I can't really test this since I don't have a russian setup.
But in the next beta turn on full app logging and check what keycodes are send for keysearch. it will be logged there and then let me know

Support and Feedback / Re: Scenario where TabSession cannot be closed
« on: October 21, 2020, 07:35:02 »
I propose that when a user in a non-tabsession state loads a saved tab session, the previously open non-session tabs get saved to disk. When a tab session is closed, those tabs could be reloaded instead of relying entirely on the previous autoload configuration (which causes the issues described below in bold). I believe this would give a much better experience to users who switch in and out of tab sessions: when closing a tab session, I think it makes sense to always return the user to their previous tabs.

Scenario #1: Without program restart
  • Have non-session tabs open, then load saved tab session.
  • Close tab session. Autoload tabs are restored and I am once again outside any tab session, which allows me to continue to modify these tabs and have them dynamically saved and re-loaded on program stop/start.
Scenario #2: With program restart
  • Have non-session tabs open, then load saved tab session.
  • Close and reopen program.
  • Close tab session. Tab session is effectively not closed, previous tabs are not restored, and I now cannot return to a state outside tab sessions without deleting the current tab session. This does not seem intended.

I now see that Scenario #1 also reloads the autoload configuration (as you pointed out). It would be nice if the previous tabs were restored instead, which would also be addressed by my proposal.

To answer the question on why I am closing TabSessions: I enjoy the dynamic save behavior outside tab sessions. I have tab sessions saved for long-term recurring tasks. I could create a general purpose TabSession, but the tabs would change very frequently and I may forget to always manually save that TabSession before closing the program.

Sould like you don't want it to autoload a tabsession at all, If you uncheck that the tabsession will autoload. Would not that solve your case. Because then when you close a tabsession it will return to previous state

Kind of hard for me to test that without anything to test against.
Also what kind of search filter is it. Name contains or wildcard search or regexp ?

Close TabSession will unload current tab session and then reload autoload configuartion. And if you got a TabSession set to autoload it will be reloaded,
Not sure what you expect to happen when you close a tabsession. Close all tabs and not open any new tabs ?
Normally you have many different tab session and you switch between them, Not sure what purpose a 'close tabsession' would solve.

Support and Feedback / Re: Tab path changing all the time?
« on: October 14, 2020, 08:36:46 »
If you do not want a tab to change path then you lock it and new tabs will be opened when you navigate out another folder.

The option  "Lock Tab - allow subpath change"  still allows you to navigate DOWN into subpath from the locked tab.

If you always want to open a set of tabs at specific location at startup. Then you can use TabSession and define what tabs should show what and set it to autoload

If you press the treeview button (next to the \ button on the free space row) it will be shown and you can specify in Explorer Panel Settings that the treeview should be shown by default for new tabs.

BUT showing only 1 panel in 0/100 mode is not support because MC is a dual panel File manager at its core design. Everything in MC is designed around that you have one source and and target panel.
By hiding one of the panels you are at risk at modifying things that are in the panel that are out of view without knowing it.
You can force it using startup script that change that it startup but that is at your own risk. Then you are using the program in a way it is not designed for.

Support and Feedback / Re: Find Files
« on: September 28, 2020, 07:47:31 »
Hard to follow what you write so not sure I understand.
You get the same result as first search when you do a second search with something different ?

I'm not able to recreate that.
Also 32 vs 64bit should not be able to return anything different. the code is the same. So very strange issue.
Can you specify what search paramter used so I can test used the same

Support and Feedback / Re: dragging a file over the tabs area.
« on: September 23, 2020, 11:04:41 »
Eh ? Not sure what you mean.. MC does not control how Windows handles the TaskBar.
But MC Control how the MC-Tabs working for Drag and Drop. Beware Off Topic: My Taskbar is always invisible and when i go with the mouse to the place where my taskbar is, the taskbar stay in the background. Only Win+T or closing all windows make the taskbar visible. (This configuration is only possible with 7+ taskbar tweaker) This help me to use the full screen without being disturbed from a taskbar-popup. But this is off topic, sorry. /off topic

My Tabs in MC are on the bottom and my taskbar is on top of the screen, therefore i have no such Problems like jean.
Not sure how the taskbar comes in here. The problem is when you have multiple tabs open in a panel in MC and you are dragging files another place (outside of MC or from another panel in MC) then when the mouse goes over the tab area in MC the active tab are changing.   Not sure how having the taskbar at the top solves that problem.

I could not find anything for ftp, no icon in the top bar with virtual devices, no entry in the drop down list.
After installing the previous version both are back.
Strange. Because it is there,
something might gone bad when you upgrade so the FTP FileSystem extension dll was not replaces or something..

Dragging between tabs in MC is not necessary. Drag and drop is needed to the windows Taskbar to put more than one files in some programs. Drag and drop over the windows Taskbar is more important than over the MC Tab Bar.
Eh ? Not sure what you mean.. MC does not control how Windows handles the TaskBar.

Thanks Mathias 2726 fixes it. :)

The GUI looks good with this makeover. Will you be able to make this quick-launch toolbar Dark also? 

FYI - I noticed that when making the filelist fields Dark the scroll bars stay Dark if/when reverting to original colors until MC is restarted.
The quick launchbar is dark..
ANd yes some UI elements cant be changed untils MC is restarted. After you enabled it there will be a dialog notifying about a restart is required if all UI element should change

Maybe you could make it so that if you press shift when dragging, it won't change the tab. That way one would have both ways.
It is planned. This is just the first step of it..  To do that more changes in other places was needed.. but it is coming ;)

2726 is out now. check it, should be fixed there

Sounds very strange. sounds like somethings is halting MC from working. Most things you say an app does not have direct control over, Windows kernal things is handling all that. like wakeing drives.
But it is hard say what can cause it without know the setup and conditions. since there are millions of reasons.

Yes I notice that the Entire Row QuickLaunch bar was not created.. It will be fixed in a new release today

Thank you again for the reply.
I don't know how to recreate it, other than it happened again multiple times yesterday.
Also, I *think* the copy is done, but it still accesses the target drives because I cannot eject them while those windows are on. Only when I end Commander will the drives be "released" for eject.
Btw, even though those are still open, I can start another Copy and it does not ask me to add the new Copy to the queue, so I guess that it considers its job done.
Look in Fileoperation log (core settings) and see if it is finished. sounds like MC is waiting for Windows to complete the writing
release them? so it is on removable drives ? USB connect HDs ? Flash memory ?

I have not really seen that.. I can recreate that..
Ssure the copy process is finished. What does the fileoperation log say (Ctrl+L) does it say the file copy is complete.
Sometimes it can look like it is finished because everything is written , but actually it is only written into the Windows cache.. And before the file is closed Windows will flush all data and make sure it is written. and that can take some times in some situations

MC are not handling the network stuff by it self. it is all handled by Windows, MC only see it as a path to remote drives.
And if network goes away. Windows does can not detect it instantly. And since network CAN be slow. Windows will wait until it gives up.. and MC will hang for a while if the call to windows hangs.
The way network work it can sometimes be impossible to not if the network device is gone or not. Because network can sometimes be slow and have issues

There are two auto close option.. One to do auto close and one to only do it for short/fast operations..  (maybe the second is also checked ?)

I have not seen the other issue. Not sure how that can happen.. Will write a note about it

That is by design. That is so you can drag files to folders located another tab
Currently you can not turn that off. maybe can be added
