ADDED - MultiFileViewer have experimental support for line filtering (grep)

It works very well for being "experimental". I already have had good use of it.
Being able to filter out lines from logfiles that are 2-300MB in memory is very fast and useful..

New beta available build 1650.

most of the changes in this beta are for internal changes or for high DPI changes.
But there are also a couple of new things.. See the modified changelog in the first post at the top

Max read/write chunk size is now working properly, and the buffers size display as well.

Thankyou ;D

Previously when I clicked the path bar on the active pane I could get my favorites/quick paths list up. 
Doesn't seem to want to do that now - 4.2 b1669
Is it just me or is something broken?


Good to see some cool new script features appearing.  :D

It must be just you :) because it is still there. But you must right click on "empty" area.  (Unless you reconfigured in under mouse settings in the Explorer Panel)

Just installed b1671 & my favorites via click is gone again.
Had some weird permissions & sharing errors dialogs appear on file move & rename ops until I rebooted  ???
Reboot hasn't brought the favorites back to the path field this time  :(
All MC files are whitelisted, I cleaned the cache etc in Win as a precaution, & I'm always running as Admin.
Coincidence?

I'm not able to recreate that problem and don't even understand how the menu does not even show up.
Only reason is if it can't read the config file and it things the action is "do nothing" But even without a config file that should not happen since the default are "do something"..

Whitelist ?  Are you running some kind of sandboxing ?
There are all kind of strange problem with those, I do not use them and do not test using them.

If you run the installed version you can test and see if you get the same issue with the portable version (they use the same binaries. but different default config)

Hi Mathias,
I'm using Comodo IS, it 'partially' sandboxes new executables.  I then add these to the white-list.
Turned off CIS & it doesn't affect MC & the favorites dialog.
Portable version doesn't work either.
When I click the path field I only get a response with hi-lighting of the path & it being selectable. 
Bottom line - I need this feature more than the favorites dialog which I can access by the other means.

Do other popup menus work ?

Nothing in the code with the favorites popup menu or the path field have change i in 4.2 or not even in 4.1.

The only way I can make the favorites popup menu go way. is if I change the mouse configuration for "Path Field" and set the action "Right click outside path item" to "No Action"

Just did the update to 1672 & it's back.
Before that I did a deep AV scan, defrag & reg clean which didn't show anything unexpected so I am mystified. 
Some TSR getting in the way maybe...?  ::)

Just proves MC is a can't live without app.  ;)
