Not sure what you mean ?

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Support for iso files
« on: January 29, 2024, 07:36:07 »
7Zip the program (their FileManager) and support for .7z algorithm are different.  MC support .7z files, the 7Zip algorithm.
ISO file are something totally different. it is a RAW image of a disk or CD/DVD.

But since Windows 7, you can just mount ISO file in Windows, and a drive letter is assigned to it, and any program can read from them.

Alright, thanks for clarifying ! :D
P.S: I tested, it doesn't work on WAV. But that's O.K.
Right now MC only allow .mp3 files. so MC block any other file at the moment..  But I think the Windows Audio Engine support Wav.. But I have not checked what formats it supports yet.

I Know..  it is haft there..
however File > Play audio works.. it wil play file mp3 file in focus..
but only for mp3 for now.. not sure if wav will work. using build in support for windows for it. Might be that Wav is also support. Have not checked yet

Not exactly the right thread but using MC 13.5 b2982 x64 W11 I'm seeing MC refuse to open .rars.

Otherwise so far so good ;)
Thanks for your continuing work Mathias

Ahh F...!!!  I know what I missed.. I will fix and re-Release..

I reassigned Rename from default Shift+F6 to F2. At the first launch after update to 13.4 both shortcuts stopped working. And AFAIR Rename item disappeared from the keyboard customization dialog (but I'm not sure). But I was unable to find there neither F2 nor Shift+F6. After restart everything came back to normal state.

Sound like it is a race condition.. file is already loaded into Windows cache the second time and the loading goes faster, so it able to load the file before it setups the commands..

I don't want to create new topic...

Hang on exit still an issue, I guess maybe 4 of 5 exits leave the window hanging & unresponsive.

For me it still exists. And it seemingly doesn't depend on antivirus. IIRC it started happening since v13

The dumps I seen about it, then MC is waiting for windows to close down file change monitoring on some path. So it might be that it is some path to some special locations that cause an issue ?
Not sure if it hangs in same place for you.  But I haven't seen anything other reason.. yet..

I have never been able to reproduce it my self. So There must be something special with some peoples system that make Windows take long time unregister folders for change monitoring..

Is it all keys or some ?
I have not been able to reproduce it.  But it loads keys and other things parallel during start up so it can be a race condition.. it can be that some commands are setup before all customized keys are finished loaded. I will move around so customized keys are loaded earlier for the next release.

Not much for MC to do about that. MC do not have any control of the standard windows option. They are all handled by Windows.
It is up the shell extension that adds them to the menu to handle the execution of the command. and some shell extension require that the calling app is a Windows Shell window. and MC is not built on top of that.

Maybe it is not files you are dragging. Some program send drag and drop data as special things that are not handled as files.. drops like that are handled different and is not a normal file copy

I cannot replicate that.. I works when I try it.
Sure you have uncheck the option in drag and drop settings ?

Look at

Support and Feedback / Re: How to disable preview?
« on: December 22, 2023, 09:48:56 »
It is NOT ON by default.. you have to click icon on toolbar or press hot key to activate it. and it will not stay on between restarts.
The data preview is not something you use 100%.  You click to active it. when you need it.
And you can clear the hotkey mapping of you use that hotkey for activating it for other things
So I don't understand what issue you have with it since it not enabled by default.

Look like Microsoft change how some items are registered. On my Win11 it works. I have not had time to dig into what exactly is different on some system.

However a faster way to create a new empty file is to write "cf <filename>" in the command line field. A empty file with that name is then created

Also searching online you will find ways to add it the Win10 way.

Support and Feedback / Re: Optimization in List view
« on: December 12, 2023, 13:21:04 »
It is important to quckly see date, time, size in the footer of the panel for List view, always in exactly the same spot.
Other older orthodox file managers had this implemented 30 years ago. So there was a use for it. It is not so practical for users to keep changing the view to see what they should see without changing anything.

See, that is how open sourcing would help the project. MC is nice and there is a lot that could be praised about it. But it is the vision of one man. It is what you want, not what people want. Open sourcing would make it (in time, of course) what you want AND what I want AND what others want. And this would bring maturity to the project.

In the upper right side of this forum I see "File Managment For Professionals". So maturity is to be expected from MC. By the way, there is a spelling error in that.

Then use detailed mode. :) it is much better anyway. I never use List view..(maybe why it lack features.. I never use it my self. ;) )
also many other might have had that a long time. But MC also had many things they do not have.

Open source would not help. As I said.. Nobody would contribute a major things that require architectural changes of the code.
Even if there was somebody willing to do it. it would require me LOTS of work do transfer everything to be open source.. and that is time that do not exists

However.... It is actually on the list.. but time is limited and it been pushed down. But some of the architectural changes are now done when Preview handing was added in previous releases so now it higher possibility for it to show up.

And Yes there are many spelling errors I know :)  If I ever get the time I will fix them. Right now the time I can spend on this is very limited.

When panel is in List view, it is important to be able to see date, time and size for files under cursor. MC does not do that by default. Can it be configured?
That was detailed mode are for. so currently not there in list view
You can enable hover preview or preview panel, then that info is shown there

Just because something is open source does not mean many developers will join.. Most open project does hardly get any external contributors.
Look at DC as you mention.. 90-95% of all commit is from 1 person. 
And then you need to verify everything that people want to contribute. And you loose control and people can fork it and release there own version of it and then there are multiple version out there. and user can trust what version is the offical.
Bad people can easily create a version containing malware, and it will hurt the reputation of the official version.
And the project then would also only be able to use other open source project, limiting in what 3rd party software you can use.  Would require some parts of MC to be rewritten.
Also MC codebase is huge, very few developer would want to spend the time to understand the architecture.

However.... some "parts" from MC is planned to be open.. So I think parts and extensions can be open..

correct , MC do not decode all file format there are. It is too big of a scope. It looks for the file content flat.

« on: December 09, 2023, 00:53:15 »
not sure I understand what you mean... but if you right click on the filter button next to the filter field. you got two options if it should remember filter and if it should reset it

Thanks for looking at this again Mathias.

Sorry for the misinterpretation of what you needed. 
I've created a dump from 2967.
Still getting 502 when I try to upload :(  so have sent you a link via contact form.

It hangs when trying to stop monitor folders for changes.
MC normally ask windows to tell MC if folder X is changed. When closing MC, MC tells windows to stop doing that for MC and it hangs and Windows do not gives as response.
I reply on your mail with what folder it is.. Maybe it is somethings special with that folder on your system

No what I meant was that the debug symbols I got did not match.. I think the dump was from a beta version where that did not have saved debug symbols correctly. Had some build issue on my build server.
But if you create a new dump from build 2967, then I should have dbg symbols that are matching.

With correct symbols it will resolve all of the " MultiCommander+0x4d81c7  "to the correct code functions, and I can see where it hangs..
