    + Edit | Paste Special | Edit Clipboard...: If there is text in the clipboard, the 
      number of lines, words, and characters is now displayed in the footer. Can be used 
      to quickly measure some text.
      It's very primitive: Line separator is CRLF, word separator is SPACE and CRLF. 
      Empty lines count, but not the last one. Empty words don't count. Character count 
      includes CRLF. There is a limit: It's done only for texts < 1 MB characters.

:off: Summary of the latest XYplorer Official Release.

Direct Download: https://www.xyplorer.com/download/xyplorer_full.zip
Download Page: https://www.xyplorer.com/download.php
Release Notes: https://www.xyplorer.com/release.php

Code: Select all

v25.20.0000 - 2023-11-22 18:00
    = NEW OFFICIAL RELEASE. Main developments since last release:
  +++ Overall Spacing. Now you can fine-tune the overall spacing (or airiness, or density) 
      of the main window. Do you want to see as much information as you can squeeze in, or 
      do you prefer a more relaxed layout with larger click targets?
  +++ Dual Locations. Full support for dual locations allows you to open new folders in 
      both panes with a single click, filter both panes with a single click, perform 
      searches in both panes with a single click, and add the combined locations of both 
      panes to your Favorites list. If you use dual panes, this is what you have been 
      waiting for.
  +++ Highlight the Other Path. Now you can color code the path of the inactive pane in 
      the folder tree. It can be useful to know what's on the other side and where it is.
  +++ Many Other Improvements. See change log.
:info: To easily upgrade to this new version from XYplorer, click Help | Online Support | Check for Updates. If you prefer to download this new version, choose one of these packages: (1) Installer Package, (2) No-Install Package (for manual unpacking).

v25.20.0103 - 2023-11-28 11:59
    + SC tag enhanced: Now you can toggle labels and remove only a particular label.
      Syntax: tag [value], [itemlist], [type=0], [tagsmode=0]
        tagsmode   on type 0: [Default] 0=set, 1=toggle, 2=unset      <-- NEW!
                   on type 1: [Default] 0=add, 1=replace, 2=remove
      Examples:
        tag "Green";        //set label(s) "Green"
        tag "Green", 3:=1;  //toggle label(s) "Green"
        tag "Green", 3:=2;  //unset label(s) "Green" (keep other labels)
    + Configuration | Colors and Styles | Color Filters: Added option "Draw background 
      colors as rounded rectangles". Check it if you want it.
      You can exclude individual filters from the roundness by passing the "-r" switch:
        len:>=260|-r //overlong items (sharp rect)      
    * Color Filters: Rounded background colors are now only rounded on the left side if 
      Distinctive Shapes is enabled. Otherwise it just looks ugly.
    * Color Filters: Slightly increased roundness to 35% of half box height. Value can be 
      tweaked here (range 1 - 100; default 35):
        ColorFilterRoundness=35
    * Color Filters | Style Switches: The "l" switch is now deprecated and replaced by 
      "-s".
         s = Draw background color in distinctive shape (even if the general 
             setting is disabled).
        -s = Don't draw background color in distinctive shape (even if the general 
             setting is enabled).

      the texts are now drawn horizontally centered. And the height of the labels is 
      derived from the font height, not the row height.
    ! Quick Search and Branch View: The "Maximum depth" setting (in Info Panel | Find

      And this even though both Quick Search and Branch View always include subfolders,
