Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Misc requests
« on: November 11, 2019, 07:50:05 »
Since requests started here...

1. Now when unpacking password-protected 7z-archive with encrypted filenames, MC asks password 3 times. It would be good to see password prompt only once.

2. Now if archive contains sub-archives, MC only goes inside top-level archive. Then it unpacks packed archive and (seems to) redirect it to the system although it is supported by MC. E.g. if there is a zip inside 7z, MC will go into 7z, but zip will be opened in Winows' Explorer. If there's a rar inside 7z, nothing will happen (probably because there is no app associated with *.rar files in my system). So it would be great if MC could go through all sub-archives.

3. External archive profiles.

4. Some kind of status info for a focused file in the List mode.

Could you add a screenshot with the place where I need to add it, please?

You may create user command, set it to MC.Explorer.Copy and provide it with NODIALOG parameter.

If these folders are inside one parent-folder you may switch to Flat View (Ctrl+Shift+B), select files and launch MultiRename (Menu Extensions > MultiRename).

Create user defined command, assign hotkey to it and then add this command to the quicklaunch bar or buttons panel

Go to Menu Configuration > Explorer Panel Settings, then Display tab, scroll to Save on exit
Try uncheck Remember only paths to local harddrives

Additionally, what's the difference between Remove link target and link to Remove link, not target?

1. Create temporary folder (you may optionally copy some test files there)
2. Create a couple of Junctions (Tools > File Links > Create Links...) to that folder
3. Try delete one of the junctions with Remove link, not target option
4. Try delete other junction with Remove link target and link option

You may use regular expressions, e.g.
Code: [Select]
(\d*)\s(\1)(.*)|$1$3So it would look like on attached screenshot

I'm not sure I understand you right, but in MC you can define different applications for viewing, launching and editing. I.e. you may view (F3) *.txt with AkelPad, edit (F4) with PSPad and launch (Enter, Doubleclick) with default windows app.

Or do you mean TC-like behaviour where launch (Enter, Doubleclick) can show pop-up menu with multiple open-with entries?

Confirm. The issue exists.


There's also issue with [Copy] button in the User defined commands dialog. When I press [Copy] new command is created, but some fields are shown empty. E.g. if source command is "Internal command" then copy will show empty fields "Module" and "Command". If source is "Custom commands" then copy will show empty "Command". In fact they are not empty and after saving will be shown correctly, but it's a bit confusing.

Please implement External Packers support in packer profiles.

P.S. There's minor issue with packer profiles.

1. Add new profile and
2. Immediately remove it

Result: Profile is removed, the first existing is loaded, but its name remains from the removed one, so MC asks to save chaged profile.

Support and Feedback / Re: Correct Folder Date/Time No Longer Works
« on: August 03, 2019, 13:31:33 »
Correct folder date/time works for me but only partially. It only applies datetime of the newest file but not folder. E.g. if there is a file with 08.03.2019 12:03 and a folder with 08.03.2019 12:05, then after correcting parent folder will have datetime 08.03.2019 12:03 instead of 08.03.2019 12:05

Another FR.

There're 2 folders: folder1 and folder2. If I rename folder2 to folder1 I'd like contents of folder2 to be moved (asked) to folder1, like Windows does.

It still shows [Release Candidate] in the window caption.

Support and Feedback / Packing with custom extension issue
« on: June 26, 2019, 13:03:31 »
There's a minor problem. If custom extension is set in pack dialog, no packing occurs. Instead MC creates a folder with new name and copies files there.
E.g. if I set archive name to X:\temp\archive.zzz instead of X:\temp\, MC will create X:\temp\archive.zzz\ folder.

AFAIK, there's no official way.

Maybe I do something in a wrong way, but look at the pic

1. It seems that MC fails to calculate SHA-256/512 checksums
2. For SHA-512 no caption is displayed in the checksum tree

MC v8.3.2469

Support and Feedback / Re: Search hidden files
« on: April 16, 2019, 07:10:10 »
It works, at least in v8.3.2469. Open search (via menu/hotkey/...), press [Advanced] button, go to [Date/Size/Attributes] tab, check Hidden attribute and start search.

One of the ways is to use MultiScript. E.g. the following script changes destination files last write time to the one of the source files.
Code: [Select]
@var $src_path = GetSourcePath();
@var $dst_path = GetTargetPath();

if ( $src_path == $dst_path )
  return -1;

@var $src_sel = GetSourceSelectedFileNames();
@var $n;
@var $src_file;
@var $dst_file;
@var $time;

for ( $n = 0; $n < arrayCount( $src_sel ); $n++ )
  $src_file = $src_path ^ $src_sel[ $n ];
  if ( IsFolder( $src_file ) )

  $dst_file = $dst_path ^ $src_sel[ $n ];

  if ( FileExists( $dst_file ) )
    $time = GetFileTime( $src_file );
    SetFileTime( $dst_file, $time );
But this script works for manually selected files within two folders. It's not much harder to automatically find all mismatching files as long as two folders are compared. But if you want to sync whole folders structure it would require [significantly] more work.

Maybe a compact (optional) floating window with all active operations, which could be minimized/restored to/from that window? Like external status bar. But I guess it is not an easy task.

One know issue is that if the search is taking long time to scan and it does not find anything for a long time. You do not really see that anything is happening.
It looks like it might have stalled. but it has not.
I have not really decided on how to show that it is still working yet.  So if you got a cleaver idea. feel free to post it.
What about "endless"/marquee progress bar llike when calculating folder size?

Some locale strings are hardcoded in .exe. E.g. "Result options", "List result in"...
Could you please check all new locale strings and move them to lang files before RC?

P.S. Some strings only present in MultiCommander_def.xml. E.g. "Extended filesystem scanning logging" from Core settings
