Support and Feedback / Re: File/Folder Copy
« on: July 24, 2011, 20:22:36 »
Windows build in copy is NOT used.  Multi Commander using it's own. Have it's own buffers and ways of reading and writing.
For example if target and source is located on physical different drives, it is copying using async mode (Write data on target while at the same time it can read from the source)

It is possible to tweak how this should work.
In the Copy dialog you can "Options>>" and then "Advanced>>" and the Read/Write Strategy can be tweaked.
However... It is not recommend that anything is change here, unless you really know what you are doing..

After you opened the button editor, You need to click on the button you want to edit.
Then the editor will update and show the current state of that button. Then you can change it and then click on "update changes" to save the changes.

Don't really know if I understand.

If you stand in one location you want to show be able to change so it shown all files and folder and sub files/folders. Like a flat structure.

Eg if you have this tree structure.


then you would see


And if you select and copy File1.txt to G:\ it would keep the tree structure for file1.txt and
you would get G:\Folder2\SubFolder1\File1.txt

Is that what you mean ?

Yes hiding the file extension can be dangerous, I agree.
If showing the file extension in the 'ext' column is not what you want, you can have the file extension to be show in the filename or even in both columns.

Explorer Panel Settings->Layout.->File and Folder Display->File Extension :

3 options for that exists : 'Both in filename and ext field' , 'Only in filename field', 'only in ext field.'

List mode is planed and coming.

I done some test it it looks like sometimes to fails silently. and sometime you get a login dialog. Don't know why you don't get a login dialog evertime. However it if it fails it should not to it silently. So that is something I will change.

Activating logging does not do anything. There is not logging around the network connection code. Might be a good to also implement that.

I will take a look at the entire network thing. And make sure it handles errors better.

Jungle.. I will send you a private message.

Strange.  I get a login dialog here.

I will do some more testing and investigate why that could happen.

Double Items
It is some kind of timing issue. I'm not able to reproduce it here. But I will try to see if I can force it to happen someway.
If you have the time. I can send you a build of MultiCommander that output some logging about that it does when scanning the filesystem.

Hand Icon
I did some checking and Windows 7 does now support the hand icon anymore.

I rewrote the icon overlay handling a while ago, and overlay icons for the tortoiseSVN shell extension and others are working.
So I never notice that the hand icons stopped working since almost everybody testing MultiCommander was also running Win7.

I will take a look at it. Just need to find a win XP with develop environment on, but I think I got a vmware with that somewhere.

I seen that sometime my self on very rare occasion. But I never been able to reproduce it so I could debug it.

If you press F2 (refresh) it should fix that.

Couple of question of you have the time.

Have you listed "\\[your_computer_name]\d$" before in the same instance ?
MultiCommander does a lot of caching and if you listed it before that path might be cached in memory.
And the problem might be when it trying to update the cache.

Can something have updated the filesystem at "\\[your_computer_name]\d$" at the same time. (some program other then MultiCommander wrote a file, deleted a folder or sometime)
One theory I have is that the filesystem is change while browsing it, And that makes multicommander rescan it again. while already scanning it.  It should be protected against double scanning. but maybe there is a whole in the locking down of that.

Sorting in the tree view is always by filename. I had it follow the list view but got bad feedback on it. Most people wanted it to work as in Windows Explorer. I might include some option for it.

Hand icon on shares. I think it should be there. I know I seen it before, What OS are you running ?
Hmm on my current machine (Win7 64bit) I don't get a hand  (or other overlay icon) on folders that are shared when viewing in Windows Explorer.

Yes. That can be quite useful.

Should not be to hard to implement, So it will be there in the next release.

Yes you shown have gotten an error.

If you go to that path in windows explorer. Do you get an error then ?

I will have a look at it.

"Took me too long to find how to start the folder tree on a single explorer window, but I found it"

Strange that you "found it". Because that is not supported. Kind of makes the program a bit unusable because the whole idé of the commander style is two have 2 panels. A source and target panel.

Multi Commmander does not hides any file extension. You even got an own column for it. Only way to change that is to remove that column. and configure it not to show a file extension.

I'll have to manually re-enter all 15 or so registry entries that FORCE file extensions to be visible.
Multi Commander does NOT change anything in the registry for windows, or changing any file extension association.

Your product isn't exactly safe.
It is a file manager.  A product thats allows you to remove,delete,rename files can't be safe. Nothing is changed/removed by it self.
Its all up to the of the user.


It will work in the next version.

(The other search issue you found is also fixed now)

You can select the difference of two folders, So the files that differs are selected. But a complete file/folder synchronization is not implemented yet, But it is very high up on the list of features to be include.

Looks like Hex search have stopped working. I will take a look at it.

You are correct.

I was able to reproduce it now. I will have a look at it.

