v22.10.0013 - 2021-08-01 19:19
    * Tweak ListAutoMaxNameColumn: Now it also adjusts the width of the Name 
      column when you load a Column Layout via "View | Columns | Load Column 
      Layout..." or "Toolbar | Column Layouts".
    * Tweak ListAutoSizeSizeColumn: Now it also adjusts the width of the Size 
      column when you load a Column Layout via "View | Columns | Load Column 
      Layout..." or "Toolbar | Column Layouts".
    ! SC paperfolder: Adding items to a non-existing Paper Folder did not work 
      anymore since 20210310. For example:
        paperfolder("xy-20210801", "%windir%\notepad.exe", , "a");
      Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

v22.10.0014 - 2021-08-02 10:14
    + SC automaxcolumn enhanced: Added parameter "keepempty". It allows you to 
      keep some pixels empty right of the last column. Can be useful e.g. to 
      allow lasso selection from the right when Full Row Select is enabled.
      Syntax: automaxcolumn [column], [switches], [minwidth=64], [keepempty], [pane=a]
        keepempty: Number of pixels to keep empty on the right.
      Example:
        automaxcolumn "name", , 175, 20;  //max Name, min width 175, keep empty 20

v22.10.0101 - 2021-08-17 13:43
    + Toolbar | Column Layouts: Now you can show the column widths in true 
      pixels (as opposed to DPI-aware values) when you hold CTRL+SHIFT while 
      clicking any of the "Update..." items in the button's menu. Additionally 
      this mode will return only the visible columns, and the Size column will 
      return its actual width without graphic awareness (/g switch).
      FYI, internally the Column Layouts are based on DPI-aware values that work 
      the same across different screen resolutions.
    ! Breadcrumb Bars: Navigating within a junction jumped to the junction 
      target when "Configuration | General | Controls & More | Miscellaneous | 
      Resolve junctions" was ticked. Fixed. Now, regardless of this setting, it 
      always remains within the junction folder structure, just as it is 
      naturally expected.
    ! List Management dialogs: Moving an item past the top in a filtered list 
      crashed the app. Fixed.
    ! Tab Icons: Slightly wrong positions at higher screen resolutions. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    * Configuration | Find and Filter | Filters & Type Ahead Find | Type Ahead 
      Find | Redirect typing to Live Filter Box: Undid the undoing of 
      v21.70.0001 - 2021-04-14 15:39. So now space keys are again treated like 
      other keys and are redirected to the Live Filter Box (however they cannot 
      be the first character of a filter pattern).
      If you prefer not to redirect space keys you can use this tweak now:
        TAFgoLFBSkipSpaces=1
    ! List | Tiles Views: With checkboxes enabled, mouse clicks or hovers on 
      items in the non-first columns were out of sync with reality since 
      20170719 (!), with the result that the checkboxes could not be checked, and 
      various click and hover effects would not happen when they should. Fixed.
    ! Tabs: The tab icon was not always updated immediately when a tab was 
      turned into a Paper Folder (since 20210712). Fixed.

Code: Select all

v22.10.0103 - 2021-08-19 13:27
    * Tree and List: Revised the changes from v21.60.0119 - 2021-04-01 13:15. 
      Now the Space key works again as a Type Ahead Find key also in the first 
      position of the filter/search pattern.
      If you prefer not to redirect the Space key you can use this tweak now:
        TAFgoLFBSkipSpaces=1
      Might raise this tweak to Configuration later.
    * Tweak TAFgoLFBSkipSpaces: Now it works independently of the current 
      selection state (which was just too complex a condition for muscle memory).
      BEFORE: don't redirect the Space key if it can select an item
      NOW:    don't redirect the Space key to the Live Filter Box
    * Type Ahead Find (Tree and List): Now a single Space key will work in TAF 
      just like any other key. To suppress this new behavior and go back to the 
      old one, you can use this tweak:
        TAFSkipSingleSpaces=1
    > List: If you want to select the currently focused item by keyboard and 
      Space would be redirected to the LFB or used in TAF, you can use Ctrl+Space 
      (which actually toggles the selection of the currently focused item).
    ! Configuration: The undocumented Ctrl+Right-Click function to display 
      breadcrumb paths to each option has received some minor bugs recently. 
      Fixed.
    ! Configuration Dialog: In a multi-monitor setup the dialog's size didn't 
      adjust to the monitor size if the dialog was positioned on a different and 
      smaller monitor than the main window. Fixed.
    ! Thumbnails and Tiles: Hovering the checkbox (in checkbox mode) was 
      processed as hovering the thumbnail. Not anymore. Now you won't get a 
      Hover Box in that moment.
    ! Thumbnails and Tiles: Hovering the Age Circle (if any) was processed as 
      hovering the thumbnail. Not anymore. Now you get the expected tooltip with 
      age information.
    ! Image Preview: When previewing images with more than 40 MB square pixels 
      you were getting black areas and a preview smaller than necessary. Fixed.
To download the latest BETA version choose a download package: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package.

