Code: Select all

  +++ Dark Mode: Had a little epiphany this morning. Now these controls are dark if XY is 
      dark (even if Windows itself is not in Dark Mode!):
      - Buttons
      - Scrollbars
:party: :party: :party: :tup: :tup: :tup: Yeah!

      "Show Menu": Let's you toggle the main menu.
      More slim buttons will follow. ....

I am new to XYplorer, but I want to thank point out that since v22.80.0124 - 2022-02-16 14:27, you can finally rename FAT32 and exFAT files properly!

Microsoft has broken this since ~2017 and has continued ruining File Explorer. Here's an example: If you got a file 'Person.JPG', and you simply wanted to rename it to 'Person.jpg', it wouldn't work. Basically, renaming any file with only a case change is ignored in Windows for all but NTFS drives. This is super annoying for those working with USB sticks, SD cards, etc. I avoid using NTFS as much as possible due to poor interoperability with Macs, Linux, and Chromebooks.

Now, this major annoyance is handled transparently by using XYplorer. (The rest of Windows is still broken, though).

THANK YOU!!

The Hamburger (damn, I should have called it the Cologner) has quietly grown into a power hub that can hold pretty much anything the app has to offer and present it in a pop-up menu. :beer:

@Don
I'm curious and think you should add a screenshot of your Power Hub (that's a nice feature name, btw).

Toolbar cycling, along with the capability of adding the menu bar items to a toolbar, what a great new feature. And while I'm here, thanks for your work and patience on folder thumbnail backgrounds and recognizing dark and light modes. I hope I didn't give you a headache. Thanks. :tup: :appl:

Yeah, as already stated in the feature thread, the new all-in-one toolbar is my feature of the year 2022. :party: :tup: :appl:

% Word Breaking: Improved the automatic word boundary recognition (on double-click,
Ctrl+Arrow, Ctrl+BackSpace) in the rename text boxes of all small lists.
This is so much better than Explorer. It's these small details that make using XY a pleasure!
Thank you :)

Code: Select all

    + Scrolling through the list views: Added a tweak to modify the feature.
    * Scrolling through the list views: Now the default is not to loop, i.e. scrolling 
      will stop at the first and last list view.
    * Setting a new list view: Now the name of the new view is always shown in the status 
      bar, also when doing it via the normal menu functions or any other way. Reason: 
      Doing it only for "Scrolling through the list views" leads to confusing messages.
    + CKS | Miscellaneous | List: Added two functions that work as an alternative to 
      Ctrl+WheelDown and Ctrl+WheelUp:
        #1082 - Miscellaneous | List | Next View      (Ctrl+9)
        #1083 - Miscellaneous | List | Previous View  (Ctrl+Shift+9)
      These functions also honor the CycleListViewsByWheelProps tweak.
solid and polished feature! :tup:
p.s. could be good to add this list to tweak description: 0 = Details,1 = List,2 = SmallIcons,3 = LargeIcons,4 = Tiles,5 = TilesLarge,6 = Thumbs1,7 = Thumbs2,8 = Thumbs3,9 = DetailsWithThumbs|r = reverse wheel o = loop

We'll see, I might even add a friendly official interface for it.

Code: Select all

    + Custom File Icons: Now you can assign icons extracted from icon resources (exe; dll; 
      cpl; ocx; scr; icl; bpl; wlx; wfx; wcx; wdx; acm). For example:
        jpg>C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll /163
        png>C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll /222
more customizability is always welcomed!

Code: Select all

v23.10.0003 - 2022-05-24 21:02
    * List Columns | Aspect Ratio: Now the column is correctly sorted by the actual 
      quotient (eg 0.5), not by the term of the quotient (eg 1:2).
    * Special Property | Aspect Ratio: Now the actual quotient (eg 0.5) is searched and 
      filtered, not the term of the quotient (eg 1:2). For example, this will give you all 
      images equal to or wider than 2:1:
        prop:#AspectRatio: >= 2:1
Fantastic! I really appreciate it! :tup:
