Support and Feedback / multirename and iso / utf issues
« on: November 09, 2020, 15:55:28 »
I downloaded a bunch of youtube movies and i'm having trouble with iso encoding in filenames.
I was hoping multirename would help but if i for instance try to rename Dvorák to Dvorak it does not rename those files.
I have lots of these files so i'm really hoping for an automated solution, i tried some tools but had little succes.

Support and Feedback / dragging a file over the tabs area.
« on: September 15, 2020, 19:57:46 »
I do this often, drag a file from somewhere into another program, browser etc.
When the drag crosses the tabs area, the tab changes to where to mouse crosses there.  Now i have to aim my drag so it crosses the current tab.  If i don't do that, another tab gets focus which is not what i want. I hope you can understand.

Support and Feedback / when a share is closed, mc becomes unresponsive
« on: September 15, 2020, 19:53:54 »
For instance i have a network share to my laptop form the deskop. If i turn off the laptop then on the deskop Mc becomes unresponsive. It was minimized so i tried to maximize it but i got a blank screen and i had to wait a minute or so. There are also variations when it just says 'not responding', but always with either a network share or an ftp tab that has lost connection.
I'd love to see this fixed and have my fav filemanager become more stable.

I have a lot of favourite folders, i'd love a long list to pick from. Thanks.

Well i did this, skipped a file from the cue.
Then the lower progress said the files were moved 100% while the above progress bar happily continued to move files.  ;D (fortunately)

tabs for some paths with persistant color, for instance always color d:\in red.
So that when you make a new tab and browse to d:\in (or subfolder) it will get red. I have a few paths i would love to define that way, not dependant on the tab property but in some setting window like the favourites paths. Or maybe let me assign a tab color to one of those.

Support and Feedback / search files
« on: April 12, 2020, 13:31:21 »
Hi folks,
What am i doing wrong, i'm trying to search a map for filenames with the word 'on', but it shows me wrong results. Explorer shows the files are there.

1. I just noticed that after a restart mc looses it's tab colors, is there a way to remember/reapply them?
2. On the multi-rename window, please give the Start and Close button both a keyboard shortcut. I would like more keyboard shortcuts in that dialog, after all, when renaming you mostly use the keyboard.

ps i donated and was expecting something like contributor status, it's not important, only i didn't see it.

Script / send selected files to a program in the 'send to' list
« on: March 08, 2020, 12:13:03 »
Back at multicommander after a trial of directory opus. Glad to be back, i prefer MC, not only money wise.

Is it possible to send selected files to a program in the 'send to' list by a script?
Another solution for me would be the ability to assign a key to that specific program in the 'send to' list.
The whole idea is that i'd like to send selected files to a utility with just one keystroke.

And possibly make Start the default button when you press Enter, or give it a shortcut key.
And please also some means of closing the multirename window by keyboard. So that when i'm working with it don't have to switch to the mouse.

Support and Feedback / ftp trice
« on: November 02, 2019, 09:03:23 »
I often see names in a ftp window twice, this is the first time i see them trice. :)

Edit: just now i saw them four times :)

« on: September 20, 2019, 12:06:00 »

Beta Releases / beta 2548
« on: August 31, 2019, 17:50:24 »
- when going back to an ftp window after some time and trying to do something Mc becomes unresponsive, also when doing escape or trying to close the window.
- an ftp window often has all files/folder listed twice.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Make text in tabs smaller
« on: August 02, 2019, 07:14:47 »
Thanks for 9.0.
As we can ask for new features i'd like to repeat the request of a font size setting for the text on the tabs so i can set it smaller. I like to have a lot of tabs open (25+) and the tabs tend to become unidentifiable because the texts are cut off. This won't happen if i can set the text size for them.

I like to have a lot of tabs open but when i do the captions are not readable anymore because the font is so big and the tabs are quite big. A solution would be a separate font setting for tabs so that can be really small. Pretty please.

Anybody seen this?
After a restart it works again.

Support and Feedback / File Type Setup always adds Editors
« on: June 10, 2019, 12:07:13 »
Dunno if it's beta related.
File Type Setup - editors always adds an extra line for Default Picture Editor when i'm not looking it restarts. As a result, editing a pic doesn't work anymore, if i delete the extra default pic editor line, it works again until restart.

Currently there is no way i can see to set file attributes like readonly to a selection. Thanks.

Support and Feedback / dialogs don't show up.
« on: May 17, 2019, 08:03:20 »
I'm having trouble with this, i already mentioned that if there's no explorer window focused in the other plane, dialogs for pack / filesearch just don't show up. Now i'm having trouble with the dialog for 'create new file' not showing up. If i restart MC the latter will suddenly show up again so i'm sure it's some bug.

Support and Feedback / file search / pack dialog does not show.
« on: May 12, 2019, 12:33:35 »
Sometimes when i hit pack or file search, i don't get the dialog. This happens often if the other panel has no explorer in focus but for instance the file search window or configuration window. Setting focus back to the explorer window in the other pane makes the dialog come up again.
It doesn't always exactly happen like this. Sometimes it comes up anyway, sometimes i need to create an explorer window in the other pane.

As far as i can see the only trouble using a single pane is the dialog windows for pack, unpack, search files *sometimes* don't show up. Makes it a nuisance anyway.
Great software, hope to get to know it more.

Support and Feedback / using MC with a single pane.
« on: May 11, 2019, 12:10:06 »
It's what i'm used to. I read a post somewhere Mathias saying it was not designed for single panel use. I wanted to add to that post that it only presents a problem because often the File Search, Pack and Unpack dialogs don't show up when using single pane.
I wanted to add it to that other post but for some reason there was no reply button, i can however post here so there seems to be no spam filter active.
