German short for März instead of Mar.

Also seen in XYHash-18.80.0000.txt and XYHash-18.90.0000.txt, I can't say anything about other versions since I only kept the latest ones.

Yep, always wanted to do this. Thanks for the kick.

BTW, I added a flag to SC formatdate() to achieve this via scripting (the Hash files are made by an XY script).
This should work in every locale (from next beta); I tested it only for German though:

Code: Select all

echo formatdate("13.03.2018", "dd-mmm-yyyy", 4:=4); //date with English short month: 13-Mar-2018

in the help:

1. Tabbed Browsing -> Default tab -> (a green icon overlay )
maybe meant to be: overlay)

2. Catalog -> Configuring the Catalog -> move catalog items up and down (also between categories!) be dragging them to their new position
maybe meant to be: by dragging

3. Mouse Down Blow Up -> Use whole screen -> it will work as "Shrink to fit screen"..
maybe meant to be: screen".
or maybe meant to be: screen"...

added later:

4. Catalog -> What is it? A very cool alternative to the Tree! -> Side by side with  locations
maybe meant to be: with locations

I noticed a few minor things if you are interested, (all from v18.80 PDF) On page 513 of the PDF under formatlist() section:
the filter returns all non-matching items
there is a weird gap (I think it is a tab) as shown in this screenshot:
clip-26_04_18_15.52.png
clip-26_04_18_15.52.png (2.59 KiB) Viewed 1310 times
There is also the same gap on page 510:
"locale.<tab?> However,"

on page 523 notice the double closing quotes:
[quote]"TextMetrics"", text
"TargetItems"", [separator=CRLF][/quote]

on page 273:
displayed as menu item caption
maybe could be "..the menu item caption". On page 566:
Collisions a re avoided by an auto-appended
there is an unwanted space in "are".

Sorry I only noticed afterwards I was using an old version of the PDF and some things have been fixed already.

i thought it is better if i collect at least several typos (from the XYplorer.chm) and only then post them all here at once
but it turned out that this typo was already reported and fixed:
scripting commands reference > new() > Cloning the current item > Collisions a re avoided by an auto-appended number

so i only have 1 typo to report this time:
Ghost Filter > line 3 > You can any number of patterns, one per line
maybe meant to be: You can enter any number

Here are a few things I noticed recently, all from v18.90 PDF. On page 10 ContextMenu64.exe is missing from the list of installed files, maybe it should be on this list? On page 359,
The | has priority of over ;
I don't think "of" is necessary. On page 499:
like clicking X-xlose
maybe could be "...X-close". On page 638, under swapnames() usage:
items selected on List
could be "...selected in the List".
