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

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.

Support and Feedback / Checksum calculation issue
« on: June 05, 2019, 08:21:48 »
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

Please consider implementing Resume operation for copy/move in Already Exists Dialog. So only remaining part of source file would be appended to the target file (instead of whole file like Append operation does).

It might be an item in [More >>] menu. E.g. when target file has less size than source, that item would be enabled, otherwise it would be disabled.

E.g. i have the following file/dir structure:
Code: [Select]

If i set pack filter to "-*.txt" then archive will not have txt folder. But i want that folder to be in the archive even it's empty. What is the proper filter?

Support and Feedback / Add MultiRename Tag dialog is untranslatable
« on: February 01, 2014, 11:20:56 »
Add MultiRename Tag dialog is untranslatable. I mean dialog appearing when you press [<] button and then choose Plugin and more menu item.

And i think that property type and value should be delimited. E.g. now it looks like Standard Name. I suggest to make it look like Standard: Name or Standard - Name or similar.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Tray menu improvement
« on: January 31, 2014, 17:42:27 »
If Show icon option is enabled and sub-options are disabled, MC is minimized to the task bar. In that case Open Multi Commander menu item in tray menu does nothing. I suggest to make it restore MC.

Support and Feedback / File coloring bugs
« on: January 30, 2014, 13:25:03 »
One more bug. If there're more than one profile, [Default] will not be applied after restart. Previous will be applied instead.
So if i have profiles [Default], test1, test2, selected e.g. test2, then selected [Default], then restart MC and get test2 profile applied.


And a bug in choose colors dialogs. When you choose Invert, Text color is set to black.

Support and Feedback / Bugs of CopyFile script function
« on: January 23, 2014, 12:24:11 »
I have the following script:

Code: [Select]
@var $dst = GetTargetFocusPath();
@var $src = GetSourceFocusPath();

CopyFile( $dst, $src, "" );

Target focused path is E:\temp\_mc_test\1, source focused path is E:\temp\_mc_test\2.

Debugger shows:
Code: [Select]
$dst  string  E:\temp\_mc_test\1
$src  string  E:\temp\_mc_test\2

Bug #1. When dialog appears, target path is E:\temp\_mc_test\ instead of E:\temp\_mc_test\1 (so if "NODIALOG" parameter is passed to CopyFile, error occurs "...Can not copy a file to itself").

Bug #2.  MC crashes when [Cancel] button is pressed in this copy dialog. It happens if copy was called from debugger.

Now assign this script to a QuickLaunch button. Enable Allow - Rearrange of buttons option for QL bar.

Bug #3. After copy dialog appears, this button will move over QL bar following mouse cursor (even if cursor is outside QL). Now:
  a) if you press Esc copy dialog will be closed and the button will take new position;
  b) if you click somewhere outside QL bar the button will take previous position and keep focus cursor around itself;

It would be great if CopyFile/MoveFile functions could accept string arrays for targetPath and sourceFile.
So it would be possible to copy items to multiple folders and get less warning messages.

P.S. Maybe also add new parameter "NEWQUEUE" to force creating new queue.

1. [Create new coloring profile and] add a rule.
2. Set it to Attributes :: Has :: D
3. Set some background color, e.g. green.
4. Save and close coloring wizard.

Result: both panels now have green-colored folders

5. Now go to wizard and uncheck that rule.
6. Save and close.

Result: coloring is refreshed only for active panel.

Support and Feedback / Can't drag'n'drop to folder shortcuts
« on: January 14, 2014, 07:52:00 »
1. If i create shortcut of a folder, it looks like a file shortcut
2. I can't drag'n'drop items to folder shortcut (it is possible in Windows Explorer)

Beta Releases / [3.9.9] Issues
« on: December 17, 2013, 06:15:05 »
File types.

1. Icon in "View"/"Edit" tabs is not displayed if icon file path is relative or enclosed by quotes (see pic1)

2. Icon in "Icons" tab, "Extensions" column is not displayed if icon file path is enclosed by quotes (see pic2)

3. Icon is not applied (to file list) if icon file path is enclosed by quotes

4. If you add new extension in "Icons" tab, then "Override" icon for that file type in "View"/"Edit" tabs, you will see only one entry in the "Icons" tab until MC restart. If you uncheck "Override" again (before restart), this entry will disappear from Icons list.

5. If you create new entry in e.g. "Edit" tab, type extensions or/and parameters and then choose path to program, extensions and parameters will be cleared.

6. It's a little bit confusing that in "Icons" tab extension should be typed without "*." (e.g. txt) whereas everywhere else it should be typed with "*." (e.g. *.txt)

7. Custom icons are only applied after MC restart, but there are no any warning.

See pic.
Last file column is not fully visible (it has smaller width than previous).
I'd like MC to automatically scroll file list when file cursor moves to such "partial" column.

