This can be done with a User Defined MultiScript Command:  I call mine "Copy Left Tab Right Side" & assigned it to hotkey Ctrl+Right.

Code: [Select]
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=LEFT;
@var $LeftFocus = StrReplace(GetSourceFocusPath(),"..","");
@var $LeftPath = PathGetPathPart($LeftFocus);

if ( IsFolder($LeftFocus) == 1 )
{
  $LeftPath = $LeftFocus;
}
MC.Explorer.NewBrowser PATH={$LeftPath} SIDE=RIGHT;
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=RIGHT;

You can do a similar script for "Copy Right Tab Left Side" with:

Code: [Select]
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=RIGHT;
@var $RightFocus = StrReplace(GetSourceFocusPath(),"..","");
@var $RightPath = PathGetPathPart($RightFocus);

if ( IsFolder($RightFocus) == 1 )
{
  $RightPath = $RightFocus;
}
MC.Explorer.NewBrowser PATH={$RightPath} SIDE=LEFT;
MC.SetActivePanel PANEL=LEFT;

I tested it, seems to work like a charm!
Thank you!

You're welcome  :)

Hi Mathias.

Just done a bit more testing and there is definitely a problem with Examples.zip.

As soon as MC 10.3 is opened, the Examples.zip (4.5kb) is immediately converted to the 49 byte broken .xml file, as per my reply #1, above.

Are you able to reproduce this, Mathias?

Also, the contents of FormatDate_Examples.udc and StringExamples.udc are identical apart from the #IDs.

I've just completed the "conversion" of 49 .mcs MultiScript files to .udc format & deleted the .mcs files.

All tested and working.  So about an hours work  ;)

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..

I think that might be a mistake.  It is not a great deal of work to copy-and-paste, overwriting the last line in each .udc.

OK - just tested.  It works fine  :)

Ehh YES.  Here is an example of the first .udc in the zip:
Code: [Select]
##########################################
#Name:Refresh Tab
#Type:multiscript
#ID:02037e64e6fa4aae9987c3080b77776e
#Desc:Refresh Current Explorer Tab
#Options:
##########################################

#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?

eh that is strange..it should not be xml.

Yes, I was surprised!  I was able to extract Examples.zip from the portable installer.

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.

Still can't see why the storage method was changed.  The rest of the app uses .xml config storage...

Hi Mathias.

Yesterday I updated my test environment (portable 64-bit) to 10.3 and there was an issue:  The Examples.zip file was created as a 49 byte (broken) xml file containing only

Code: [Select]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<config/>

???

I would like to know your thinking behind the (big) change to scripts.  For example, it is now impossible to edit MultiScripts within MC?

In build 2743 the Device dropdown fonts are still too large for me (no DPI scaling).

Yes - I misunderstood - sorry.

Script / Re: Link to file in clipboard
« on: November 22, 2020, 16:47:33 »
The clipboard does not exist as a file system object (like a file or folder) so you cannot link to it.

"The clipboard" is a memory object dynamically created as it is needed.

Hi Mathias.

Just installed build 2733 portable for testing.  The first 2 attempts to start the program crashed in Module MultiCommander.exe.

The crash IDs are:   10-J126DU and  10-U126KD
there is a 2735, start MultiUpdate.exe and update to 2735 and see if that works.

2735 fixed it.  Thanks Mathias  :D

I don't get the same behavior.

Why are you closing the tab session?

By default MC will open the previous tab session layout.

What settings do you have under Configuration > Core Settings > Startup?

After a restart of MC, is the  "Lock Tab - allow subpath change" still ticked?

Do you have the setting  Menu -> Configuration -> Menu -> Explorer Panel Settings -> Menu -> Display -> Remember open path ticked?

Hi @dkabi.

Set up your 2 tabs to point to the correct paths, then right-click on each in turn and make sure "Lock Tab - allow subpath change" is ticked.

Does that work?

Beta Releases / v10.0 b2726 Layout Issue
« on: September 21, 2020, 17:04:12 »

I have a Layout Issue with b2726.  I cannot get rid of the last toolbar below the menubar.

I never use toolbars and I would like to reclaim the space at the top of my screen.

The menu option View > Toolbars > Standard keeps reverting to "ticked" after every restart.
