Will you commit your changes to the QL GitHub ?
I'll try. Or will ask the author to merge the changes.

@jfmoyen,

AFAIK Space is the default (and the only) hotkey registered by QL itself to open and close preview. I tested 3 cases:

1) launch QL, then press Space in MC and navigate: everything looks fine;
2) create User Defined Command MC.Run CMD="x:\ql_path\quicklook.exe" ARG="${focusfilepath}", assign some hotkey: fine
3) create new profile in File Type Setup / Viewers (F3 default): fine

Fine means that preview appears and stays until manually closed. I tested it on Win10 and Win11 (real and VM). I can only suppose that Space is somehow pressed twice making QL close preview (as long as Space is used for both open and close preview)

@jfmoyen,
Well, I've made QL to monitor MC. Here's the files. Archive contains only updated binaries along with source files, so you can build QL yourself. Password is QuickLook

I see, so the "issue" (if it is an issue) should be fixed from QL side then, by having it watching more managers...
It's not an issue. Unfortunately, adding custom file manager support can't be done by creating independent dll. This would require to change QuickLook.Native project. But the first impression makes me think that adding MC support to QL shouldn't be hard for someone who has Visual Studio installed.

Now of course I have no idea how they do it.
I've taken a look at the sources, and from what I've seen and understood, QuickLook constantly monitors active window and tries to get selection from it if the window type matches supported managers (explorer, dopus etc.)

I think that the easiest way would be to allow external app in the preview setup.

Another way - events. Multiple times I wanted to suggest this feature but I'm not sure it's worth the efforts. The point is to allow executing scripts/UDC on certain events like MC start/exit, change file focus, opening/closing tabs, begin/end file operations etc. But I don't think it would be useful.

Support and Feedback / Re: Saving of panel widths not working.

I'm not sure I've understood you correctly, but if you mean the widths of the Left/Right explorer panels, then there's an option:
Code: [Select]
Core Settings > Layout > Application Layout > Panel Tab > Remember split size between restarts

Beta Releases / Re: v13.4 Beta
« on: January 25, 2024, 17:59:07 »
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

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.

I know it's not the same, but you can set up and access quick paths in MC via Favorites (star icon). They can also be accessed via Favorites in the drives drop-down menu

Is it only MC-related issue or other apps are also affected?

Support and Feedback / Re: Files are selected when using Drag&Drop
« on: October 24, 2023, 18:04:37 »
Sorry,I typed the wrong option. You should check “Configuration - Explorer Panel Settings - Display - Selection and Checking of items - Unselect other files and folders when single selecting”

And now it is impossible to select multiple files. What magmalive (and me too) would like to see is clearing selection after drag'n'drop.

1. Open Multiscript debugger
2. Invoke some function which waits for user response (e.g. AskText);
3. Close Multiscript debugger
4. Close dialog box shown by AskText

Result: MC freezes.

Support and Feedback / Re: Create URL shortcut?
« on: October 23, 2023, 20:55:59 »
JPCoetzee, try this MultiScript

Code: [Select]
@var $shortcut_name = AskText( "Enter shortcut name:", "", 0 );

if ( 0 == StrLen( $shortcut_name ) )
{
  return;
}

//@var $url_name = GetClipboardText();
@var $url_name = "";

$url_name = AskText( "Enter shortcut URL:", $url_name, 0 );

if ( 0 == StrLen( $url_name ) )
{
  return;
}


$shortcut_name = GetSourcePath() ^ $shortcut_name + ".url";
$url_name = "URL=" + $url_name;

@var $content[];

arrayAdd( $content, "[InternetShortcut]" );
arrayAdd( $content, $url_name );

@var $result = SaveArray( $shortcut_name, $content, 0, 1 );

if ( 0 == $result )
{
  MessageBox( "Error", "URL shortcut was not created!", 0 );
}

You can manage sessions via File > Tab sessions

Open desired tabs, then save this session. In menu File > Tab sessions choose Manage... you can now select this session and mark it as startup

URL shortcut to a file? Could you explain in details? It might be possible via MultiScript.

You may create user defined command of type "Multi-Script" and bind it a to a shortcut or/and put it to the quicklaunch bar or button bar.

Code: [Select]
@var $src_path = GetSourcePath();
@var $names = GetSourceItems();

@var $count = arrayCount( $names );
@var $i;

for( $i = 0; $i < $count; $i++ )
{
  @var $file = $src_path ^ $names[ $i ];
  @var $result = FileExists( $file );
 
  if ( 1 == $result )
  {
    MC.Explorer.SetItemFocus ITEM="{$names[ $i ]}"
    break;
  }
}

I'm not sure about performance in case of too many files/folders. Also I haven't tested it with different sorting styles.

I've enabled hidden/system files showing, so they're displayed in the explorer panels and can be obtained via MultiScript function GetSourceItems().

But there're some files like e.g. pagefile.sys and swapfile.sys which "don't exist" for the FileExists() function. It means that function returns 0. I consider it a bug. As long as they exist in the filesystem and MC is able to "see" them, they should as well be visible to FileExists() function (and to others possibly affected).

I've created a password-protected *.7z archive via 7z File Manager (official GUI).

When I enter such archive and try to copy some file via F5, password dialog appears which shows entered symbols instead of "*"

If I enter wrong password, MC freezes

I have a bitlocker password-protected drive. When I connect and try to access it via MC, nothing happens. When I try to access it via Windows Explorer, Bitlocker password dialog appears. After unblocking the drive becomes available in MC.

Is it possible to add this behaviour to MC?

1. Attempt to access a drive
2. Invoke password dialog
3. If unblocked -> show drive contents

I've created a password-protected *.7z archive via 7z File Manager (official GUI).

When I enter such archive and try to copy some file via F5, password dialog appears which shows entered symbols instead of "*"

If I don't enter an archive but unpack it via Alt+F6, password dialog shows "*"

I've also created a password-protected *.zip archive via 7z File Manager (official GUI).

When I enter such archive and try to copy some file via F5, password dialog appears. If I press Esc, password dialog reappears.

If I don't enter an archive but unpack it via Alt+F6, password dialog is correctly closed via Esc and is not reshown.

1. Enable hover preview
2. Move the mouse over some pdf file and wait for preview to appear

Results:
  • preview window can't be closed neither by Esc nor by moving the mouse over other files (even in the opposite panel);
  • it stays on top even after switching to other application;
  • it disappears after closing the tab (Ctrl+W);
  • after closing the tab Hover Preview no longer works for that panel (but still works for the opposite one).
P.S. I haven't changed the settings. Just updated MC from the previous version and left everything "as is".

1. Open some txt file in MDV
2. Type some text in the "Find" field
3. Press Ctrl+A

Expected: all the text in the "Find" field is selected
Result: all the text in the view area is selected
