That is a NTFS special field that is not exposed by windows by normal APIs.
There is probably a reason why Microsoft do not expose them via the normal file API. problem not support on version of NTFS or something

Not sure how what language you are looking for.

If you want to create a translation and do the translation there are description here on how to do that,129.0.html

There are only 3 timestamps on files/folders.
"change time" and "modified time" is the same.  only different name

Ehh YES.  Here is an example of the first .udc in the zip:
Code: [Select]
#Name:Refresh Tab
#Desc:Refresh Current Explorer Tab

#file:Refresh Tab.mcs

As I said I, exported all my MultiScript sources to .mcs files in the Scripts directory.

Should I replace the files references in the last line of the .udc (as above) with the actual MultiScript sources?

Maybe the migration code should remove the .mcs file and convert it to a .udc, Then there would not be 2 files. But not so sure about that..

The need for File ref to have sepearate files are not needed anymore. and almost nobody used it so the support to create it from inside MC is removed.
It also create more confusion since you now have 2 files for 1 command.
However the support to load then still exists for compatibility reasons.

eh that is should not be xml.
OK - I see why I thought that MultiScripts could not be edited:  The .UDC files store only a reference to the (external) files my scripts are exported to.

Ehh No ? Your entire script was exported to .udc, But if you was running with external scripts. then the script was a ref to a external file. then it is what you get.
It is however not possible to create it like that anymore. But if you have it. it will still load them.

It was a bad format. you could not edit script in another editor. it was harder to share script since by default they was all saved in the same xml.
You can now also buddle you script up in a zip. And you are able to have them organized in folders. So admin can for example push out common script for users. without touching personal script files.

eh that is should not be xml.
the example file is a zip with couple of script included . so not sure how it can be 49 bytes and xml..
the current script will be converted into seperate files in the script folder.. they will still be possible to edit them. From inside MC there should be no differnce.
only the way they are saved to disk are changed.

This should work as of the v10.3beta

Current UserDefinedCommand will be auto converted to a new format.
The old UDC file was UserDefinedCommands.xml and it will be rename to UserDefinedCommands.xml.bak-Migrated
So if you revert back to old version. You need to rename that file to get back your commands

The new version store UDC Scripts in Config/Scripts/ Script can be seperate *.udc file or bundled together as a zip.
They can also be organized in folders. Script/Examples/ contains examples script.
If modifed then do not keep them inside the zip. since this zip will be update on new versions.

Thanks, Mathias.  125% but, yes, scaling.

I think I'm starting to understand.  What I didn't realize is that Windows provides a way to either scale everything or just increase the size of text.  I may be able to meet my needs by just scaling text.  Is that what you're suggesting?

What I just now tried is to change Windows settings to 100% scaling and Ease of Access > Display > 'make text bigger'.  This does appear to make text bigger in File Explorer but not MC.  So I then used Configuration > Explorer Panel settings > Display > Fonts and adjusted those up.  That seems to do the trick.

Is this what you had in mind?  Asking for myself and I figure others may also find the steps helpful.
No MC support scaling, 125% scaling should look fine.125% should be almost as 100% for most places. but can be different sometimes. because 125% scaling is a weird scaling factor that cause fraction error when caluclating sizes.

When upgrading to 10.2 I noticed the same change as the OP.  The font size of the device dropdown no longer matches that of the tabs above (or the file names below).  I don't see where I can configure it -- perhaps I'm missing something?
That is correct . . guess you are running 175% scaling ?

It tries to detect if file is binary. the sample of the file (first 1000 bytes) have lots of none ascii then it is binary.. I think the limit right now is 10%.. and 26 character file. and 3 potentional none ascii charactgers..  that is over 10%
So it is only for very small files this is detected as binary.. I see if I can tweak it..

I been able to reproduce this. But it is not a easy fix. It is the color formatting that makes it crash. But require a bit of work to sort out why.

I don't know what listary is. But MC can open a path from commandline

Alt+Backspace, show favorites windows where quick path config have moved to.

You should see QuickPath #1 -> #10 in the keyboard Customaztion dialog under "MultiCommader core" - "Global"

There is no difference in Portable vs Installed.

Insert toggle selection and move down to next

Space toggle selection and calculate folder size

It depends on what default setup for Mouse/Keyboard you are selected at first start up, Commander Styled setup or Windows Explorer Liked setup

If you prefer keyboard the I suggest Commander Styled setup.
Space , Insert key above the arrows on a full keyboard will select and move to next file.
+ on NumPad will bring up box where to add selection by filter, - on NumPad, remove selection
Ctrl + (+ On Numpad)  will select all files with same file extension. (See Edit menu for more)

Commander Style setup you also toggle the selection of files with right mouse button (shell context menu is then moved to right double click)

If you want to run in WindowExplorer Styled setup you can tweak how it works so it does not deselect all items so aggressively in Explorer Panel settings > Display > Selection and Checking of items

Thread Closed because it is old. it is from "January 09, 2017" :)

Instead of clicking in the correct panel, just press tab key if you need to change view.. select all is only needed if you run with Windows Explorer Styled setup. since it will auto set file in focus.
with commander style setup you do not need to selected all. since files are not auto selected

But, No There is no automatic constant folder sizing yet. Test with automatically constantly size all folders showed it affected the performance a lot.
However there are plans for some low prio background thread for this that will auto pause when other things need the performance. However that require quite a bit of work and will not be on by default

Currently there is no easy way to find duplicate on entire drive in MC

If file is missing BOM it is almost impossible to do 100% accurate detection of file type all the time. There are so many corner cases.
Problem is that Unicode of extended language like .jp or chinese can be detected as binary files instead of text.
But might be possible to improve the detection some way.

Problem for me is to find test text data that will fail for me. because searching ascii files is depended on language settings on the computer.

In v10.2 that coming soon.. In Core Settings enable app log and set loglevel to debug.
When doing content search you will get entire in the log view of what content type it detects it as.
1 = ascii , 2 = unicode , 3 = utf8 , 4 = binary

Press Ctrl+L to open that panel

Actually thinking about this now again. I think the failure is that it is matching it as binary instead of ascii. So let me know what the logout say.

Closing thread since this thread is a mess. different issues mashed up into one.

If you have scaling issue create new post

I've just installed latest build (Dec 04, 2020).

After setting all user-configurable fonts to 10 everything looks nice on my system (150% and 1920x1080).

Whatever you changed in last built, fonts are OK now. Thank you, Mathias.


Still not consistent, I'm afraid. I didn't notice before. See attachments.


Never said it should be extra large in all dialogs.
It is by design large in copy to dialog
