 
      right end, then you can press the right arrow key to "move" the extension 
      into the rename box.
      So, to quickly rename the extension while "Hide extensions from rename 
      edit box" is enabled you press the sequence F2 - Right - Right.
    + Address Bar: The dropdown match list now draws not only from the Address 
      Bar's own MRU but also from the global MRU (aka Recent Locations).
      There's a small price (or maybe it's a plus) to pay for this: The dropdown 
      list is not sorted chronologically anymore but alphabetically.
    * Toolbar | Show Folder Sizes / Calculate Folder Sizes: Changed the icon 
      from pizza to dumbbell. This software is fitness oriented.
    ! Configuration: Certain extremely wide fonts (e.g. Segoe Script) broke the 
      layout in some places. Fixed.
    ! Drag Status Box: Was not shown for items dragged over droppable Catalog 
      items. Fixed.

    + Tools | Customize File Icons...: Now you can enable/disable the feature 
      right in that dialog (small toolbar at the bottom).
    * Toolbar | Enable Custom File Icons: New Icon. Was bored by the old one.
    * Toolbar | Go to Last Target: New Icon. Was annoyed by the old one. I case 
      you wonder: It's a sports tactics board and it shows the way to the goal.
    % Toolbar: Improved the dumbbell icon for light and dark mode.
    ! Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Flexible name column width: 
      Width would jump up to minimum width when smaller. Fixed. Still not 
      perfect though. Needs more thinking.
