Beta Releases / Re: New Already Exists Dialog
« on: Yesterday at 22:32:18 »
Highlighting the timestamp of the newest file would be useful. Same for the highest size
Yes I'm planing something like that..  maybe also an icon or something to indicate what is newer/larger  and also maybe a text in other color after..

Also, it could have "Keep both" option -- copy/move with incremental autorename
Skip is the same as keep both, so depend on where you come from.. maybe "Skip / KeepBoth" on the button hmm but might be too long.
Or "keep both" might also mean that it should be copied and rename it.. so that you get both files there

I don't know how the icon can be shown for you if the settings for it is off.. I never seen that and Im not able to recreate that.
Check the config file manually to really see if that settings are saved. Maybe something is blocking it from being saved

« on: Yesterday at 13:28:48 »
From build 2390 MC have a new File Already Exists dialog

This is still work in progress

  + Show thumbnail for images for and icons for other files.
  + For .exe files it will also display the version information
  + Layout changes all Single files option are on the top row. The ALL files options on the bottom row
  + New Option  "Overwrite if size differs"
  + Commands have changed from Replace, Repalce All and such to Overwrite and Overwrite All.

 * Texts can be translated yet. Since they are not finialized.
 * Add "More" button with more option fo "All Items"  like Overwrite all smaller , Or larger . or other ?? YOu have any suggestion? let me know
 * Tool tips for the path row so entire path is shown if very long
 * If you have any idea of other improvments for the dialog. let me know ASAP.

Interestingly, the reverse action, dragging a file from the physical Windows desktop to a folder in the MC window was successful.
Yes, of course since the file you drag is a normal file on normal device and not on a virtual device.

SD do not work the same way as USB Removable devices..
You can not eject a device the same way

Support and Feedback / Re: Can't copy files to or from portable device
« on: November 20, 2017, 19:53:17 »
Portable device are exposed in MC under a virtual device called WPD.. You can not drag those files to Windows Explorer, since windows explorer does not know what WPD is..
the virtual device WPD is only valid inside MC

There might be more about the error message in the file operation log  Ctrl+L.. that might say why.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: File list columns
« on: November 20, 2017, 19:49:47 »
I know but that is not a good way..  But there are other ways.
However it is not added since I never seen a need for it. Also there been other things to add.
Might maybe be added in the future if there really is a need for it.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Editable path in each panel
« on: November 20, 2017, 19:46:46 »
I mean by not having to press ctrl-E though. Not sure why it is locked until ctrl-E is pressed?
It is not locked (?)  it is not a edit field since it is a crumbbar.. you can click and right click on path item to go to them or get a list of subpaths to go there

If you double click there you enter edit mode.. But if you are just pasting a path. There is no need to do that there,.,
And as espkk said..  You can also  enter the path in the command line field to go to that field

Since all copy operations happens on the background this is not so easy. (The panel windows are not locked. you can go to it and continue working with it while a copy is happening)
Since you can navigate away during the copy and do other things during the copy. and that can cause strange side effect.

You can edit it.. Ctrl+E  or doubel click on white space in it
But if you got a path in the clipboard.. You do not need to go there to paste it..
Just press Ctrl+V when focus is on the panel.. if the clipboard content is a text that is a path. It will go to that path

Menu > Configuration > ExplorerPanel Settings
 Under the Detail view mode settings

( or just type ":gosetting ExplorerPanel/layout/FileExt" in the commandline field and press enter )

The type column like the one in Explorer is not available since MC is not built on top of Windows Shell.

MC get the dropbox folder from where Dropbox save that settings.. so don't understand why that does not work for you,
I got it myself in another location and it works.

You can add other location as favorites or buttons and so on, But manully adding item to the device list is currently not supported.

Not sure.. might be that some of them are to long. You can try placing the device toolbar on its own line, You do that in explorer panel settings

Support and Feedback / Re: Active Side every Time 75:25
« on: November 07, 2017, 12:37:03 »
Or do you mean that as soo and you change what panel is active that windows should resize to 75% in size ?

if so.. that is not really support.  It would result in a very "jumpy" UI.

That windows is from Windows,  Because the program that you dropped on have acceptet the drop But have not release the data yet.
MC must wait until the the app that accepted the drop is finished.
The problem is really in Audacity, that it is keeping a hold on the drop data while it is handling it.

no,  core support for virtual folders is needed for some other features that are planned

MC do not have Virtual folders yet.

Some kind of virtual folders/devices is planned. And  it is very high up on my list.  However it is a very large feature. And I have not had time to design it and investigate everything that need to be changed to support it, yet.

I tried running multicommander with the /INSTANCE parameter but it does not seem to work:

I run two instance of multicommander with these commands

multicommander.exe /INSTANCE=test
multicommander.exe /INSTANCE=test2

Then I close both windows. Then I run both commands again. But the multicommander windows that was run with /INSTANCE=test2 does not retain its tab list, instead it opens the same tab list as the first instance that was run with /INSTANCE=test.
/INSTANCE do not have anything do to with tabsession..  what it does is to save all configuration under its own instance name.
So using instance instead would be an option instead of using tabsessions

By the way is there a way to run a multiscript just before closing multicommander? That way I can trigger the tabsession saving just before closing.
No not automatic.

I the idea with tabsession it that you want the same setup when ever you start the a tab session.
So for them to be save on exists feels strange. Feel like you trying to solve a problem the wrong way.
I think separate configurations for different instances of MC is a better way to go

I suspect that you have different shortcut to start MC and let it autoload different tabsession ?
Then instead of that you can choose to have different settings for each instance instead.
Then everything is saved when you exit for each instance

With commandline option  /Instance=NAME  it will store separate settings for each session.

(NAME should be any name you want to use to idientify that session with)

You might be able to create a command for that.

But you do not need two panels for that.
If you are standing in a folder and press Ctrl+PageDown / PageUp,  you will go into the next/prev siblings folder. (Like go to parent, Then go one step up/down and that into that folder)

The different is that MC is built to show you the file system as it actually is. It is not built from the virtual Windows Shell view concecpt as Windows Explorer.

But the device Dropdown (Alt+F1/F2) is like that virtual view and will show all devices.

The size of the treefolder panel is saved when you close MC and restored when it should return to the same size when you restart the program

No, one tree for the entire app is not planed since it does not currently fit into the architecture, each panel (tab) is its own extension.
