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.

« on: May 22, 2022, 22:38:22 »
That sound very strange. 
It is all column or just some..
Nothing at all is happening no matter what column you click on ?
Only files or folder or both ?

What copy should do depends and veryies depending on person..

There are many ways to copy files in MC and some of them are not handled by MC but by Windows. and some bypass some stages.
so first,  How do you copy the file .. copy paste ? using copy button or hotkey ? or Drag and drop ? other ?  some modes does not allow you to start a copy to and from same path

If you want to replace x:\temp\file.txt with x:\temp\file_bak.txt you can do drag and drop and drop file_bak.txt on file.txt and you are asked via a popup menu if you want to copy and replace or move and replace

Support and Feedback / Re: Cannot unlock a Bitlocker drive
« on: May 03, 2022, 22:56:35 »
I cannot reproduce that.
Not sure why it does not work. MC is not doing anything it self with bitlocker. All that is handled by Windows.

No you cannot customize icons. But in the Favorites Window you can configure lots of favorites and they are then found under FAV: in the virtual filesystem. FAV: is found in the DropDown and tree and other places.

Hidden/System files are shown in the tree, is it also hidden in the list panel ?

also check C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ 
That folder is shown as the System32 folder for 32bit application on 64bit OS

Some security software can hook it self into Windows to prevent files/folders from being shown for 3rd party application. But normally they are hidden even in the shell as well. (WinExplorer)

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: support for \\wsl$ ?
« on: March 13, 2022, 17:02:02 »
It is how Windows works. I guess \\WSL$ is some sort of fake device. that is not exposed with normal network APIs

Is it you that uploaded large dump on friday ?

« on: March 12, 2022, 13:20:27 »
Not sure what \\WSL$ is exposed as, Might be a Windows Shell only thing.
If it was a normal network thing it should be found in network device.

Support and Feedback / Re: Possible bug (?) related to file colors
« on: March 12, 2022, 13:17:55 »
Yes might be a bug for Readonly for the simple coloring
You can use the Rules based file coloring is much more powerful and allow for more control.

Store edition is a bit late. I been very busy, But it should be updated this month

In ThumbnailDetails mode all other columns you add will also be shown

But in Thumbnail List mode. only filename is also shown

I created DumpFile according to your instruction from documentation using TaskManager but...While uploading I obtained such a message: Sorry, there was a problem uploading your file. Storage is low on free disk space
Wops.. ok I will fix that

You can queue multiple delete operations

Menu > Configuration > Core Settings > FileSystem (tab)
check option at the top.. change delete to Ask / or Add to existing queue

UserMenu.xml is not needed.
It stores the information for user added menus and commands in the menu.. If you have not added anything there, There is no configuration of that to load.
So it must be something else. Is a crash dump sent ? was a dialog shown with a CrashID ? if it was then I can look up the crash report manually and check

You should be able to get size, but onedrive can be configured in different way depending on version and OS.
But it depends on how you set it up. If there is symlinks or junctions link for folder these will not be followed when getting size (since it can resolve into a loop and never end.)
On Win10, If "file on demand" is active. Then it will show the size of all files even if they are not synced to disk yet and are tagged as offline.

I'm not able to reproduce that

It in on all locations or just on some location ? It the folder some sort of filesystem link ?

That will not be possible. Also the buttons with text are to big for that.
However a "maybe" I got on my list is to have for a column of icons there between the panels.

« on: February 18, 2022, 15:00:47 »
Right click on the filter icon at the bottom of the Explorer Panel.
There you can enable options of you want filters to auto reset, and if they should be remembered when returning to folder you set filter for

Support and Feedback / Re: Config compatibility
« on: February 18, 2022, 14:45:23 »
Most part should work.
But some parts have changed how settings are stored. And some auto conversion from old to new format are removed after a couple of version.
So If you really want to be safe.  Download old version from website. and go forward one major version at the time.

Or just backup you settings and try.  Most settings around UI configuration things have not been changed. I think..

You can configure background color for active and inactive panel so they are different.