Support and Feedback / Issue with copy to existing file
« on: October 22, 2013, 10:17:53 »
E.g. i have two panels with the same folder x:\temp, and there are 2 files there:
Code: [Select]
I want to copy file_bak.txt to file.txt (replace). But after copying file.txt remains, instead file.txt (1) is created which is the copy of file_bak.txt. No overwrite dialog appears.

1. Open some archive on a flash drive
2. Start copying files from that archive
3. Switch from copy queue to MC.

Result: file list remains empty (see pic) until copy is finished.

Is it a bug?

Beta Releases / 1470 issues and questions
« on: August 17, 2013, 20:26:10 »
1. Keyboard customization dialog captions "Hotkey" and "Name tag" seem to miss translation strings.

2. Delete dialog does'n use localized string for caption at the start. E.g. try to delete non-empty folder. Warning dialog will be shown. At this time delete dialog has caption "Deleting".

3. I don't understand the purpose of putting options "Continue on error" and "Delete all" in delete dialog.
  a) if there are many "problematic" files (ro/hidden/system) you will simply have no time to check them;
  b) buttons "Skip all", "Delete all" in error dialog should act exactly as if those options were enabled.

So instead of one properly working scheme there are now two partially working schemes. Btw, there is the same problem with copy/move dialog. If there're many blocked files you always need to confirm skip/delete partial. Try to copy e.g. "Documents and settings" folder (Win XP).

4. Color rules dialog is non-localizable

5. When i press "Add" button in color rules dialog, MC freezes and can't be killed.

Support and Feedback / Folder sorting issue
« on: July 12, 2013, 15:27:29 »
I've enabled separate sorting for files and folders, always sort folders by name. Folders which begins with non-alphanumeric characters are shown in the end. E.g.
Code: [Select]
Test Folder

But "!" and "#" precedes alphanumeric characters, so they should be at the top:
Code: [Select]
Test Folder

Is this by design?

Support and Feedback / Some localization issues in 3.2.1
« on: July 04, 2013, 07:30:44 »
1. It seems that additional columns like comment for pictures or tags for music can't be displayed in unicode

2. Column sets are stored in the settings with current localized captions, so when you change MC language, columns will be displayed in other language

Support and Feedback / MultiScript - GetTime Broken
« on: May 02, 2013, 13:48:27 »
Btw  "GetTime(1);" will return UTC time..

As you can see on the pic, both GetTime() and GetTime(1) return the same value

Beta Releases / Bugs (or misbehaviour) in 3.1.0 b1400
« on: April 26, 2013, 05:32:29 »
1. Since b1379 there are two file cursors - in each file panel

2. Since b1379 hovering (file cursor follows mouse) works for inactive panel too. In earlier builds it worked only in active panel.

3. There is a bug with cursor following mouse pointer (hovering).
 a. Set small wait time (20 ms)
 b. Create quicklaunch button which accepts files as parameters (e.g. notepad)
 c. Drop some file(s) to that button
 d. Close application (notepad)
 e. Move mouse to MC but don't click, then move it over files/folders
 Result: cursor following for active tab (from which files were dropped) is broken. Wait time is not 20ms.
 f. Now click on the Explorer panel.
 g. Move mouse over files/folders
 Result: cursor following is restored. Wait time is 20 ms again.

4. Changelog says that SetActiveTab support /PREV /NEXT params, but they are seem to be missing in custom commands

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Proxy support for FTP
« on: March 01, 2013, 08:26:24 »
Is it possible to add proxy support for FTP connection? E.g. system settings may be used.

Support and Feedback / How can i disconnect from FTP?

How can i disconnect from FTP? It seems there is neither popup menu item nor hotkey.

Support and Feedback / Bugs with selection
« on: January 11, 2013, 13:07:47 »
Applies to 2.7.2, 2.8.1 and 3.0 (32/64-bit); Commander style, both default and modified settings, all view modes (list/details/thumb)

I. Selection remains after copying

1. Move cursor to the first file in a folder
2. Press Shift+End
3. Copy files

Result: After copiyng selection remains until you move file cursor. The same happens if you press Shift+Home from the last file in a folder.
But if you move file cursor before copying, selection is cleared after operation.

II. Not all files selected

1. Move cursor to the last file in a folder
2. Press Shift+Home
3. Copy files
4. Repeat steps 1 and 2

Result: Not all files selected. More often there is only first file selected.

1. Start copy operation of large directory (e.g. Program Files)
2. Start second copy operation of other large directory (e.g. Windows) and add it to existing queue
3. Go to copy operation dialog and try abort operation while it is preapring

Result: operation can not be aborted until preparing is finished.
