They all have a key (but only I know it ), but let's keep that in the other thread...

+++ Clipboard Markers: Totally revolutionized how items are marked that are
currently in the clipboard.
Yes, location pins are pretty cool and stylish and potentially useful. And separate scroll values for thumbnails are definitely very useful (secretly wished for that for a long time).
Haven't tested it yet, but alone the willingness to finally add this... THANK YOU! This should remove one of the biggest (if not the biggest) drawbacks of XY. I can't believe that I am allowed to still experience this in my lifetime. Or I am just lucky to be living in this instance of universes where it happened? Anyway, thank you, Don.https://www.xyplorer.com/xyfc/viewtopic.php?p=172193#p172193 wrote:v20.30.0013 - 2019-09-02 12:25
+++ Configuration | Other | Shell Integration | 64-bit Windows: Added option
"Use 64-bit IFilters". Tick it to make use of any installed 64-bit
IFilters and thus enable previewing and searching the textual contents of
complex document formats (e.g. Office files, PDF).
- Notoriously Microsoft Office made it a habit to install only 64-bit
IFilters on a 64-bit system, even if the Office version itself is
32-bit. However, 64-bit IFilters are completely useless to other 32-bit
apps (Office itself does not need them).
- From this version onwards XYplorer can optionally access those 64-bit
IFilters by way of a 64-bit helper process created by Contents64.exe,
which from now on is included in the distribution package.
Contents64.exe (currently ver 1.3) has to be located in the path of
XYplorer.exe. The installer takes care of this.
- In practical terms this means XYplorer can now text-preview (e.g. in the
Hover Box) and content-search Office and PDF files on 64-bit Windows.
- Of course, the option is only offered under 64-bit Windows (it would be
meaningless under 32-bit Windows).
- The functionality is provided by the helper file Contents64.exe which
has to be located in the path of XYplorer.exe. The new download packages
contain this file.
- Last not least, credits and a big thanks for designing and writing
Contents64.exe go to "Mesh" (from XY Beta Club)!
I never thought of it, but now I adore it: in List view when you selected a file, the default selection rectangle used to cover entirely the Color filter, so it was nearly impossible to notice the latter.Now you can optionally have Color Filters fill the whole column.
