Beta Releases / Re: v14.0 BETA
« on: May 25, 2024, 08:14:29 »
Good catch.. Will fix that
For normal file copy it should be enabled, if copying inside archives it should not

52
That's really odd.

I tried it on 2 PCs, one with Windows 7, the other with Windows 10.
I tried it with the installer and the portable version.
I even tried earlier versions, back to the oldest available on the download page (v11.3).
The only changes in the configuration I made was unchecking "Show link target in name column".

The results were frustratingly consistent:
Toggling the option always made targets appear or disappear for symlinks to directories. But it had no effect on symlinks to files. For them the target was always displayed.

It's not as if the universe would implode, if that mystery couldn't be solved.
But it would be very convenient, if symlinks were a bit less obtrusive.

So, though I know that this question is slightly impertinent ;): Did it really really ever work as intended with file symlinks?

Correct.. for files it does not check that option.. Easy fix.. will be fixed in next version

ah Files. Hmm I only have Folders here.. Will check tomorrow.

No if you uncheck that, symlinks should not show target path.. maybe the view is not refreshed ?

Is the jpg you try to open sync to local ?
maybe you did something from MC that trigger it to download and sync a file on onedrive., and then you aborted the sync and told it to block that app (MC) .? (Then you need to unblock it in Settings in onedrive)

Texts ? I don't know. Have not seen that. Are that for files on onedrive ?

Support and Feedback / Re: Issue with drag and drop
« on: May 22, 2024, 17:25:40 »
I can drag and drop a file from MC and drop into "file upload" place on a webpage  (Like drive.google.com)
If I hover over a tab in chrome. while dragging. the tab is switching.. 

MC have no control of any of that. Sounds like a browser issue.. If you search for drag and drop issue with chrome there are many results.

Yes, text is ok, but not the two boxes.
Both boxes should be at the same height / level.
The problem is if they are, it looks like the advanced button and save button belong to the settings for Keeping incomplete/Broken files.

I been thinking to swap the left and right side if settings. then the buttons is not so close to just one setting

Looks like the text fits into the fields

Documentation / Re: Missing Documentation - Status
« on: May 19, 2024, 08:55:18 »
Hello,
I discovered TabSessions by myself, so I am not quite aware of what exists about this.
Can you confirm the documentation is still missing ?
I imagine the preferred format is HTML ?
Any stylesheet ready ? Right that for this I can have a look in the existing pages.
Yes lots of things missing from doc. Writing doc takes a lot of time. and my free time is a bit limited. So When I get time to spend time on MC it is bug fixes and new things that gets the prio.

The documentation is on GitHub.
https://github.com/MultiCommander/MultiCommander-Documentation

But there no good offline reader for them, The pages are not complete html pages. Only HTML content, since they are on the website inserted into the template used and so..
Only offline reader is if you got Python then you open Phyton as a webserver with index.html and browse to it using browser.

Hi Mathias,

in latest beta there is a small glitch. Should be on the same level, or not? Possible to fix?

What is the issue ?

Support and Feedback / Re: How to Drop&Run?
« on: May 17, 2024, 20:00:47 »
When you drag a file onto an executable file (e.g., a .exe file) in Windows Explorer, Windows passes the full path of the dragged file as a parameter to the executable.

For example, if you have a file named example.txt located at C:\Users\User\Documents\example.txt and you drag this file onto an executable named processfile.exe, the executable will receive the file path as an argument.

When you drag example.txt onto processfile.exe and run it, the output will look something like this:

Argument 0: C:\Path\To\Executable\processfile.exe
Argument 1: C:\Users\User\Documents\example.txt

argv[0] is the path to the executable itself, and argv[1] is the path to the dragged file. If multiple files are dragged, they will be passed as additional arguments (argv[2], argv[3], etc.).

yes Arg1 is the first parameter to the program. argv0 is always the exe of the program it self. it is not something any program sent to it.

