##### Beta Releases / Re: v10.3 - BETA (Updated 30-Jan)
« on: February 02, 2021, 16:09:41 »
Hello Mathias,
I've just updated from 9.7 to 10.3 and got an empty toolbar here (not sure if this is related to this BETA).
Do you have an idea what caused that? Can I completely remove it like before?
I'm not able to reproduce that. Can be some missmatch with configuration since the toolbar is rewritten. Try to enable it and then disable it again
Just reproduced that on a clean 10.3 MC disabling the following:
Core settings->Standard Commands
Explorer panel settings->Layout->File commands
Explorer panel settings->Layout->Drive buttons

In previous versions that bar was hidden if the above options are disabled, now there is an empty bar.
Is this possible to bring back the old behaviour? I enjoyed my minimalist hotkey-oriented setup

Cool, that works! Thank you

PS this is not so important but I also just noticed another visual bug (screenshot attached)
Maybe DPI related; I'm on 3840x2160/250% (thinkpad T580)

##### Support and Feedback / Re: Prevent folder from locking
« on: January 16, 2018, 19:13:43 »
Thanks for the answer, but I didn't mean copying or any other filesystem operations. I mean when a folder's subfolder is opened in MC, it prevents from deleting that parent folder. Windows Explorer allows you to do that: if an opened folder or it's subfolder was deleted, Explorer will just 'cd' to first existing parent folder in the path, no access error occurs.

UPD:
Yeah, that's probably also kind of "files in use", but probably there is a simple workaround?

Hi! How to prevent a folder from access(move/delete) locking while opened in MC?

##### Beta Releases / Re: Multi Commander v7.6 BETA
« on: November 22, 2017, 22:56:30 »
Right... just checked in previous versions, there is the same thing
The problem appears when the menu bar is hidden in settings: if you open any menu and hover on its caption and then close the bar by pressing ALT or refreshing views.

"Extensions" and "Tools" menus stay highlighted even unfocused
Never noticed that before

##### Beta Releases / Re: New Already Exists Dialog
« on: November 22, 2017, 19:06:42 »
Renaming the new file is more consistent I guess... But renaming the existing file may be also useful in some cases
It's a good idea to implement both options unless they won't complicate the interface

P.S. sorry for reminding here, but can you check PM, please

Or "keep both" might also mean that it should be copied and rename it.. so that you get both files there
That's what I meant. It's useful when you want to archive/backup files(here default backup command doesnt't quite fit), but don't care about renaming matching files to "filename_(1)" for example.

Highlighting the timestamp of the newest file would be useful. Same for the highest size
Also, it could have "Keep both" option -- copy/move with incremental autorename

##### Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Editable path in each panel
« on: November 20, 2017, 14:08:01 »
Please make the path for each panel editable so that:
- it can be quickly added to e.g. I:\abc to I:\abc\def\xyz
- it can be easily copied (ctrl-C) for use in other applications
- it can be overwritten by pasting (ctrl-V) from other applications
1. cd def\xyz
2. alt-shift-p
3. did you try ctrl+v?

If you mean split size, check Core Settings->Layout->Application layout->Panel Tab->Remember split size between restarts

##### Tips and Tricks / Quick execute any portable(and not only) program(and scripts)
« on: July 07, 2017, 16:53:54 »
Hello there
I'm using a large number of portable programs for a long time(including Multi Commander).
Some of them are console, the others are GUI, but most of them accept arguments.
Sometimes it's very handy to use MC tools for shortcuts/buttons/file type setup, but in most cases this is not enough for me, therefore, I decided to make a tiny tool which finds and executes specified filename(or even the beginning of the filename). First version was written in Batch script, it had worked pretty slow and I've rewritten it to C(the code is below).

This tool (let's call it just "run") supports executing .bat, .cmd, .exe, .vbs and any other extension located in PATHEXT global variable
It tries to find specified file recursively, starting with root to itself folder. This is especially useful with portable devices where all paths should be relative. That's how portable programs approximately organized in my PC:
Code: [Select]
X:\data\exec\!run.exe    <--- Our tool. I called it "!run" because I have another program called "run"X:\data\exec\script1.vbs <---vbs scriptX:\data\exec\script2.bat <---batch scriptX:\data\exec\mc\MultiCommander.exeX:\data\exec\firefox\firefox.exeX:\data\exec\sysinternals\procmon\procmon.exeAnd so on

To execute any of them with any arguments, I only need to "!run <filename> [args]"
For example:
"!run upx -9 target.exe" - run upx\upx.exe with arguments "-9 target.exe"
or
"!run proc" - run sysinternals\procmon\procmon.exe
or
"!run multi" - run mc\multicommander.exe

Using this tool with MC is very useful because you can easily copy filepaths and pass them as arguments. (Don't forget to wrap path arguments with spaces in quotation marks, otherwise your programs will parse them as different arguments)
Keep in mind that MC command line is limited to visible borders, but I hope this will be changed in future.

Well, let's integrate our tool with Multi Commander:
##### Script / Re: ${focusfilepath} tag « on: April 18, 2016, 12:58:22 » I read about this function, but it is only "Get the full path to the item in focus in the source view." AFAIU. What about target view? 25 ##### Script /${focusfilepath} tag
How to get value of "${focusfilepath}"? In this code it always returns nothing Code: [Select] @var$cmdargs = "powershell dir " + GetTagValue("${focusfilepath}") + "-Recurse | Unblock-File";MC.Run CMD="powershell" arg="{$cmdargs}"