    ! List: Switching to List view ended up in a half empty list pane when the 
      focused item was near the end of the list. Fixed.
    ! Configuration | Preview | Thumbnails | Thumbnail widths and heights: 192 
      was out of order in the thumbnail size drop down menu. Fixed for fresh 
      instances and for upgraders that did not tweak the sizes.
    ! Configuration: The undocumented Ctrl+Right-Click function to display 
      breadcrumb paths to each option has received some minor bugs recently. 
      Fix #2.

v22.10.0202 - 2021-08-21 19:12
    - Reverted this change from v21.50.0115 - 2021-02-08 13:45:
      * List: From now on, the Path column is used as 2ndary sort field (ascending 
        order) in Find mode (incl. Branch View). Before, the Name column was used.
    + List: Added tweak to re-enable the change that has been reverted above:
        SortSecondarySRbyPath=1
      So, you set this to 1 if you want to secondary-sort your search results 
      (incl. Branch View) by Path instead of by Name.
    + List: Added tweak to show the implicit secondary sort order (if any) by a 
      very light small sort arrow.
        SortSecondaryShowAlways=1
      Pretty useful IMO. Might add to Configuration later.

v22.10.0203 - 2021-08-23 17:20
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns: Added option "Always 
      autosize the Size column". The Size column is the one with the most variable 
      contents, the one that's typically always either too wide or too narrow. 
      This option will autosize the Size column when changing locations or 
      switching tabs or when a new column layout is loaded.
      FYI, this option raises tweak ListAutoSizeSizeColumn to UI.
    + Tab Bars: Added tweak to always keep some pixels empty at the right end of 
      each tab bar (if possible), e.g. 20 pixels:
        TabBarKeepEmpty=20
      That way you always have a target available for the "Double-click on white 
      in tab bar" and "Middle-click on white in tab bar" Custom Event Actions.
    + Help | Various Information: Now in line 8 the Windows UI language is 
      shown, e.g. "UI Language: English". Just in case you don't know. :)

    + Floating Preview: The right-click menu of the Floating Preview's status 
      bar now has a toggle "Left-Align Status Text". Does what it says.
    + SC input() enhanced: Now the "width" parameter is used with style "s" 
      (default style) if you pass it.
        echo input("Test", 5:=1000);
      Also the "notes" parameter is not limited internally to 20 lines anymore 
      but can go up to 64 lines (if screen space allows).

    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns: Added option 
      "Autofit the width of the Name column". Tick it to let the Name column 
      take up all of the space not used by the other columns.
      FYI, this option raises tweak ListAutoMaxNameColumn to UI.
    - Configuration | Colors and Styles | Styles | Columns | Adaptive name 
      column width: Removed that feature. It finally worked well (after an 
      initial time of problems) but the whole concept was not really intuitive 
      and unnecessarily complex. The new "Autofit the width of the Name column" 
      achieves basically the same with a simpler approach and, by the way, much 
      less code.
    ! Configuration: The undocumented Ctrl+Right-Click function to display 
      breadcrumb paths to each option has received some minor bugs recently. 
      Fix #3.

      FYI, this option raises tweak SortSecondaryShowAlways to UI.
    - MSG files have been excluded from the 64-bit preview in v20.90.0917 - 
      2020-08-31 13:26 because it just did not work. Experimentally this 
      exclusion has now been removed.
    % MSG Preview: Improved the speed of the 32-bit MSG Preview.
    ! Configuration | Tabs and Panes | Tabs | Minimum / Maximum tab width in 
      pixels: Since 20210628 the maximum could not go below 250. Fixed. The 
      limit for both fields is 25; the defaults are 25 / 250.

v22.10.0207 - 2021-08-29 14:12
    + SC get("previewhandler"): Added a little debugging thing to learn about 
      the currently active preview handler. When you don't pass the "extension" 
      parameter, some lines of information are now returned.
      Example:
        text get("previewhandler"); //while a preview is shown
      Example return #1:
        Previewed extension: msg
        Preview handler bitness: 32-bit

        Preview handler GUID: {CF822AB4-6DB5-4FDA-BC28-E61DF36D2583} [User-Defined]
        Initialization type: IInitializeWithStream
      Example return #3:
        No preview handler is used.
    * XY64: Updated to 1.0.0.24.
    - Re-excluded MSG files from the 64-bit preview. Still does not work.
    ! Dark Mode: Since 20210724 the "info" icon was shown as the "nope" icon in 
      Dark Mode in certain contexts. Fixed.
