The planing for what the next major feature to include has started. Listed are a some of the major features that are planed for the future. (This is not all, There is also a secret list. Do not want to revel everything that is planed).

We all have different needs. So what of the following features would YOU like to see be included into Multi Commander.

Only feature that require major work are listed here. A lot of minor feature are planed, but they are not listed here.

Any feature that you would like to see that are not listed here ? Then post comment about it. And I might put it up there.

  • Large Icon Support - Able to large file icons ( 32x32 , 48x48 , ... )
  • Thumbnail mode - Show thumbnails of images and files when listing files.
  • List Mode - When listing files, Show only the file name, With multiple entries per row.
  • Internal Picture Viewer - Internal viewer that can show jpg, png and other common formats.
  • MultiRename Tool - Able to rename multiple files/folders using advanced substitution filters and rules, and using file properties.
  • Better Search - Better search GUI and Abel to use file properties from extensions in search, like image size, mp3 genre, and more.
  • Better Overwrite Dialog - When copying a file that already exists on target. Show a better "overwrite file" dialog. that highlight the differences of the files better.
  • File Association - Override file association. Able to configure custom open commands for file type.
                       If a file is launched from Multi Commander, then file associations in multi commander will override they one defined by Windows. This is useful when running in portable mode. (USB)
  • Synchronize Folder Content - Tool for synchronize folders content. that will copy all the changes from two location making sure are the same.
  • Tagging - Able to tag file and folders. Then select all files/folder that has a special tag.
  • Modify/Load/Save File Operation Queue - Rearrange and remove items from the copy/move queue. Save/load queue - Abort file copy and save queue so it can be resumed at a later time

Vote for the top 3 you would like.

No guarantee that the winning items will be included. It also depends on how much work they require to implement

If you have wises for how some of the listed feature should work or sub-features that they should included. Fell free to leave a comment.

I voted for multi rename but would also like the copy and move function to be a little faster than it is especially to flash drives. As it is now I must use teracopy or wait forever for mc to finish. Creating shortcuts does not work either unless they are in the same pane but I'm sure you are working on that already. Thanks very much.

Another suggestion: Support for Mac OSX

How about supporting MAC OSX or even linux?
Why stick with Windows?

MC has great potentials compared with the old NC or even TC.
On Mac there are some initiatives but they are limited (muC) or buggy.

Hi,
Nice to be able to use this freeware software.
Actually I am using AB Commander because it offers the possibility to synchronize folders or files. This is very handy when making back-ups.
This function is one of my favourite.
Do you think we will have a chance to get it soon in Multi Commander ?

Able to synchronize folders or files is a feature that is very high up on the list. But if it will be included into the next major release is not yet decided.

Would really like to see better high DPI support since I use Medium 125% exclusively and have already reported problems with it.

Hi,

Thanks for your continued dev efforts.

However, all I want and i am sure many users do want it to is to be "Able to set the path of both the left and right panel from one command.

I see how that can be useful.

I will be there in the next release.", besides the standard and simple Windows Explorer-like List View. Is this that much difficult to implement?

Regards.