Thanks for reporting this.

I have no problem accessing mine.

I need more information to be able to figure out what your problem is.

Lesmo16 was right, It was storing session information on the host computer.

A check that was checking if Multi Commander was registered or not was still left in after the change to free edition.
And it made it still store session information on the host computer. But that is now fixed.

Update to the latest beta and it should work. (At least build 789)

(How to download beta version)

I'm not able to reproduce it.

I think that I seen that happen before. Think it happens sometimes but not always.

Will keep an eye out for it.

Are the NAS or network shares mounted ?

Can you access it as \\server\share or just \\server ?

Support and Feedback / Re: Explorer Panel - List View
« on: July 15, 2011, 09:55:56 »
No not yet.

At the moment only "detailed view" is supported.

More view modes are on the todo list and will be added in the future.

It should be possible and it have worked like that before.

I will check it out later and see if anything changed.

When transferring Multi Commander to the Portable (USB) Device using the tool inside Multi Commander, Multi Commander is configured to store all settings and configuration and everything other personal data that Multi Commander saves on the portable device and not the host computer.

If you want to create translations of texts used Multi Commander you can do that in 2 ways. Using the built in language editor or by editing the language files manually using your favorite text editor.

Getting Started
All language files are stored as language packs. If you want to submit the changes you should not unpack them and edit them.
What you do is to start the built in language editor. This in Unpack all language files into the userdata location.
After that you can edit the unpacked files. When done select Export/Send from the language editor to generate a new language pack.
The Generated language that is sent to be included/update in MC has a different structure then the file layout you see and the layout of the Language Pack.
So thats why you should use the built in Export/Send function. even if you edit the files externally.

Add Support for New Language
Open the Language Editor and in the language list select "Add New Language"
A dialog will be shown where you specify the name and properties of the language.
(Make sure that culture name code is provided, Without it the language will not work)

Add Support for New Language - Manually
Open the Language Editor so that the language files are unpack.
Then go to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MultiCommander\UserData\Languages\ and add en entry in the SupportedLanguages.xml file

Translate - Built in editor
Start the language editor by starting "Menu->Extensions->Language Editor"

You will see 3 dropdown lists. The first is Plugin type, second is Plugin/Extension, third is Language.
When you select a language other then English you will see the English text in italic and red color.
and when you writing a translation an item will turn black and bold. Bold indicate items that are changed but not saved.

The category name is just placeholders and do not need to be translated.

If an text item is not translated Multi Commander will fall back to the English file for that text item.

The language file will be save as "<AppOrPluginName>_lang_<culture code>.xml" ( eg. MultiCommander_lang_de.xml )

Not all text must be translated for it to work. When running Multi Commander with none-English language set. If it does not find a text string in the set language it will fall back and use the English for that string.

Translate - Alternative way
If you want to edit the files using an external editor. You first need to duplicate the english files.

When opening the language editor it will unpack the language file into C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\MultiCommander\UserData\Languages\
(or type ":gouserdata" in the command line field)

Then search the for all "*_lang.en.xml" file and then copy them.
Then rename them with the correct "culture name" code  (For example for german that would be *_lang_de.xml, for swedish it is *_lang_se.xml )
Then after that you can edit them using any text/xml editor.
Just make sure the file are save using UTF-8 is there are any special characters.

If you do not translate one text item. Then remove that item from your translated language files. Do not keep it in english in your translated file. Because MC will automatically pick up the english text if a translated item does not exists. Also you will easily find what text are missing translation later on if you open the built in language editor. Since all text that are missing translation is shown in red.

Generate Language Pack
To generate a language pack file that contains all the language files for a specific language, Press the "Export" button in the language editor. It will generate a language pack zip file with all the language file for the selected language. The files in the zip file are organized in a way to fit the build process of Multi Commander. So when sending in a Language pack to be included into the release. This format is preferred.

Submit Language Changes
If you create a new translation for Multi Commander we would be happy to included that into the installation of Multi Commander.
Even if the translation is not 100% complete we will accept it into the release.

First make sure the language you want to export/send is the selected one. Then press the Export/Send button.
You will now see an export dialog that allows for a couple of options on language pack format and how to submit it.
When submitting a language pack to be included into Multi Commander you must select one of the "Internal format ..." options.

Submit - Using File
If you want to the language pack in a file that you can send your self, Then select "Internal Format (Submit to developer using E-mail)"
You then send that file to me using email

Submit - Using HTTP
You can also have Multi Commander submit the language directly to the server. Then select "Internal Format (Submit to developer using HTTP)"
When submitting using HTTP you will also have to enter an Submit Key on the submit page that is shown when you press OK.

If you do not have an Submit key, Send me an e-mail and I will give you an personal submit key to use.
