But then you are not asking windows to unlock it from the standard shell menu.
But from a feature inside the program.

However, I might maybe add a settings. if this is really causing an issue..  I try not to add settings for everything, because there is already to many settings. It is a jungle of settings already

Script / Re: Create folder and move selected files
« on: Yesterday at 09:45:05 »
Problem is that script are normally not run in the background.. The run in the same context as the UI (because you can interact with the UI from script)
So when running a script that takes times.. the main UI will hang until the script is done.

You can tell MoveFile to not wait until it is done by adding "NOWAIT",  Then it will start all of the right after each other without waiting.

As I said..

It is out of the control of MC. when you show the Windows Shell Context menu and select default windows items in that. All that is handled by windows.
MC don't have any control over what happens after you pick and item. MC does not even know what item you picked.

But Are you sure ? When I test now the date/time of the extracted files are the same as the one inside the archive.
Same with FTP.. (But with ftp it can also depends on the server if MC is able to got that information from the server. some server do not provide it in a standard way)

Problem is that it can not be a default behaviour because lots of FTP server do not like if you login multiple times.
And since FTP is handled like a virtual filesystem in MC. it is causing some complexities. So it is not so easy. But I have it on my list. But when I get the time for something like this I don't know.

Support and Feedback / Re: search files as case-insensitive

In file search matching of filename ignore cases, so Trump and truMp and TruMP is found if you enter "trump" or "trump*"
For File content you have to check the "ignore case" checkbox

Regex, I don't know.  I'm no expert,  I think the regex variant is ECMAScript  (Like the one in JavaScript)

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Move
« on: Yesterday at 09:16:03 »
Well it is kind of correct :)

The data is copied, and then the source is deleted.
It is not "moved" until source is deleted. :)

But maybe should be more generic..  Like
Transferred or  Processed   instead of copied

No official.
Since MC is not built on top of the Windows Shell like some other it is not recommended.. However there are way too force it. There are some reg hack to make it happen

There are here somewhere on the forum (I can try to find it if you really want to do it..)

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Undo operations
« on: Yesterday at 09:08:55 »
Yes. Still on the list.

It is not high prio, since it is complex and very time consuming to add.  And it would also only work in some situation like when deleting to recycle bin.
If doing real delete that most people do it would not be possible to undo.
So it would be a feature that only works sometimes for some operations and sometimes only parts of it.

Around a year.. so since 6.9 maybe..
Might be useless for you.. but it was added because many people complained that it did not remember it.

If you allow.  I can add all three (Bat,Sh,Html) profiles to the default profile for the next version

Add the following to you "mcinstallpath\Extensions\MultiFileViewer\ColorFormatting.xml" file. Backup first if you like.

That is the default file,  If you already tweak the colors before, then will have personal file in

(type :goconfig in the commandline field to the personal config folder)

User Contributed Content / Re: Create an empty file
« on: September 08, 2017, 13:49:18 »
You can type "cf <filename>"  (without ") in the commandline field to create a file.. 

cf myfile.txt

and the 0byte file named myfile.txt is created in the panel that are in focus


That is strange. It works for me when I do it

The template (skeleton) file that is create is a file that Office stored in disk, it is normally located in this location
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Root\VFS\Windows\ShellNew\excel12.xlsx   (office 365, win10)
(MC get that Path from the registry)

If you are doing inline rename, you can press Ctrl+E to select the extension part
Dialog during inline rename is bad.  It breaks many of the other quick rename features. Like using Arrow up/down to enter ext/prev item for rename

It should remember it. Unless you are doing something special at startup like autoloading tab setup or have a startup file that defined tabs.

Ahhh when you close MultiRename tool windows.. Hmm I will check

Im not good with regex so I don't know with regex.. But can't you just match "," and do match type of substring or word ?

:) Sorry.. Windows is handling all of that.
If I fake map a it to a letter in MC, it will cause conflicts when you map you own stuff in windows to that letter.

Sorry It is not an easy fix,  But I got the issue on my list.

I know.. But the problem is that not all portable devices report a serial number. (and some fake it by returning same for all of them)
But there are other way. but it must also map into the virtual file system.

I will check.. But I don't think it is a quick fix.. since it would require that it will have to generate a unique path root name, and keep track of the how that is connected with the real.

I actually got that issue on my todo list. But it is way down on the list, It is not very common to add two identical devices at the same time like that.

Ahh Yes.. Since they have the name, MC see it as the same device, that is the problem. Since they are hook into a virtual path system. And they are named the same. the virtual path will be the same.. so they come in conflict with each other.

Show the drive show up but with tooltip and description from previous mapping, so it is only the texts that are wrong?,   I have not notice that but I do not really pay attention to that parts when I use it.. I will check that later.

Feature Requests and Suggestions / Re: Descript.ion and files.bbs

I had some plans for supporting this before.
But almost nobody is using this description files anymore. (and it is a hassel. if you copy files you need to make sure you copy the description files too. and so on) So spending lots of time developing something that almost nobody will use have not been worth it, At least while there been other things to add.

However I still do plan to add some minimal support for it. Like showing the description in a column.
