Thanks for the extra color tags. I use color tags extensively for my file management and this opens up so many more options. :tup:

Cool feature! :tup:

  +++ Filename Length Info. Now you can have a little info bar at the right end
      of the inline rename box showing the current length of the filename [b]and
      also (in parentheses) the length of the full path. The bar turns red when
      the item name is overlong[/b] (longer than 259 characters) and warns you if
      you enter characters that are not valid in a filename.
Overview always is king and this little but awesome feature helps to have more of such effective overview of what is going on. Therefore it is Over-Awesome!! Didn't ask for it, but a nice surprise: THANK YOU, Don!

Code: Select all

+ Customize Toolbar | Options | Show Button Captions: Added an additional submenu "Number of Caption Lines" where you can choose from 1 to 4 lines.
Love this! I didn't know it was an option until it was added to the UI in this latest release. I have a 40" 4K display and have quite a few icons on my toolbar which I really like, but now being able to see the captions on a few lines makes ALL of the icons more easily distinguishable and usable for me.

Out of curiosity, is there a way to tweak the font-size of the caption lines? I looked but didn't see anything. I'd like to be able to make the text smaller than what I currently see because my display would support it.

Thanks again for all the awesome features! XYPlorer is by far the most fully-featured file explorer I've ever seen.

Code: Select all

  +++ Drag Status Box: Experimentally added something to the mouse pointer while
      dragging stuff and hovering over a potential target. It tells you how many
      items are being dragged and what's the target full path.

    + Drag Status Box: You can tweak the colors at key DragStatusClasses. This is
      the factory default:
        DragStatusClasses=5495DC|FEA311|81409C|A0A0A0
like this! especially as only with tweak, and as with appearing of this feature i got to know about Ctrl/Shift-operation-modifiers, present for some time.

v18.80.0000 - 2018-03-05 12:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Open Throw Away Clone. Now you can open a clone of the current XYplorer
      instance in read-only mode. You can use such a clone for quick in-between
      jobs that should not affect your main configuration. Highly useful.
  ...
:tup: :tup: Should be really useful in theory. Time to put it to the test in real life. Thank you, Don.

Dear Don

Just a note to say thanks for such a wonderful product. I often think about writing to thank you - but this time I am doing it - prompted by 18.90 release with the "Prevent Unwanted Dragging" features.

Oh boy - but you were reading me well when you came up with these options.

XYplorer is an amazing piece of work. I keep saying I will "study" it properly and optomise my use of it. But the reality is - I keep learning as I go along - one useful feature after another.

Continued good fortunes.

Tom

Open Throw Away Clone!
Love it. Nice simple solution to running separate instances of XYplorer for long-running searches.
