Hi Don,
It's been a while since I posted. Usually I like to experiment with a new feature, then comment/post on the forum about it. The wife and I had a daughter in April 2012, so my computer time has been severely reduced. The last major feature (I can think of) that I wanted to comment on, but never got a chance to, was custom icons--very cool! I've made myself some variations of the stock Word Doc icon. They are applied to doc files per what the name of the file is.

Pretty cool stuff!

Then just yesterday I saw a new toolbar icon (Toggle Instant Color Filter) and was quite impressed. It's a tool that I am already making use of! :biggrin:

Just now I see the bit about breadcrumbs... Will investigate that next.

Thanks for you work on these Don!

Nighted,
Would you be very generous enough to share with us your uses of breadcrums?
How do breadcrums help your work?
Thanks.

Just advised Don that applying font sizes to Breadcrumbs doesnt appear to work - but on the flip side, am really liking the breadcrumbs implementation in XY.

I usually hate breadcrumbs and never use it, but as per usual Dons implementation works superbly and i am now using it all the time - Don has put in the effort to actually make it really useful :D

Thanks

Andy

EVERYTHING so far from version 12 to 13 that you have added is amazing so far! (Well, I don't use the checkbox selection much but the rest are great!). And the new BC is perfect! It's great being able to quickly navigate back and forth between places and also it looks great too!

Instead of checkboxes, I love the Line Number Selection. It does not get in the way since it's always activated for me but it allows me to easily select multiple files without turning on or off sticky selection every time.

GoUpIsBack=1 is also great. Not much else to say hehe.

Instant Color Filters - AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! So easy to use. So quick to use. Have the best of Color Filters PLUS the ability to "throw away" when not needed. Great! :biggrin:

ANIMATED GIFS! FINALLY!

Tiles View - Very useful. Very nice looking. Great stuff.

Color Filters by Length - This is very useful. In the past, I always had to use a script to show me if I had any files over 256. Now with this, I can tell right away if the file is above a certain length. Of course I still use the other script to do batch finds.

But yeah, there is so much other stuff that's just great! Thank you! :appl:

The new breadcrumb is a beauty! :biggrin:
Now it's a joy to browse through folders, and I can't work without it anymore. I like the bold and fat font (it's easy to read), the colors of our choice, the extensive customizations... What more could we need?
Thank you, Don! A work of art, practical and very useful. :appl: :appl:

FVSVF (Folder View Settings with Visual Filters) -- wow, this really good! It came out of the blue (well, thanks to cslevine and LittleBig!), and already changed my core work environment. Simple and powerful, the classic killer feature. :beer:

This is a very crowded folder. But all I need to see is those 3 files. Brilliant!

I would like to thank you for reconsidering this feature. I have been waiting for FVSVF for very long time.
