Once again Flux, thanks very much for the v6.00 update. I haven't used your new catalog saving feature since I only have one catalog, but everything else is working great. :appl:

Brilliant -- thanks!

This is my most relied-upon script, I use it multiple times a day, and your continued work on it is quite wonderful. Just sayin' :appl: :biggrin:

Thanks for the feedback!

   Personally, I dig the new “Window Position and Size” feature. :mrgreen:
   I also use it with regular sessions:
   I have updated my default layout with a finely tuned window size and position which works most of the time, but sometimes I need to further resize or move XY (for windows with specific drag and drop locations); then afterwards, no need to readjust the window manually as I used to: I just reset the layout to default and Bang! Welcome back to efficiency territory! 8)

Thank you very much for this script! Multiple times every day my needs change from one set of folders to a different one. This saves me from the tediousness. I'm also impressed that you have been updating since 2012!

Thanks a lot for such positive feedback! :)
& I see it’s your first / nearly first post!!! Welcome to the forum Pharaoh and FKF5482.

A new version is coming soon.
Iconized sessions are cool (and useful!), so I rewrote the icon assignment/removal : now you’ll also be able to choose session icons from the list of XYplorer’s internal ones.

###  Session Manager v6.20  ###

Hi everyone,
Here’s a new version, which should definitely spice up your sessions… :mrgreen:

Have a nice day! 8)


+ Pump up your sessions with icons v2.0: now you can easily pick an icon from the list of ~170 internal icons of XYplorer! (*)
   Plus, it’s easier to add/edit/remove icons, now via a single dialog window.
   (*) The list of icons comes from the hard work of SammaySarkar in his XYplorer Icon Resources thread.
+ Ctrl+Alt + Click on Session Manager toolbar button will reset XYplorer default layout, i.e. your prefered layout style, size and position! (And regardless of the current session.) It’s too useful not to have its official quick access.
   Reminder: Alt + Click on SM button resets the current session (with its layout if it has one)
+ Dark Mode state can be saved automatically with layout sessions, so you can have e.g. your "Backup Management" session in windowed dual pane Light mode, and your "Photo Browser" session in fullscreen single pane Dark mode. This is enabled by checking the broader Options > Enable Autosave of Extra Settings...
   Note: To know more about what "extras" this option autosaves, a confirmation dialog with some info now opens when you enable it. So if it’s already enabled, just toggle it Off and On to see it (toggling it doesn’t affect saved sessions).
For more details, see changelog just below…

I am running XY 19.90.0100 and it will not update to 19.90.0106 via the menus.

The XY web site only shows 19.90.0100

Session Manager 6.20 won't run on the version I have that I can't update.

What to do? :?: :?: :?: :?:

Thank you very much for the update FluxTorpedoe, i absolutely love the icon options (the rest features i didn't have much time to play with but they seem to be very practical). So far I am amazed, thanks again. :appl:
