Hover Data Preview (Beta)
===================================
This is the new major feature to MultiCommander in this release.

This is a new type over hover tips (tooltip) when hovering over files. This hover tooltip can show lots more information.
But it can also be annoying if you do not need it. But when you need it you do not want to dig down in settings to enable it.
So Hover Data Preview tips are enabled/disabled using Ctrl+H, or press the new talk-bubble icon on the toolbar
(the talk bubble icon will turn green when enabled).

When enabled and when you hover over files you will get more information.
If you hover over an images and videos it will show the thumbnail. For text files it will show the first couple of line in the file.
For .exe file it will show version and other information. and so on.

Any file property that MultiCommander support can be shown in the Hover Data Preview tips.

What the Hover Data Preview tips are showing are customizable. However right now there is no UI for it.
But if you are brave you can try to edit the DataPreviewsTemplates.xml in config (copy it to your user config folder first) else you loose your changes when multicommander is updated.

Features missing from Hover Data Preview tips that are planned are
* Able to Zoom thumbnail that are show with mouse wheel ( probably need to hold shift and scroll to zoom )
* Able to show zip information for zip files. And what some of the zip inside the zip is
* When hovering over folder show the first folders/files in the folders
* Show Windows Preview in the Hover Data Preview tip. This will hook into the Preview Handler in Windows 10/11 and depending on what you have installed, you get more information on special files.

In the future some more extended features for the Hover Data preview is planed.

Please let me know if you fell that some information is missing from the Hover data preview tips.
Like when hovering for file type X it should show Y.

Thanks for the new features Matthias. ;)

The enhanced hover tooltip looks good.  Shows a lot of blank space for my pdf's (see attached) but nice preview on jpgs.

See attached - I'm running in Dark mode & I noticed that the tabs - with custom colours now get blacked out randomly.... bug or not?

Yes pdf not supported yet.  It been prepared, it will be supported by Windows Preview handler api so if a preview handler for pdf is installed. (I think windows 10+ have that as default, not sure) it will be able to show pdf.

I forgot to disable the PDF preparation I done in the DataPreviewTemplates.xml file, before pushing a beta release

Thanks for the reply Mathias.

In the screen shot you can see some tabs that are coloured & some are black, they should all be coloured.
They do show colour when the mouse is hovering & on click but return to black one mouse moves away.

PDFs - I'm using W10, & I guessed there should be a preview but the tooltip is pretty big for all that blank space so I thought I better mention it. :)

Say mention above.. PDF support is not fully there yet, It will probably be added in the next beta unless the Windows Preview API cause issues

Hi Mathias,

I'm sending some points which I found in new release (probably issues regarding favourite window was also in previous version):
1. I think icon for show/hide hidden files was good, better then new one - in my opinion (Please see Screen1.jpg).
2. If you plan to keep new icon, is it possibility to standardize it, I mean the same folder icon in the background, like one showed with green underline? (Please see Screen2.jpg)
3. Favourite window – there is issue with font colour, as you can see font should be yellow, but unfortunately is in grey like full row marking. Hover colour is also not working correctly. (Please see Screen3.jpg)
4. No possible to translate Inactive option, I think this is added function, but honestly speaking I was not able to test it during work with MC - could you give more details about it? (Please see Screen4.jpg)
5. No possible to translate sentences marked in orange. (Please see Screen5.jpg)
6. I think shortcut for Hover data preview CTRL+H should not be set as a default; I’m using this shortcut to show/hide hidden & system files and after update I had a conflict. So maybe there is a chance that MC after update will check if there are shortcut conflicts.
7. Pack and unpack command from menu and shortcut  (Alt+F5) doesn’t work.
8. There are still some windows not showed in dark mode like Multirename and others.

1. Im not happy with the new icon either, it will change, but Im also not happy with the old. the icon don't really say what it does.
  Hide/Show things are often shown with an "eye" kind of icon. Will see if I can fix a better one, the current are really bad, maybe the eye should not be transparent, but white..
 Not sure.

3. Hmm Is it not kind of overkill to be able to customize all the colors in the favorites windows? been thinings about maybe removing that. fells like to much, Maybe should just follow the colors setup for file list instead. Anyway, until that it should work so will take a look
4. Hmm Strange that should be translatable, I will check.
5. I will check
6. It will be possible to remap it.  Not sure what to use as default. It will always conflict with some users personal setup
7.  Yes it does. Works for me,  strange, sure you have not clear the mapping ?
8. Yes I know, many windows are not fixed. It require lots of work for each windows, So many windows that are not shown so often have low prio.. However MultiRename windows is high on the list

Hi

The icon you proposed above is much better then in beta version :-)

Anyway, there is some issue with keyboard shortcuts.
Since years I have F2 for rename, and F7 for new folder. In newest beta something has changed, please see attached screen. Even if shortcut is wrong, F2 and F7 is working correctly, there is only visualization issue in button panel.

Hmm not see anything with that. what does it look like?

Hi Mathias,
did you find anything on the tabs issue I have? 
Here are some more examples, 3 screens of the same section of tab bar:-
Mouse cursor position determines color for some tabs, as you can see mousing away reverts others to black & in some cases color changes if selected (red to blue in the attached).
Tabs still showing colors are persistent between MC starts/reboots, the black tabs seem to always be the same & will call color on mouse contact.
I've tried reassigning colors to 'faulty' tabs but the new settings don't have any effect.

Only want to report, that per default no preview handler for pdf is installed on Windows 10.

Actually Edge installs a preview handler for pdf by default.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\Edge\Application\102.0.1245.33\PdfPreview\PdfPreviewHandler.dll

Not sure if you install something else will remove the connections for that, I guess that if you install another pdf reader that reader might install its own Pdf preview handler.

No able to recreate that  yet,
Hm wait I think there are a change, If you go in to tab properties you can now define different colors for when tab is active and inactive.
Might be that if that is not configure if does not fallback to the correct color ? So test if it helps to define an color for when tab is inactive

Thanks Mathias.

With b2877 I am able to: - reset to default>apply; change color>apply & it works now.
I can also set active/inactive color options & the settings are retained & persist after restarts.
It may be worth noting that this switch between active & inactive color assignments only works for 'Solid' color.
I believe that the active/inactive drop-down was previously only accessible when 'solid color' was selected, now it is accessible for both schemes.

......But I will now be able to sleep again!   ;D