Beta Releases / Re: Copy to zip: skip all doesn't work.
« on: May 17, 2024, 14:45:54 »
I just double click on part 1 of the rar-set. If I don't use MC I get the PW dialog as expected. 

Hmm strange.. I can Navigate into the rar (multi rar archive). select files,  select copy.  asked for password.. enter password. and copy continues..
Not sure what is different.

yes search settings should be remembered

Thanks for info Mathias.
Could it be related to the build of RAR that was used to create the set?
I'll see if I have some old files & try them.
It might be if it is fully encrypted with encrypted files name or just the data.. with only data it can open the rar for browsing without password..

I see. Is that possible to use Alt or Shift as the modifier key? They are not used, right?
Please consider to follow the parameter convention. Currently, my programs can not recognize the file path.
Not sure what you talking about parameter convention..  The dropped file are sent as a parameter to the file it is dropped on. just like you would call it on the command line.
App.exe <Path of dropped file>

Normally doing this in MC would also bring up the PW dialog, now CTD & MC restart.  Tried again now on different set & got  1914-I115CF error.
Sent the error report.

OT
In the Search Dialog shouldn't selections be persistent?  I'm seeing file content check boxes lose the selection between uses. Or is this a change I've not noticed?

Sorry to be creating work for you Mathias...  ;)

Hi Mathias,

Is it possible to increase dimensions of Copy/Move window to fit, for example, full Polish translation? The same for "Advanced >>" button.
Please see the screenshot.

Could it be because it is a spanned .rar with pw? 
Error  1914-Y114TW in FSRAR.DLL (report sent)

Tested with rar that is splitted into mutliple files... it worked for me.
How do you unpack/copy the content from it ?

Sorry for the delayed reply Mathias. 
I did see the comment about error handling changes, so far that seems improved in speed & relevance. I should have added the crash ID above but I did send the report in.
I get a crash when trying to browse encrypted archives now, previously I would be asked for the PW - MC doesn't get to that now.  Crash  ID 1914-E114RS

This dialog & selection do not work, skip all = skip.

**whilst typing this a new build has appeared  ;D
Thanks Mathias, skip all working now, .rar with PW not working.

Something special with your rar archive ? for me it ask for pwd once. and then it unpack all files .

Thanks for the reply Mathias.
I was trying to sync a folder & had some matching files; dialog opens asks for input - skip overwrite etc, clicked skip all & it immediately opened the same dialog for every next matching file. I.e. skip all isn't working for me.  Using the portable MC I was able to complete the operations normally.

...& I have just tried a regular copy operation of dissimilar files & MC 3007 CTD'd, error report dialog opened & then also crashed.  ??? :o

I can use the current portable build OK. This seems to be related to this build as it is new behaior since the update. Guess I will try fresh install also.

** managed to get the error dialog to stay up, fault in MultiCommander.exe, report sent.

Yes as it say in change log for the beta.. Lots of changes around error handling. Problem is that people do not report errors.

You can now defines in advance what overwrite option you want and it will never ask you... if you select skip 'all there'. do that work ?

did it send crash report. any crash id ?

Same issue but not just for archives, drive to drive copy / move also affected. v14 b3007 W11 x64

I'm not able to update anything ATM, pdf, jpg, rar, zip etc all fail with the skip all failing to persist error. Bit of a problem when trying to back up stuff....   :(
I also noticed some strange behavior with rar crashing MC under some circumstances.  Will try to repeat it & send in a report.

Is it best to revert builds or is a fix due soon?  I can use the portable! Duh!  ;D
Can you give a example when skip does all does not work. what Overwrite options is active.. "Ask" ? so it ask. or "Skip all" so it should auto skip them ?

Support and Feedback / Re: FourCC column shows nothing
« on: May 07, 2024, 13:55:04 »
MC is using Windows Property system for getting Meta data for some of the properties. And "FourCC" is one of them. So look like Windows do not support getting all meta data from .mkv files. mp4 and some other formats works.
