Support and Feedback / Re: MM Locks Folder
« on: October 21, 2019, 19:03:13 »
according to this it shouldn't

but I cannot delete from powershell while a folder is open, I am using portable latest version in admin mode for both processes

MC do  not lock the folder that it is displaying. If the folder is removed that MC is displaying to will go to the closest path it can.

BUT when you enter a folder it will start some background work in the folder to get icons or thumbnails if you are viewing in that mode.
And if you have extra columns added , some of them will get there data in the background after the content is viewed.
This extra things can cause files not to be delete. and if moved to recyle bin it can prevent that too..
But this things extra things are often completed very shortly after the folder is displayed, and then it should not be a problem.
And often if you get it you just to retry and it work.
It is very hard to trigger it becuase of this things, since none of this things keeps a hold on the file for very long

Re: Mathias Not sure what you trying to do..  Extract ?? copy ?
You can search the file and then rename them in the result panel or using multirename tool


I want to select all files in multiple folders, rename them and then copy to a different folder.

Thank you,

There are dozens upon dozens of folders, some will be empty. Can I tell the program that IF there is a file in the folder to rename it, and then copy it to a different folder?

That is a very specific scenario. And you say Rename it.. Then you want some automatic rename.. and then you need some rename rules on how to rename it
So no, not a build in thing like that. You might be able to do it with script.

« on: October 16, 2019, 13:41:43 »
Version v9.0 is now finally out !!!
Next Release will not contain any major feature like that. It will be a fix up release for bugs that are found and minor changes and minor new features.
And will be released a lot faster.

When can we expect to see it?
As soon I as I have time to finish up the last items in the backlog for the next minor release.. Hopefully soon

Hello !
I downloaded few minutes ago the x64 version and i really love it ! its so great !
Now i have two basic questions i have, and i didnt find in the options ... or i am blind, dont know.
And as i said, as totally noob with this great soft ... the questions are:
I am in a folder, with 4 files (for example) and a subfolder. How can i set it to choose only files and not subfolder when i press * ? So for example ... i have:
So, when i press * the software ONLY select files and NOT subfolder ...

Thank you !

And the last question:
I have the superior panel with units and menu and all things I need.
How do i remove / not display the things in the bottom so the panels are bigger? is it possible?
Thank you !

And greetings from Rosario.
Ctrl+B toggle the Button panel

You can not make * (Toggle all selected) to only work on only file or only folders..
But you can create own filters to be used in +/- selection that do that, or own commands that do that that you then assign to a button/key/menu

Support and Feedback / Re: Luggish and slow!
« on: October 13, 2019, 20:54:59 »
that is not a common case..

Very common case, on all my machines (physical and virtual). Even with 16Gb of RAM and fast SSD. Something is really wrong not with my setup but with your app.
It might be common to you because you have similar setup.. that does not make it common for everyone else

Then what is unique with your setup.. Why is not everyone getting it.
It is some settings combination you have that cause it ? maybe.

It is impossible for me to say why it is happening to you. And I can't fix it If I don't have any thing to go on.  Send me a memdump., check och change settings that might cause it. or tell how to reproduce it.

6 instances of MC in the memory and no one on the taskbar! Horrible! It's extremely buggy and slows start.
I'm not able to recreate that.  Need need to provide more info if you want to solved. that is not a common case..

And slow to start ? Hmm something is very strange with your setup then. But if you got lots of tabs to open and lots of network or remote location is can take time for filesystem to response.

Support and Feedback / Re: MC doesn't show custom-iconed folders
« on: October 08, 2019, 23:41:31 »
I do not care it's virtual folder or physical, I cannot access it from MC so it's useless.
Yes it is. so use OneDrive instead or one that are doing it the correct way using the filesystem layer..
You are using a a 3rd party software, that hook it self into Windows Shell that is a higher abstract level of the filesystem.
No normal program can access it. You can only access them via the ShellView. So any program that access the filesytem of that location will not see it.
Programs need to be designed around the ShellView and almost no program are except WinExplorer and some other FM.

MC is not designed around the ShellView like WinExplorer becuse of a lot of other reason that make the ShellView very slow and bad.

I do not think so. It is by design.

I guess the file does not really exist on the filesystem. But a virtual file shown in WinExp that will hook into you cloud thing.
MC is not showing the filesystem from the Windows Shell level. But the core level. And shows the file system as it actually is. Without being handled but the WindowsShell Layer

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Several windows

Okay, thanks for the answer.
In view of this impossibility when there is space available, I uninstall it because as such the software loses its interest. Thanks anyway.  :(  ;D
I Understand.. If you not using it as for what it is designed for there are other simiar apps that might fit your needs better. One app cant fit the need of everyone

More Tab panels ? no that would break the design of the default target / source panel thing.
Only 2 active panel are support where the active one is default source and the other is the default target panel

I will see If I can fix that

Support and Feedback / Re: regex (search) and regex (match)
« on: October 01, 2019, 08:21:30 »
New? no it's been there for some years

Im not a a big RegEx users so I'm not sure.

But I found this about the difference

regex_match only returns true when the entire input sequence has been matched,
while regex_search will succeed even if only a sub-sequence matches the regex

Support and Feedback / Re: How to keep not reachable path
« on: September 27, 2019, 12:25:43 »
I don't think that would be a good solution. if the drive are gone it is gone. And showing message boxes is not a good solution
It would also not fit inte the architecture on how MC works.

No if a local drives does not exists then it can't show it, it will revert back to C:\ 
else it would show a empty panel. and that is not good.

You can have a TabSession with settings for when the drive is connect and swap to that when the drive is connected

Support and Feedback / Re: Deleted files don't go to Recycle Bin
« on: September 25, 2019, 12:45:29 »
When I delete a file and/or folder it doesn't show in the Recycle Bin despite of the setting Delete to Recycle Bin being checked
Why is that?

I can't say with limited information on what is happening.
What does the fileoperation log say ?

When you delete with that option MC is not doing the delete.. It is then all handled by Windows.
And Windows will move file to Recycle bin if possible

However some filesystem do not support Recycle bin.. Some networked share do not support it, configuration for recyle bin can be that it does not fit there so windows do not move it there.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Nombre de colonnes disponibles
« on: September 24, 2019, 08:37:11 »
I had understood that you could choose the language.
Besides, the buttons and tabs are all or almost all in French, so why write in English ?
In short

I'm trying to find out how many columns can be obtained to get, for example, 3 times the unit D:\ to display different folders.
Thank you for your answers.
English, because I don't understand French. The app have a French language pack. But that is not created by me. There are 20 languages to pick from when starting MC.. I only understand 2 of them.

I don't understand what you are asking about. You want to create more tabs ? so you have 3 tabs showing D:\ ?
If so. then Double click on empty tab space to get a new tab or Ctrl+T to duplicate the current tab

I split and moved this post here since this is nothing to do with the new thing in the beta.

I will check If I can reproduce that.. 
was the folder there since before you started MC or was it newly created while MC was running

Beta Releases / Re: Multi Commander 9.1 **BETA**
« on: September 17, 2019, 09:36:59 »
Hi Mathias,

When is new beta MC released?

When I have time to fix the thing I need to have in the next beta

Did not find logs from you..

I can't recreate it. What that the filesystem log say ? if it locks up it is often because MC is waiting for a call into Windows.

Not current.  it have to wait until the search is finished. since the virtual device would otherwise need to refresh it self to often and that caused some strange effect if you tried to use it at the same time.
But I'm planing maybe some other way to show it. Not sure yet how to show it in way that would not cause other issues
