Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Onedrive sync icons

It shows that in Windows Explorer. I need a way to get that info from code. I have not investigated it in a while so there might be a way now. Not sure. I will add a investigation task for my self and see if I can find a way

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Google Drive support?

Then they have changed it since I last looked (a while ago) I will put it on my list to check it again and if that is a reliable way to get the path.


Yes. It is a issue that can happens on some setup. It is a timing issue and kind of impossible to recreate.
It happens when a rescan of the filesystem is triggered at the exact moment when other scan is just completed and is updating the cache.
There should be guards again that. But they are some gaps that I can't find and since I can't recreate it I'm tweaking that in the blind.

But a force refresh will fix it.

Just for some info. Is just some folders ? same drives ?  It is system very fast or slow ? Many multi cores CPU or less cores  ?
Are there something external that are doing lots of updates of the filesystem at the sametime ?
or any other info that might be of relavens ?

Sorry. It is not as easy like that,  MC is a very complex there is almost over 1M lines of codes. (3rd party code not included)
Also It would require to much time to manage and such. And everything that somebody else wrote needed to be reviewed and stuff.  It would take so much time.

Well the notification of new comments are sometimes lost among the the spam

But then why not bring some trusted people in your MC development team?
You could have them work on specific parts of the software for you and/or
help you with MC support.
This would help you boost both MC development and your project managing skills.
Have you thought about this?

Even if you find people wanting to code for free, It would require a lot of time to teach and manager it.
Going open source is not really and option for various reason. Also just because a project is open source does not mean that a lot of people want to work on it for free.
Most open source project only have contributes from the original author.  Only a very few project got contributions from a wider group. Specially complex programs like this.
So Sorry, going that way is not a option

Support and Feedback / Re: Sort files by date and filetype
« on: November 07, 2018, 14:59:17 »
Multi column sorting it not supported.. It is something I have on my list, It will probably be added as a script command first, Since add UI for it will take more time.

I actually missed this question.

Might be possible to add an option like. I add it to the list, and if it is not to time consumine I might be able to add it.

And No..  MC is not abandonen. I know it almost look like it.  BUT the time I can spend on it is less then before becuse of my day job.
Also I been working an some fundamental changes that have taken a lot longer them estimated. since it was a lot more complicated to implement then planned.
When that change are in place add some other major features will be easier. I think..

Support and Feedback / Re: MutiCommander SE (Store Edition)
« on: October 30, 2018, 08:38:35 »
It got stuck in submission process. And I did not have time to fix what needed to be fixed at the time.
I got a post-it on the  side of my monitor saying  "Fix Store Edition" It been there for a while now :(
Since almost nobody is using the store edition it have not been a prioroty. But I think I need to take the time to fix that,

Problem is that a certificate cost a lot of money and must be renewed every year. 

The width is saved and remembered when you exit the program, But it is per tab.

So people still use proxy. Hmm Okey.  It might be that.
Problem is that all proxy handling is handled by windows. I do not handle it my self inside MC, I use existing functions in Windows for that.
I can't really fix it unless I can recreate it. So a video is to no use.
And since it can't talk to the net, It can't even send a crash reprot to my system. So I do not have that to go on.

I will add it to my list to check,

If you start the MultiUpdate , does it also crash if it checks for new version? it is using similar ways to talk to internet

Support and Feedback / Re: Startup definition file Sort by date
« on: October 03, 2018, 14:23:56 »
No,, sorting is defined per tab. So each tab can have it own sorting
But you can create TabSession or scritp that you run at startup that does it

Support and Feedback / Re: Thumbnail Preview
« on: October 03, 2018, 14:22:35 »

Yes, There is some situations where Windows does not return the wanted thumbnails for folders.
Im looking att some workaround around that that. So it might work better in the future.. maybe,

Hmm strange. I can't reproduce that.
Using proxy should work, It picks up the proxy settings from where it is configured in internet settings

You can start with parameter /NOUPDATECHECK it will also skip that.

You can deply the Portable vesion and edit the default config file so that update check is off

It is scanning the folders and queuing the files
The scanning is the thing that take times, becuse HDs are slow when scanning and there are a lot of files in a folder, Specially over the network.
But the scanning the folders and finding the files to copy have to be done. Either up front or between all each file.  Doing it upfront then the file directory is still in cache and will be faster than doing it after each file.

but I need select a file to use it.
if it is a empty folder,then I can not get path.

No you get the current path
Ctrl+P or the "File/Folder path into clipboard" option from the context menu

Support and Feedback / Re: MultiCommander Future Plans
« on: September 02, 2018, 13:33:10 »
Yes I was planning on posting blogs stuff there but that takes times to write up an so. And the little time I have to spend on MC I want to spend developing.
I maybe should remove that, since I do not have time to update it

The development is alive. BUT not at the same speed since I'm a lot more busy with my day job and other stuff. But I still work on it and still add new features.

Yes.  The part is currently not working since they both have changed API and there is no free API to get that for now.
But I have on my list, to look for alternatives

Portable device are found under "Portable  (WPD:)" device and MC is using Windows Portable Device API to find and talk to portable device.
If it is not show there try to force a refresh since Windows does not always notfiy MC that a new WPD device have been attached.

Menu > Tools > To Clipboard

There you have many options for Copy to path.. and many of them have a shortcut key by default.  And you can also configure one your self.
And This options under "To clipboard" is also available in the Shell Context Menu. under the MultiCommander option

?? eh

You can add own and more items to the MultiCommander submenu in the context menu.. You do that in Menu > Configuration > Custom Context Menu

As a workaround for now you can set a text in the Title by from command line with -T  eg  -T=Moon

So it should be possible to write a bat or powershell script that will set the current username to that parameters when starting MC.

Support and Feedback / Re: Multi Commander will not update
« on: August 24, 2018, 14:40:40 »
I keep getting the message that updates to Multi Commander (MC) are available.  I try to update but get the message that I can't update when MC is open.  When I try to close MC, it will not close, so I can't do the updates.  Any ideas on why this is happening and how I can fix it?

If it say that MC is open then MC is not closed. It can't update if the program is still running.
Make sure it is closed, if you have the option minimize to tray enabled, It is still running but is minimized then right click on the tray icon and select "Close MultiCommander" 

Or open Task Manager and see if there is a MultiCommander.exe process running. if there are, Right lick and select End Task

Support and Feedback / Re: Center File & Folder Names.
« on: August 10, 2018, 20:49:22 »

But why? Centered ? And that would not be annoying?  The Beginning of all the file is listed would be in different places. That would be even more annoying
Everything is normally aligned to the left because we read from the left to right. (But if you are from a country that reads from the right, than it might be annoying to show left aligned names.)

Or do I not understand what you want ?..
